One of the best moments of this whole art-and-book work came this morning when I went into the Lundt-Glover Gallery before all the lights had been turned on, and my artwork was hung and level on the walls, readied the day before for tonight’s art opening. Alone with my art and the diffuse skylight-filtered light… this was an immensely satisfying moment.
I made a couple of videos this morning to share with you:
And the next amazing moment happened just an hour ago, when I was leaving the gallery for a quick errand, and two young women chased after me to ask about my work, life and heritage, after they’d had a sneak peek at the show. We had a buzzy and beautiful chat and I hope I’ve inspired a couple of new writer-painters in the process.
And we’re adding a new component to the wine-art-book-music of tonight: a doodling art station where guests can grab an oil pastel or two and doodle away while sipping wine and listening to classical music. It’s going to be fun!
Join us if you can – and if you can’t, you can read about it here after.
