The first phase of putting together the New Members Artist Art Exhibition is to hang the paintings. We have 12 artists displaying their art works with each person contributing 5 to 7 pieces each. Basically, that comes down to about 66 to 70 works of art that needed to be placed on the wall in some reasonable fashion. Sounds easy, but, it’s not.
Before I move on, I do want to shout out a big, big Thank you to Dan, Manuel and Patricia for their unwavering patience and help. The show would not have been hung without them.
Sadly, step one was to make several phone calls and harass some of the artist who had not dropped off their work yet. After much begging and pleading, everyone managed to get their art to the gallery. In order to see what we were dealing with, around the walls all the different paintings, drawings, and photography received, was propped up against the walls. It was a lot.
The most difficult part of the hanging, was trying to merge 12 different styles of art to work together to create one cohesive show. With lots of climbing up the later (Dan) handing over paintings (Manuel) and then adjustments (Patricia) the art exhibition was hung in 4 hours. I felt like I had run a marathon.
The great news is, the show is up and it is fabulous. You don’t want to miss the first Quayside Gallery Art Exhibition of 2014. Opening reception is Friday, January 10, 2014 from 5:00 until 8:00. There will be white sangria, delicious food, and of course – terrific art.
