Yesterday I started 2011 off with my first art show where I was the featured artist along with two other artists from the New York City area. My show, "The Wishful Traveler" is showcased at the Earlville Opera House in Earlville, New York. It was my first show like this where I am the featured artist, and not just showing a couple of pieces with many other artists.
The room where I hung my collection of French and Italian art was a perfect fit, as the room boasts high ceilings and a bank of tall, arched windows which lined one whole side of the room. Several tables and chairs were scattered around the room, which were very inviting proving so by the way people came and lingered for some time enjoying themselves as they soaked in the European atmosphere which surrounded them.
I want to give a special thank you to Patti Lockwood Blais, Earlville Opera House executive director, who was so kind and helpful to me. She couldn’t do enough to make me feel right at home. Also, thank you to all of you who came to the opening. It was wonderful to see old friends and to make new ones, because of you the time flew by way too quickly.
This first experience was so much fun, I really look forward to doing this over and over again. And if you missed the grand opening and artist reception, you can still visit the gallery through Feb. 19. The hours of operation are Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m.to 5 p.m. and Saturdays from noon to 3 p.m. Click here for directions.
