When I posted “Let the games begin”, I honestly thought I would be able to make quick posts with a few pictures each day. Yeah, right.
Sunday, I had a brainstorm which probably saved me from a nervous breakdown. I was going to try to move Malynda’s work to here with mine, which is now at the Rochester Library. A total of 70+ pieces. Rather than the nervous breakdown, I selected a second round-trip to Tamworth.
After that, I worked diligently on some of the labels, etc. for my show, which I seriously neglected because of everything else. That won’t happen again (until next time). There always seems to be something that gets put-off ’til the last minute.
I made a mad dash down to Kittery and delivered 4 pieces to the Kittery Art Association for the “Going, Going, Gone” and “Upside Down” group members’ shows-and then I was back on Rte. 16, to Tamworth.
My show got dismantled, wrapped and packed to be added to for the “16” show, and I got it home around 10:30 on Monday.
Now, a show of this size takes me about 4 hours to change. But, because the Stone Church is a music club, as well, I have to hang work so it won’t move. Most of this work was set up with sawtooth hangers and even with two hooks, I could tell that I was going to have an ugly show if I didn’t give the bigger ones wires. And, playing around with it took extra time, too.
Last night, I went back and fixed those that I knew would be problematic, and I really expect this will be a successful show. The owner, Adam was there, and was very complimentary.
