Closing reception of “Sleeping in the Forest, Waking in the Desert”

It’s been a busy few weeks for me and I’m glad to be back to the blog.

I enjoyed a lovely closing reception at Runnels Gallery on Friday and want to thank everyone who came out to see the art and show their support in general. I really appreciated the feedback and great turnout.

I have some pictures of the evening to share with you!

First, there was the food (That is warmed caramel dip… mmm)!

Although we didn’t manage to document all the goodies, we couldn’t miss the crazy cupcakes!

There were so many great people who attended (and yes, I am poised to devour this cupcake)…

Hanging the show

I spent this morning working with Caitlin and Bryan at Runnels Gallery, organizing the salon-style hanging of my show. There is still a lot to be done including lighting and furniture arranging, not to mention some framing! However, I can finally tell how it will fit in the space and am getting really excited about the final outcome.

Below is the Fine Art list of Events this fall.

My show is circled, the arrow indicates a student art show I am jurying and the hearts indicate the choir performances I’m in. If you’re nearby, come out and enjoy them all! (click on image to see larger)
