Twinhouse Winter Show 2008

The show went off pretty well on friday. Attendance was lower than previous shows. I believe the inclement weather kept all but the most adventerous patrons from driving in. Family and friends "have" to show up, so they provided a number of warm bodies that night. Above is my nephew Jason, and his girlfriend Alison checking out my wall.

Here are two patrons admiring Karens' work. Twinhouse is such a beautiful space. It's always exciting to see your work hanging there after having it stacked around the house for weeks prior to a show. The strip of businesses that include the gallery had been bought out by developers, and it looked as though the gallery would be demolished in the upcoming months. Now we've heard that there has been a reprieve, and it will remain in its' current location for the next 18 months to two years.

And last, but not least, a couple of patrons discussing the merits of "Business Opportunity in Monkey Town". Jeff Cohens' work looked great. The show included one of his most beautiful water towers. All in all, it was a good night. I sold two paintings, and Karen sold one. I haven't spoken with Jeff since that night, and so aren't sure if he has had any sales as yet. Now it's on to the other galleries. I've got a good start on my second large Milkshake Mixer destined for Stricoff. I'll put up an in progress image soon. Before I end this post I'd also like to thank Karin Jurick for sending me these images from the show. I took my camera, but didn't take a single shot.

All of the work looks so fantastic. Congratulations to you, Karen and Jeff!

Wow, seeing it hang like that makes me long to have a gallery where I can have my work showing..........

It's great to see an artist's work actually on exhibit. We see it close up on your blog, but when it's on the walls, they have such a different look and feel--impact I guess is what I'm try to say.

Congrats on the sale.
