Opening Reception for the The E Word

Opening Reception for the The E Word

Many thanks to everyone who made it out to the opening reception for my first solo show!  It was a great opening!

People started to arrive right on the dot, and before long, friends and art fans were arriving so quickly that I did not get to meet at least a couple of dozen guests (sorry!), nor talk to quite a few of my friends!  The good advice I got from another artist was indeed accurate: “Think of it like a wedding, you won’t be able to have a complete conversation with anybody, but they won’t mind.”  At least I hope no one minded!

It was so wonderful that so many of my friends, some who I haven’t seen in years, showed up.  And I met so many new people, too.  I sold three paintings, and got a lot of wonderful compliments on my work.

The reception was scheduled to go from 7:00-10:00pm, but we were all having so much fun that it lasted until well after midnight.  The great band, The Treachery of Others, even played an extra set.

We had a wonderful spread of food — from fruit to nuts and everything in between, it seemed, and it was nearly all consumed by the end of the evening.  One of the friends of Bay6 smoked a salmon for the opening, which was completely consumed before the night was out.  Cantanker Magazine had also hosted a performance in the Big Medium studio three bays down from Bay6.  Part of the performance included a butter churner of sorts with a guitar neck that indeed made music.  After their performance, they donated cups and cups of whipped cream made from the musical butter-churner.

If you missed the opening, you can still see the exhibit, which continues through November 1st at Bay6 Gallery, open on Saturdays and Sundays from 2:00-5:00pm.  (See the calendar to the right for available dates and times).

  • You captured her pose with such elegant lines and beautiful shading…and ohh, that line from her extended arm, to the curve of her waist, sliding over her hip…well, that is perfection:)
