Almost there...


Last night, late night layout, layout, move it around. again. again. again.

ah yes, let's use the electric screw driver... it is so much quieter than the hammer...

voila! in the morning light...

More rearranging after a second look this morning... dear Adam worked very hard as you can see above. Joanna was still smiling for a photo after a very long week with me.
She transcends superlatives. brilliance. stick-to-it-ness. patience. (ya have to have a lot of that with me) neatness. attention to details. Ditto for Adam. They are wonderful as in completely.
Here is a shot into the front left bay window. Pretty neat. Bruce Andrew McKays Cats! Mary Ann Davis's pottery, confetti colored miso bowls and juice cups next to Jane Kaufmann's Iris Orb and Jerry Glynn's new sculpture. There are the poppies, Mitchell's small works and the new case. How exciting!
Claudine Hellmuth's wall in the main gallery...

Click here for a quicky slide show of some of the hoopla in hanging this exhibition. Tomorrow we will show action shots and final layouts and more importantly, the actual artists and our guests!
Gonna ask DH if we can do a live remote for the evening... oh joy!
One more metal sculpture of Ron Fountains
"Silver Leaves" Go over here to see more with prices.

eQuinox show was set up too... Angela Gwinner's lovely summer photos and
One of the two walls of Michelle Caplans fabulous collages!
... and for those who wish to see pendants without the Australian Medallion feel to them!
on waxed linen and rolled leather cord. Thanks for the input and for asking...

The word for the day is ... bliss ... (doesn't that just have a lovely ring to it?) a state of mind, body and soul.

Oh it looks fabulous! I'm so happy to see Michelle Caplan & Claudine Helmuth's collage work in your gallery. So exciting. I SOOOO wish I could be there to see it all in person. Everything just looks so great.

There's so much stress in hanging a show - lots of decision making! But the end result when everything has a home and is working together is always so wonderful. It's a huge acomplishment!

You should all be very proud as it's lovely looking on screen but I'm sure even more gorgeous in person.
