Artists@Work: day 4

Does it work for all artists to be out of their comfy studio and into a public venue for a month? Is it easier for a 3D artist to create vs 2D while on display? It’s too early to tell for our group of four but it will be an interesting conversation for next week. I’m guessing it just depends on the artist.

Kendal really took off with her mosaic, cutting & clipping her shapes of glass.

Elaine took lots of photos of people today during work hours and the reception. Unfortunately I didn’t really get around to seeing what she worked on today.

Julia was in and out of the building with her great photo transfers. She had several blocks in progress with transfer images and egg tempera. I’ll try to get a photo on day 5.

By the end of the day I had branch #2 up for display, but not yet finished. Spent time attaching new smaller limbs and creating a change in main branch diameter (smaller).

The reception was full, but not overcrowded. Elaine’s husband Greg played piano, Hester set out a lovely spread of munchies along with punch and wine. I had a chance to see Shannon R, a very sweet friend who is going through a major health battle. It was so great to see her come through the archway into the main gallery, walking tall and looking beautiful! So many friends came to visit and I spent the entire time visiting. It was a lovely event. Below are the 4 photos I took during the reception. The hazard of talking to folks is not being able to take shots. Oh well! Bill Laing was running around getting good pictures of the whole event.

Since the event went late I didn’t get around to posting until the morning of day 5. Having a tough morning with our old dog who had a seizure at 7am. Not certain when or if I’ll be in to work…
