The Christma tree comes down tomorrow and the last guest has flown home. Now it is time to begin again. I had a great time ending the year and anticipating the Holidays with my family. I also was able to have a few of my family friends help me share my first opening in a gallery for this new decade. A friend of mine belongs to a cooperative gallery, EDGE Gallery, which has the tradition of asking each member to ask a fellow artist to exhibit a work of art with them and to share a common theme. The exhibits name is" Pairings" and (Dania, who was kind enough to invite me to exhibit with her), and I decided to use the shape of cups in our indivdual work.
It was a great way to begin the year as the opening was Friday, January 1, 2010. Even though it was a cold night we had a large turn out.Dania's piece continues her exploration of drawing media. It is a graphite bas relief. I used pastel.You can find the work of Dania Pettus and other Edge Gallery members and the works of thier invited guests on exhibit through January 25th. It is a fine way to start the year.
