Jane's two weeks at Guandu Nature Park for her "Made in Taiwan"
project began with the 2-day international Bird Watching Festival held
at the Park. Jane taught visitors to the Fair how to make paper
birds that could each be unique and colorful. Over 10,000 people
visited the Fair during the two days, and many children and adults enjoyed
and making birds from paper. The photos below are from that event of November
6 and 7. A closing reception will be held November 19 from 16:30 to 18:30
at Guandu Nature Park. Please come if you are able to attend.
On Monday, Nov. 8, Jane installed some of her artwork from the "Made
in Taiwan" project in the main lobby at Guandu Nature Park.
She installed her 7 Taiwan Site Maps and 2Yilan County Site Maps to create
an installation in the space. The exhibition will remain on view
during the two weeks that Jane is working at Guandu Nature Park.
Jane and staff at Guandu Nature Park did the installation of her artwork
"Bird Watching at Guandu Nature Park". The bird sculptures are
sited on a new bridge to a wetlands area for bird watching. The
12 bird sculptures in Jane's installation represent the birds that are
common in this area. The birds will remain on view at the Nature
Park and will encourage people to become more aware of birds and their
importance in the environment.
Jane held a two day workshop that had 30 participants. They learned about
papermaking and enjoyed the creative process.
Jane also worked on brushing paper on to trees and signs. These will
be added to her Guandu Sitemaps she is making.
It has grown cold and windy here at Guandu Nature Park. Jane has moved
inside to work on her sitemaps. She has been given the President's office
for her studio. It is located just inside the outdoor patio area she was
working yesterday. Jane is completing her two Guandu sitemaps. She has
decided to use the mud that is found in flats at Guandu to color one of
the maps. She also had an open studio and visitors were fascinated with
her gluing, painting and rubbing the mud onto her maps.
Jane produced two sitemaps at Guandu Nature Park. One called Guandu
Plants Site Map features the four plants Jane used for papermaking at
the Park and a view of the Park at the juncture of the Keelong and Danshui
Rivers. The other piece called Guandu Nature Park Site Map shows
a closer view of the Park's location on one side and on the other side
a view of the marshland and some of the many birds found at Gunadu Nature
Park.is a view of the ParklBirds Site Map. Jane's two new works
and some of the works made by participants in the two-day papermaking
workshop were exhibited at Guandu Nature Park on Friday and Saturday,
Nov.19-20, 2004, with a public reception on Friday afternoon. Many
visitors enjoyed seeing the art in the lobby at the Nature Park and taking
photos with the "site maps."
