the opening

was great! the few photos i took don't even begin to do it justice. the gallery space is wonderful. the work was great. but the best thing for me was visiting with the people there!

it's always great to talk to Sue Galliano, and Sidney Wilder, the driving forces behind the Grand Isle art exhibit; they've done a fantastic job putting together a first class exhibit and focusing attention on the plight of our disappearing coastline.

and i finally got to meet Cynthia Scott in person! we've been connected through the Surface Design Association for many years and have corresponded but had never actually met. once we did, it was easy to see the connection.. that's me with the striped shoes.

i was just sorry i hadn't put my black and white striped earrings on! i love the vessels she had on display. anyone from the gulf coast will recognize the raw material used to create this piece:

i hope to be able to get to the Carrol Gallery for the current exhibit to see more of her work.

here is a shot i took of the Very Large window that looks out onto the city. as crowded as it was i can't believe i didn't get any people in there. to get an idea of the scale, i had to stand on tippie toes to reach the top of the partition on the left.

and on the side you cannot see in this photo is my tryptich, the longest year.

all in all it's a really worthwile exhibit. if you're in the area between now and the end of november i urge you to stop in and see it in person.
