The exhibition of selections from the "100 Black-eyed Susans" was a marathon event! This past September 17th & 18th I brought 14 paintings over to Deborah Patterson's gallery space at 834 on the Avenue, hung 'em up and let nature take its course. My favorite part of the weekend was when my friend Callum R. came over for a personal sidewalk interactive version of the show! Luckily my paintings aren't too huge or heavy so this task was easy and totally broke up the experience of sitting in a gallery all day. Everything looks different in daylight!
The show took about three hours to hang, which seems insane since there are only 14 pieces. But you gotta hang things right and consider correct lighting and eye-level and all of that. Also, the pieces needed to cluster right on the walls. I think things ended up in the right locations.
This is the first time in a while I've been the only person exhibiting artwork in a space. I am so grateful for the opportunity. It was great to see paintings that are filling up my studio space out in the world, under someone else's gaze.
