On Saturday, November 24, in conjunction with the opening of the Farnsworth Art Museum’s annual Share the Wonder Celebration, the museum unveiled a site-specific art installation in its Main Street windows. The museum’s inaugural Winter Windows Project, created by artist Annie Bailey in collaboration with artist-maker Andrew White, is a 25-foot-long moving panorama titled “Abbie Burgess, Lighthouse Heroine.” It is a large “crankie” telling the story of Abbie Burgess. A crankie is an old storytelling art form on a long illustrated scroll that is wound onto two spools. Bailey’s automated crankie is painted with ink on cotton fabric. The mechanism for Bailey’s crankie was done in collaboration with Andrew White, who is an artist-maker and educator working out of Midcolab, a collaborative co-working space in Thomaston. The stitching was done by Dayle Ward, a sailmaker at Traditional Rigging Co. in Appleton. The work will be on view in the Farnsworth’s Main Street windows through January 15, from 10 a.m. through 9 p.m. each day.
