I got all the paintings delivered to the gallery and installed last weekend, and took a couple of photos of the process along the way.
I rented a cargo van from U Haul to accomodate the larger paintings. It was a very new van and handled better than any that I've used before, which was great. That used to be my least favorite part of having an exhibition.
Here is the mostly empty gallery, freshly patched and painted.
The paintings are carried inside and lined up where I think that they'll go.
After some suggestions from Ellen Starr, who has an amzing eye for how to hang an exhibit, the paintings are up on the wall and waiting for lettering. Not every painting got hung, and those that didn't fit are up in the stacks so that they are still available for viewing.
The lettering being installed for Sally Jacob's exhibition From the Ground Up.
Everything up on the walls, lighting adjusted, and ready for our first visitors.
The exhibition runs through November 27th and the gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 11am - 5pm. The reception is Saturday, November 6th from 5 -8pm and the Question and Answer panel is Saturday, November 13th at 3pm. We'll also be open on Sundays from noon until 4pm along with several other galleries at Berganot Station.
