Exchange Day

Exchange day at the Gallery is always a lot of fun – out with the old and in with the new!  I brought in Lily of the Valley with Cows, Rose Mandalas III  & IV, Hybrid Tea Rose I, Rose Bud I and Rose Petals I. So great to see what everybody else was bringing in and there’s more coming tomorrow too! Our hanging committee will work on installing the pieces clear through Sunday. Hanging salon style is a challenging and interesting process – I’m sure they could give the home decorator lots of tips about what works and what doesn’t when combining such different styles and media. You could go in and watch them – it’s like a chess match!

Lily of the Valley with Cows is looking good on the main wall, at least for now. The hanging crew must shift work around a lot before everything works together.

We must sign in and out all of our work – we may not be high tech but we’re thorough!

Here’s one of Jeff Owen‘s sculptures. The robin’s egg blue ball caught in the branches of the tree is quite lovely!

I see Belinda Lima is bringing in one of her great collages – cropped bridge, cat and woman, intriguing – I need a better look!

The work will on exhibit from November 19 – January 24, (art that sells through will be replaced). Our fabulous Holiday Reception is Thursday December 5, 6-8:30 pm – always a well attended, festive affair!
