It has been a really busy week, juggling all my obligations for the Artists Among Us Show and SDA and keeping things going at home. Tonight, we had a soft opening for the artists and volunteers. The show looks fantastic.
As promised, I got a photo of Undulations at the show. I am getting a lot of positive comments from the other artists — very gratifying. To finish the piece, I cut a piece of felt 18 x 18 inches, the size of a gallery frame that I had. I used some Misty fuse scraps to adhere it to the area of this piece that I wanted to cover the area of the frame. I used some Golden matte medium to adhere the square of felt to the canvas of the frame. I then wrapped the edges of the piece around the frame and stapled it. Looks great. Here is a detail:
Here is how my 4 pieces look at the show:
Turning the parish hall into an art gallery is quite a feat. Here it is in progress:
These are the racks we use for unframed bin art, waiting to be filled and set up around the room.
Our featured artist is a potter. His work is really wonderful. Here are 3 of the very large urns that he has on display.
At the artist/volunteer reception, my two co-chairs (Diane and Allan) and I received bouquets of flowers.
This year we added a room for art made by Young Artists Among Us. These are some awesome prints made by middle schoolers.
And, this photo of me with one of the artists is for Mary Beth in Wyoming!
Tomorrow night is our big gala opening reception. I hope to have more photos to share. I plan to have a nice calm day.
