3 days to my artist reception...

My solo art exhibition at The Paul Mellon Arts Center is up and running.

Looking back, I can't believe I managed to make so many paintings in such a small amount of time...talking about pressure... I can really work under pressure!! When the executive director of the Paul Mellon Arts Center, Susan Clark, visited my studio, mid October, 2009, and proposed this exhibition with my work by January of 2010, I was a little worried. I knew I had enough sculptures for the exhibit but not that many paintings. Susan Clark even said to me that if I didn't have enough paintings to put on the walls, we could concentrate in having my work only in the Gallery space. But if you know me, I love a challenge so, I wanted my work all through out the Lobby of the theater as well. Yes!, an extra 92 feet long wall to fill...

You see, the Paul Mellon Arts Center consists of two buildings with a courtyard in the center. Both buildings have a wall of glass towards the courtyard, so you can see from the inside of one building through the other one across. Just beautiful, to be able to see the walls in both spaces filled with art. Well... one of the buildings holds the Gallery, the box office, classrooms... and the other one holds the theater and such...

I knew many people come to the theater from all over to see a play, listen to orchestras, etc, so it was very important for me to have my work in both spaces. So, in a month and a half I created 30 mixed media artworks for the show, even the one I used for the invitations:

There is a total of 16 sculptures and 49 mixed media artworks that I have on display in both spaces, the Gallery and the Theater Lobby at The Paul Mellon Arts Center, Choate Rosemary Hall, 333 Christian Street, Wallingford, CT

The Artist Reception is this coming up Friday, January 15th at 6pm. Please, feel free to stop by if you happen to be near by...
