Glenview Mansion Art Gallery Opening Photos

Here are some scenes from yesterday’s opening at Glenview Mansion Art Gallery. Thanks to everyone who came out and joined us. We were too busy enjoying the company of friends and family to get many photos of the show, or any of us! It was great fun, and thanks to Julie Farrell, the Director for the thoughtful and creative ways she displayed our work.

Loved how Julie placed these two portraits of my niece and me together without knowing it was a portrait of my niece.

All the work has been delivered to Glenview Mansion Art Gallery and it promises to be a great show. The Opening is Sunday, Nov. 6, 2016 from 1:30 to 3:30 but there are other days to see the show before it closes on Nov. 23, 2016.  Our part is done and the work is now in the capable hands and great vision of Gallery Director Julie Farrell. She is the one who places the work and makes the vision of four different artists sing together.

See you at the show.

Mass production of ATC’s

On the work table are some collages that will be turned into ATC’s Artist Trading Cards for a visit to Artistic Artifacts where artists trade these fun little 2.5″ x 3″ artworks. I’ve sewn together papers, watercolors, fabric and some shiny radiance papers which are then cut down to ATC size.  It’s a good way to ‘mass produce’ a lot of little collages.
