Stories in Paper Opening Reception

I had a blast at my opening reception for "Stories in Paper" on July 8th. Here are some photos that my dad took during the opening:

Here you can see my name on the wall along with the title of the show. I made sixteen collages for the exhibit but we could only fit fourteen in this space.

An HDR shot of my brother filming the gallery - he came all the way from NYC just for the opening. What a surprise!

Beginning my talk - the gallery set up a projector for me so I could show slides as I discussed my work. It was especially helpful since I could show photographs of each step for my work in progress.

The crowd standing near one of the solo gallery entrances - you can see a bit of the work from the all-media membership show for the Art League.

And an action shot of my talk.

I can't believe the reception is already over. The show was scheduled for 2010 back in 2008, so I had a couple of years waiting for this exhibit.

In other news, it's been a few days since my last blog post - I've been quite busy preparing for the next couple events I have planned in my agenda. This week I'm giving a little talk and demonstration to a collage group that's stopping by my studio, and on Thursday I'm giving a lecture on blogging.

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!

I love to see your exhibition shots ... makes me feel so happy for you and your accomplishments.

You also look so fresh and lovely in pretty dresses that remind me of collages. A complement to great art.
