September 6, 2008

Yesterday was the opening reception for my participation in a two person show at the Fein Art Gallery in Pittsburgh, PA. The Fein Art Gallery is a beautiful space in an eclectic neighborhood in the North side of Pittsburgh. I shared the space with a well known Pittsburgh artist Kathleen Zimbicki. Kathleen and I share similar color palettes. Her work has a beautiful flow and I was honored to share space with her.

This was the first of several things for me including: a non-group show in Pittsburgh and seeing 25 pieces of mine spread out side by side in one space. My relationship with my art work is mostly from only 12" away. It is exhausting to be part of a show where more of you and more of your work is needed. The opening was four hours and for the majority of that time I was being introduced to people who had come out for the expressive purpose of seeing Kathleen and my pieces. There are many introductions made at these types of events. I struggle to retain the names but more often than not do not succeed.

The "Friendly Funk" show at the Fein Art Gallery continues until mid October 15, 2008.
