bad news is we didnt get our main piece until the fair had already opened

i shouldnt complain as there were six galeries that had NO art most of the first day
we all used the same shipper and the shipper got stuck in customs

 photo IMG_3161_zpscd8e6d9b.jpg
some galleries staged a walkout of hte fair as the fair did not help us in any way or seem to care until the very last second when it was too late

 photo IMG_3162_zpsa09bb4a6.jpg
but then the works arrived so they chipped out a bit

  1. Nicely hung LoLa’s.
    You know what I mean.
    Matthew’s work just gets better.
    Can’t wait to see where they both go now.
    It’s fun to see these artist develop and flow into the next thing.
    Thanks Kathy
    By the way you are looking pretty good these last posts.
