A perfectly delightful evening! The show was beautifully hung, enthusiastically appreciated, and well attended. I arrived early to meet a collector, stayed late and never once thought about sitting down during the five hours on concrete! So nice to meet many who already know my work, own some or anticipate the possibility.
I understand it's been reviewed so will hold my breath. Nancy, the owner, and her trusty assistant, Kim, always put on a good show, Nancy's husband is a caterer and Kim's fills in as bartender, so it's a smooth operation. The gallery is large and accommodates many works without feeling crowded or sparse, it was a good looking show! I arrived early, stayed late and never once thought about sitting down during the five hours on concrete! So nice to meet many who already know my work, own some or anticipate the possibility.
My daughter-the-photographer-with-a-real-camera will give me a CD of photos she took but the above will give an idea of the layout, though not all paintings show... did the best I could in a hurry.
Enjoyed a great visit with old friend Byron Myric and his lovely wife... couldn't help buying another of his wonderful raku pots. They really worked well with the paintings. Our design processes are very similar and the work played off each other perfectly.
