Day 13: Installation day

17 students, 3 weeks, trash + love

Phew! The exhibit is up! It was a whirlwind of a day, but we managed to get it all done. I am so proud of the students for staying true to their visions, following through and creating their pieces with dedication, sensitivity + care.

After all the pieces were photographed, (Thank you Woods Pierce!) the class voted on the best image to use for an evite for the exhibit. Phoenix Down by JoAnna Mills won the class vote! I think the students voted most wisely as it was quite fun and easy for me to design the evite using the wonderful image of her stunning piece.

Here it is:

 And here are some pictures of what today looked like installing:

I will post images of all the individual works with their titles and reserve prices over the weekend. The exhibit officially opens tomorrow morning. Bid sheets are in the binder at the gallery on a podium fully prepared to start receiving bids.

Hello deadline, so nice to meet you.

BRAVO to the "Interceptors" and THANK YOU to the students, MBC, The Staunton Augusta Art Center, Tom Yeago, Joe McCue, Friends of the Middle River, Bruce Dorries, Modernboy Woodshop/Paul Borzelleca, Professor Jim Sconyers, and Professor Paul Ryan so very much for giving me the opportunity to work with you and for your valuable help and input. It has been an honor + means a great deal to me.

Enjoy the show!
