Ready for Opening Reception

Here are some photos of the exhibit at the Lucile Parker Gallery at William Carey University, ready for the opening reception. Imagine my surprise to see this sign at the traffic light at the intersection for the turn off the highway! It covered the time for the opening reception and the date. Since it would be changed after the opening, I pulled off into the service station across the street to get the picture.

We placed large floral works and a twisted tree piece on the right wall, and abstract pieces on the left and back walls. Four smaller pieces were hung on the passageway to the next room (on left side at the top of the ramp).

The ramp and diagonal railing presented some challenges in the hanging process (the eyes play tricks with getting pieces level), but the unusual shape of the wall allowed for interesting placement.

Great exhibit. I love how everything is displayed and you can get an up close look. It's so professionally done.

Martha, congratulations on a very successful show! The exhibit looks wonderful and given the challenges of the different angles of the wall, that is no small accomplishment. Selling your work is icing on the cake!

Congratulations on your Exhibition Opening and your beautiful art being shared at the University. And to the joy of sales!

As a Community College Professor in Textile Design, I would love to get the support of our institution for a Fibre Exhibition and try annually.

Your art blog is inspiring and should be shared more widely... add the email sign up for the blog through "layout",go to the sidebar on the layout page, select "add a widget", and click on "subscribe by email" button. Place it where you think your viewers will see it first. Then SAVE.
