How about a peek?
Here's a quick recap of the wonderful opening of my show
"Seeking Sanctuary: places & spaces that restore the soul"
Two dear friends found the hotel key-card curtain fun to play behind and got caught in the act! Isn't that just the best: when art can be experienced? a huge thank you to the many who kindly saved their cards for me as well as to the college aged collector who bought the piece to take home.
I got a wild notion that as music is an important portal to sanctuary we should surprise guests with a "flash mob" of sorts. Hubs kindly got on board by, unannounced, playing "Amazing Grace" while viewing the art. Slowly some (pre-planned) guests joined in for a couple of verses that gave the gallery manager a bit of a panic....she came running up the stairs worried she had left a radio on somewhere only to be greeted to a once-in-an-opening treat. Thanks dear singers, such moxy.
The ultimate? When another artist takes the time to study what you have done. Would I love to hear what is going on in his head, yes...and no. But I am lucky to have several revered artist-friends who came out to support my efforts. Watching them intensely view something you have done is a real compliment.
The show is up for another two weeks so if you are in the Linville, NC area give the gallery a visit...there's so much there to see you will be glad you stopped in. Check them out here.
Color me happy,
