Last night I had an opening at Metropolis – an upscale wine bar in Brattleboro, VT.Â The Gallery Walk was last night – with lots of people (particularly teens and families) walking around.They couldn’t come in because it was a bar – or at least they thought they couldn’t.Â Welcome and come on in … (thank you Susan Elkin for documenting this!)

Here I am … full disclosure … I have bags under my eyes from health issues and I Photoshoped them out so I can stand to put this here.Â (I also was exhausted from arthritic pain yesterday.)

Here are the paintings … most of them anyway … and the food and you know who … I was going to cut off the bottom half of the picture but Susan was not happy about that idea.

Here is Metropolis – I think Susan has added a great image for her Night Light series … I love the sense of magic here!!

There are 50 different venues on the Gallery Walk and it supposedly has great attendance on the main drag. Ouch .. this is not the main drag and I found out that this is the norm on the side streets – it wasn’t my work that had such sparse attendance.Â But I do wish I had let people know further ahead – I would have if I had known.Â Oh well, a lesson learned and I will next time. BRING YOUR OWN AUDIENCE!!!
I did have a wonderful talk with an artist I had spoken with but not met. That was great!! Also I had a conversation with a potential customer who wanted my business card. I have a couple of copies of the wonderful catalog for the Gallery Walk – it is cool to be listed in there!!Â The show is up through December 2, 2008 if you want to stop by Metropolis, 55 Elliot Street, Brattleboro, VT. Thanks for coming by!
