Art Show Report

As some of you may know, I had an art show entitled “Flag Day” that opened last Friday. Here are my notes on the opening:

We arrived a little early for the opening at the Jacklyn Kling
, and were greeted by the gallery owners and a few patrons.
The opening received a steady stream of traffic throughout the
evening, actually peaking in attendance around 8:30pm so Jacklyn chose
to keep the doors open a little longer than planned.   The show
consisted of 21 works, ranging in size from 8 inches by 12 inches to
larger paintings in the range of  12 feet by 6 feet.   Several of the
paintings were “banners” – paintings made on heavy unprimed canvas
that was painted on both sides.  Some of the banners were hung full
length, others were presented in a draping arrangement as approved by
the artist.  The works exhibited were primarily acrylic on canvas with
some elements of mixed media and collage.  One painting was purchased
shortly after the doors opened for the evening and two others are
currently under consideration by private collectors.

It was a warm and pleasant evening in Montclair, which certainly added
to the festive atmosphere at the event.  In keeping with the theme of
Flag Day, the refreshment table was festooned with red white and blue
decorations, a flag shaped focaccia bread, and a cheesecake decorated
with a field of blueberries and stripes made from sliced strawberries.

Several local artists were in attendance, including Jo Motyka,
Millicent Sabater, Ann Margaret Pinkman, and Bonnie Maranz.
