Mon, 10/01/2012 - 1:54pm -- Jody Clowes

Installing Kristy Deetz's and Linda Wervey Vitamvas's  shows went so smoothly that we opened for a sneak preview on Gallery Night last Friday. There were still a handful of labels to install, so I busied myself with hammer and foam tape while people came and went. I hate to hover around gallery visitors, but I'm also really interested in their responses to the work. Hanging labels was a great way to connect. I had so many interesting conversations, about everything from the nature of illusion (Kristy's use of trompe l'oeil) to the history of obstetrics (Linda's birthing chair sculpture), that I'm tempted to re-do the labels every day!
