The opening of my solo exhibit at the Brattleboro Museum was terrific! Lots of people, lots of wine (I only had one glass)  and lots of  intriguing questions about my art. The opening was for members or invited guests but there were easily several hundred. Brattleboro is a big art town.
The first thrill was arriving at the museum to see that they had chosen a HUGE blowup of a detail shot of one of my pieces as the show announcement on the outside of the museum.

That’s me in the middle flanked by my husband and friends. I’m curious if I could get possession of that sign in October when the show’s over. Any ideas what to do with it?

I truly enjoyed all the interaction with folks and having to articulate answers to questions like: “What draws you to using cellular imagery?” or “How do you begin a piece?” or “Are you someone with enormous patience?” (no).

I tried to be present with each person who took the time to talk to me and I think I was mostly successful.
I’ll be giving an Artist Talk at the museum on October 6th at 7:30 (mark your calendars!). So that’s the next thing to stress about…
