Slump – 12 x 12 Oils on Canvas by Jennie
while not the most successful opening I’ve had, this certainly was one of the most fun! we sat around and caroled, ate junk food and commiserated about the rain keeping the patrons at bay. This was all followed up by dinner with my best collectors eating hearty and warming food. all in all, good company and good fun!
I’m re-thinking the whole openings on a weeknight deal. it’s common here to have openings on Wednesdays or Fridays. On paper a wednesday opening makes sense – it’s payday, most galleries are close to the CBD and it’s a nice midweek break. the reality seems to be that it is mid week and everyone is too tired.. except for the artists of course who are excited by the prospect of seeing people, taking about art, being charmingly bohemian and of course getting free food and drink. I worry that the wednesday openings just don’t seem to be as popular. I think it is something to consider in the future.
the show is on from now until christmas – I hope you go see it – it’s a wonderful collection of different types works by different artists at a lovely and relaxed gallery.
