Let's just say that the past three days have been spent in recovery. I have worked long and hard for way too many months without proper mental well-being. Piled on evenings of too little sleep, grinding teeth and sore hands. This past thursday I finally got to take over the gallery space at 1520 and with the awesome help of their display staff hang the new show! What a joyous relief.
My work will be up til April 5th, and the show is titled Disappear Here: the art and fashion of getting caught in a dangle.
Anyway, my friend Danielle from Ohio came out for the weekend festivities and helped with the set up, as well as installed some of her own pieces in the show. We were there from ten a.m. til ten p.m. and ready for action the next day.

The show debut was this past friday march 6th- and lots of friendly faces were on hand to check it all out.

I will try and keep you posted in case the gallery decides to have a closing party as well, that way if you missed the opening you can still swing by the end.
