On Thursday July 30, 2015 (three weeks ago), almost 40 people came out to an art show we had in our basement! It really was a happening.
The backyard was a magical, wild place for both big and little people. There was a station set up for kids to paint the wooden fence with water and paintbrushes / rollers of various sizes.
Throughout the evening, a hearty fire was tended to mostly by Greg and Clyde, and visitors were encouraged to toast homemade cinnamon marshmallows on pre-sharpened sticks. Thanks to one of the artists Gerda Wirick, we even had a tabletop mini-keg of Heineken, Greg's favourite!
Upon entering the house, a 24" x 30" large format sign – lighted, mounted & hung with grommets – greeted / warned visitors ("Danger: Please Hold Onto the Railing"). I am surprised and yet happy that this piece was purchased.
Although I was too busy to take photos during the actual event, happily our 4-year old has a love for taking photos with her Dad's digital Kodak camera. Her photos are always uniquely composed and angled upward, so we know who took them : )
And here are a few more photos of artwork by my good friend Christy. I will add a few more in the coming weeks.
If you missed the show but would still like to see the artwork, please contact me and we can arrange a private viewing for you too (in the next few weeks, please)!
