The 2nd annual ArtWorks, a multi-media exhibit by Dartmouth College employees, takes place today, October 17, 2007 at Alumni Hall and Top of the Hop, in Hanover, New Hampshire

Today, Wednesday, October 17, from 11 am to 6 pm, ArtWorks, the Dartmouth College employee arts festival, will be held in Alumni Hall and the Top of the Hop.  The event is open to the public and will feature exhibits and performances by more than fifty faculty and staff.

Experience the many talents of Dartmouth‘s employees as we present a wide variety of visual arts, music, video, poetry readings, comedy, and much more throughout the day.  Detailed information, including the exhibit layout, performance schedule, and list of contributing artists, can be found on the ArtWorks web site.

Since I have to work at the Dartmouth Alumni Gym front desk for most of exhibit, I thought I would borrow a page from Brenda Marks‘ blog and host a virtual reception myself.  (Thanks for the great idea, Brenda, and to Alyson B. Stanfield for sharing it on her helpful Art Biz Blog.)Heirloom handknit llama and wool felt hat with freehand embroidery (#58 of 2007) by Carrie Cahill Mulligan was on exhibit today at Dartmouth College's ArtWorks, in Hanover, New Hampshire.

So here’s the scoop: You have until the end of this weekend (Sunday, October 21, 2007, at midnight), to leave a comment on this post.On Monday morning, I will toss all names into a (luxuriously warm, elegantly stylish yet hard-wearing, llama and wool, handknit felt) hat, and pick out a winner!

The lucky commenter will receive a set of 4 glossy hat notecards, each with a different freehand embroidery design.

So don’t be shy… leave a comment,  and enter yourself to win.  Good luck, hat lovers!

  1. Best of luck with the virtual reception. Next time you come down to the flatlands (Boston) for a Notlob concert, let’s arrange ahead and you can bring/sell merchandise there.


  2. We enjoy working with you in Dartmouth Athletics and to be able to watch the hats emerge from knitting to the embroidering stage. You have a wonderful eye for style and color.


  3. What a great idea! I love your flair and excellent sense of color. Please keep me posted on any craft shows near Lyme, CT! I agree that the collage would be a wonderful poster!


  4. Such beautiful work!! and your virtual reception makes for a wonderful display case. So much easier to use online than other sites with not as nicely done offerings.


  5. Hi Carrie. Last month I joined participated in on of your workshops through the League of NH Crafts, and learned to make one of your unique hats. Not only are your creations, lovely and unique, but you share your passion for knitting/designing with us. Thanks so much- I’m inspired! Great website, too1
