Yes, I still get excited to see my work up on a wall instead of in boxes in a closet. I had a more refined and dignified picture I could have put up here but thought, “no – that’s how it feels to see your name all big on a sign with the word ARTIST attached to it!” And people even came to the reception! Well – a good few. It was very cold and rainy. The last time I had a reception for a solo show here in town nobody came – it was snowing and NOBODY goes out to drive in the snow here in the land of no-plows-and-ice. Rightfully so.Chambers Arts! Gallery is located on 200 S. Academy Street in Cary, NC. If you want to stop by you’ll need to call (919) 481-1003 first. The next two weeks it is changing ownership and will be open only sporadically. The show will be up until Monday the 25th of March.
If you do stop by, make sure to wander around to the back hallway as well as the main gallery space. Some of my more whimsical work is hung there.
And…. (drum roll please!) One of my pieces has sold from the show!
Glory – the nine green canvases with the leaves will be going home with a new owner.
You can read more about the creation of that piece here.
