Sneak Peek - Hanging the Show


Today my husband and I took my new collection of paintings to the Good News Cafe in Woodbury, CT to hang my show, Fresh Impressions. Here is a sneak peak of the work hanging in the main dining room.

Preparing for this exhibit was a thrill - sure, there were moments of doubt or anxiety, but that's par for the course for me. Knowing I had the entire main dining room to myself gave me an opportunity to have a real, cohesive, solo exhibit and I think, now that I've seen them all hanging together, that I accomplished my goal.

Another artist, Marlow Shami, is exhibiting her amazing digital artwork in the other dining room (the bar/lounge divides the space between us). I think our work really compliments one another and I see a lot of common themes visually, even though our work is very different both in medium and design. Still, we share the commonality of abstractly weaving a pattern, the parts making up the whole, and I hope visitors will find an interesting dialogue between the two different bodies of work.

There will be an opening this Sunday and now that I've got the work hanging and I've met Marlo, who is lovely, I feel so relieved and very excited for the opening! Here are some pictures of us setting up and the finished walls. I hope to have lots more pictures to share after the opening as well.

EXHIBIT RUNS THROUGH JANUARY 31, 2011.
See my other post about the show for more details.

It means so much to have the support of fellow artists I so greatly admire - thank you all! Victoria, I'm glad you asked. I've just updated this post with that information. The show runs through January 31rst which is so great because they always have busy holiday crowds and the chef brings in a full house on New Years Eve.
