The Art of the State show was fantastic! What a great party they put on...tons of people were there. The space is really large and then there was a catered reception in a big hall at the top of these escalators. I missed all the hot food because I had to run right into the exhibit and find my piece. D’oh! I heard the food was really good.
Seeing the work all hanging and finding mine blew me away. I was really overwhelmed...it was surreal. Me! Hanging in a museum!! :-)
I had a great time admiring all the work and then hovering near my piece to overhear what folks were saying about it. My daughter and husband would spy for me, too. She was hilarious...struck up conversations with many people and would talk up how great she thought the photo was. Heh.
The kiddo lost a tooth as well…eating a cracker. WTF? She says it wasn’t loose. She has quite a few baby teeth still left to come out even though she is 12. Our dentist assures us this is normal. In the dress she was wearing and her heels, she looked at least 17, however, so she blew this woman's mind in the ladies' room who thought lord-knows-what when she saw the bloody paper towel. When I explained that the kid had lost a tooth she gasped, “OH! She's a youngun’!”
It was a lovely evening and my piece seemed to be getting a lot of positive attention! A few artists and others who I spoke with at different points immediately knew the piece when I told them which was mine. It felt pretty awesome to have someone gasp and say “Oh yes! I remember that one. Very powerful!”
:D :D :D
Yeah, I was smiling a lot.
