Today was the artist's opening reception of the Lily Festival Juried Art show at Stonewall Gallery at Campbell Pottery in Cambridge Springs PA. This year I submitted an art piece called "A Chinese Proverb"and it was accepted! We arrived about 15 minutes into the reception and already it was difficult to find a parking place. Stonewall Gallery really knows how to put on a reception! They have the event catered by a local bakery and we are treated to bite sized cheese cakes, miniature quiches, assorted cookies, fresh fruit salad, punch and coffee.
I am standing next to my piece which was hung on matte black wire suspended from the ceiling about 8 inches from the wall so it looked like it was floating.
The lighting in this gallery space is just perfect for showing off artwork. There were 58 pieces on display and included, oil, pastel, clay, mixed media, fiber, watercolor, welded steel, stained glass, acrylic, graphite, photography, paper assemblage, pen and ink and intaglio. The art works were priced from $50 to $2000 and several of them already had "sold" indicators on them. A beautiful collection of lily themed art!
Here you can see my piece straight ahead on the far wall.
The grounds around Campbell Pottery and the Stonewall Gallery are beautiful and have thousands of lilies in bloom.
Roy spoke with the gallery manager and asked her what she does with the wonderful posters advertising the show. She let him know she gives them away to the first people who ask for them. One of them now has my name on it. I do believe it will look quite nice on the wall in my studio!
