I have had easier “hangs”. And, I am nowhere close to a novice at this. It is one thing when I have all afternoon, but another when I have a very limited timeframe. It is really different when I have owned all of the work. Yesterday, I was seeing the grouping for the first time. And, most of this work I have seen, either live or on line. But, not together. Now I needed to figure out a flow.
I discovered a “link”. The main wall has a very “winter”, limited chroma palette throughout, and that’s what I used there. I reserved the more intensely saturated work for other walls.
Rarely, does any curator discuss framing styles, and how that might change total walls. My major dilemmas actually came from frames, mat sizes, and color intensity. Not the actual art.
It became a good show, because of the work and I did have some good eyes for assistance. I was a stubborn —– for the most part, but I did take some suggestions.
I also had a 19 piece solo show there that is moving to a gallery in February, so wrapping the work well as it came down to accommodate this show was huge! One BAA member and one Sole City member so made that happen!!
The artists represented in this show are: Anne Vaughan, Bill Moore, Beth Wittenberg, Bob Farrell. Christy Bruna, Daryl-Ann Dartt Hurst, Erika Carty, Jim Munro, Jane Lissner, Jean Coughlin, Mike Bramlett, Ruth Bleau.
The hours for viewing are on their website, but if I have enough notice, they will open ahead of time.
