A Flurry of Activity…
First things first – we began this morning by unpacking the art work everyone had delivered or sent. It felt a little like Christmas. My trusty helpers, students from the advanced design class last winter, were real task masters and completely focused.
Gillian and Leona soon lifted lids and began to select work for the display walls. Work was carefully evaluated and assessed to ensure that colors and textures would lead the visitor through the space.
We hung the work and changed location for some several times. Eventually it all came together. Nineteen artists are on display, I expect to receive work from the 20th artist by Wednesday. A spot for her work has been reserved. Colin’s efforts did not go in vain – we took full advantage of the extra display walls.
Thank you Leona, Dorothy and Gillian for devoting the day to hanging the show with me. It would have taken me three days instead of four hours – I so appreciate everyone’s support. These three wonderful students and friends drove all the way from Saskatoon to lend me a hand. Can’t wait to see everyone’s reaction on Friday. Now it’s time to get busy in the kitchen. I have a long list of cakes and tortes that were popular over the past three years… Black Forest Cake anyone? How about Lemon Cream Torte or Creamy Chocolate Torte? They will be part of the line up. If you haven’t already made plans for the weekend try to stop by and check out the Open Studio Event at Buffalo Pound Lake.
