heads up!

All this time I've been telling you about my solo exhibition at the Paul Mellon Arts Center and then I got so tied up that I haven't been able to tell you about it until today. So here is the heads up!

I started setting up on January 6th. As you know, I brought 49 mixed media paintings and 16 sculptures all together. My husband, our kids and their friends help me transporting all my artworks to the gallery. We needed three cars to do that. They all helped downloading my artworks at the gallery and then they left, all but my husband. After unpacking, we laid down all my paintings on the floor, against the walls, and then my husband had to leave to work So, I was left alone with a hammer, some nails, a tape measure, a pencil, a level, and my artworks. It was scary at first, I didn't know how to start or where to start.

So, I armed myself with courage and started choosing which works would go where, taking into consideration the placement of the sculptures in between my paintings. This was my first time putting up a show this big all by my self.

It took me two days to hang the show around the gallery walls...



 ...and the long 92' long rounded wall at the Theater lobby. 





....on the third day I took my time to carefully assemble "Mommy, Mommy, Mommy", my stoneware and wood sculpture.



This piece is very fragile and the gallery decided for me to place it on top of another pedestal so people won't bump into it, hence it looks as it's sitting in a throne!!



Here is my sculpture in its full splendor ready for viewers!!

  1. I really like the details shown by the lighting (the last photo) of "Mommy, Mommy, Mommy". I've been working on a custom wood door for a cabin and wanting to incorporate some stoneware or other details into it. Maybe I'll have a nest image as inspired here.

  2. Hi Dave,
    Thanks for your comments. I'm curious to see how you'll incorporate clay within a door...sounds interesting!
    I tried looking at your work but the link doesn't work...if you get a chance, please send me pictures of your work as I would love to see what you do.
    I'm glad to have inspired you through my work!
    Thanks again, Corina
