Set Up Day - A Day in the Life of An Artist!!


Yes it is show day!! After weeks of painting, photographing, matting, framing and inventorying our work,  it is time to pack it up and head for the gallery.  Audrey and I have been looking forward to this show for several months and excitement runs high. 
Rusty takes an active part in checking the pictures are ready for packing.  (Really he just wants to know if he gets to come too!! - He doesn't!)

Everything is carried in and spread out.  Where to begin?  Things work well in the planning stage but when you finally have the pictures and the space everything seems different.

Ta Da!! One section done and things are starting to take shape. 

Five hours later and 45 pictures are hung, labeled and looking good.  Signs are in place and we are ready to show. This is a peak, but come in and get the full experience.

"Value & Colour Comes to Life" will be on till Sept 30, Langley Gallery and Arts Center, Upstairs Gallery, 20550 Fraser Hwy, Langley. Featuring artists: Audrey Bakewell and me, Wendy Mould. 
Open Mon to Sat 10-4pm with special hours during the Langley Studio Tour Weekends, Sept 21/22 & 28/29  - 10-5pm.

Thanks Leslie and Brenda, getting a show together is a big project but great to see once it is done!
