Packing it Up

I am going to give you a peek behind the scenes in the studio. I am starting to get my art ready to go to Reno for a solo exhibition I am having that will be at the Metro Gallery, in October. This packing is not glamorous stuff. It is organization and paying attention to the nitty-gritty details.

I love to make art and I also love to view art by others. There is lots to see at Five 18 this month as most of the pieces are smaller works from members of the gallery. Here is a preview, but as is most always the case,

Neither Here Nor There

I walked through the door and there they were, all lined up single file. Half were on one side of the room, half were on the other, segregated into two groups. All waiting patiently for someone to approach them.
