|Sybil and Karen as the evening began.|
We went up to Charlotte on Friday to take part in the opening night reception of Karen's solo show at Shain Gallery. This was Karen's first show at Shain Gallery with its new owner Sybil Godwin. Sybil had been the director of the gallery for years and took ownership in August. She and her staff did a great job hanging and promoting the show. Numerous red dots before the doors even opened.
The weather was perfect that evening and the crowd began to build quickly. Among the guests were many familiar faces and dedicated collectors of Karen's work. By the time the doors closed there were a total of 12 sales! A very successful show by my reckoning.
Not one to rest on her laurels Karen will be part of a group show here in Atlanta at Mason Fine Art on Thursday November 2nd. If you're in town stop by.
Here are some images of Friday's show.
