This is it, the last two days of my exhibition at Wave Hill and at the Printmaking Center of New Jersey. I will be at Wave Hill on Sunday from noon to 4, please stop by to say “hello.” After that I am packing up and headed out west for my next project. I have to say, it has been a grant experience!
Wow, two out of three days complete as I, along with my highly motivated, brilliant and faithful helpers, work on my Wave Hill Exhibition install. I have been waiting all year from this and now it is in high wear and looking amazing. Check it out so far, it opens October 18, 2018 with a talk/reception November 16. Here are two of the four walls in progress.
My lean-to ink drawing is on it’s way to completion. This will be going into my exhibition at Wave Hill in October. It is big, about 8 feet long and I hope to have it done in the next couple of days. On Friday I shipped all 19 drawings (the of which are already sold!) to the framer. I have the best framing in the world, Rabbet Art Gallery in New Brunswick, NJ. Dot, always takes great care of my artwork. I went to a few framers in Santa Fe, but I decided to keep loyal to Rabbet. I am completely confident that they will frame it and have it waiting for me at the Gallery at Pioneer Bluffs when I get there on October 2.
I had the chance to hike and run last weekend. A friend and I went to Chicoma Mountain, highest peak in the Jemez Mountains, no trail and a 26 mile forest road to drive in on made it a great adventure. The highlight of the day was seeing an Elk. Funny thing is, the prior week an Elk was my spirit animal. The day before the hike I went on a run along the Rio Grande Gorge from Pillar to the Taos Bridge, stopped 3 miles short of the bridge. I ended with 16 miles, but it was a rough run. It should have been easy but with all the direct sunlight it was just too hot for me.
Today everything is bright and beautiful here in Abiquiu, NM, three more weeks and I start my drive east for all these shows. Until then, you will find me in my studio.
