Saturday's Crowded Reception

Clouds Swirling Over the Great Marsh 18 x 24" oil on linen

The painting above is included in The Best of TAG 2010 group exhibition. The opening reception was this past Saturday evening. It was wonderful to see a full crowd with both new and familiar faces. There were at least seven other openings happening at the same time so the parking lot was overflowing with the line of cars waiting to get in extending down the street all the way to the exit ramp and on the freeway. Many people said that they parked wherever they could and walked the rest of the way. Thanks to everyone who fought their way through the crowds to get there and my apologies to those that never did find a place to park and had to turn back. There is still plenty of time to see this exhibit. It'll be up through the 30th of this month.

We sold many signed copies of the book 100 Artists of the West Coast II, which includes the work of four TAG Gallery artists, myself among them. I think there are still a half a dozen of the signed copies left. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 11am - 5pm.

Congratulations Katherine! I am encouraged by your report of overflowing crowds at the reception. I love "Clouds Swirling Over the Great Marsh". Beautiful!

That's wonderful that you had such a turn out for the opening reception! "Clouds Swirling Over the Great Marsh" is beautiful. I love the depth of color in it. It is one of those paintings that I'd be nose-to-nose with, trying to figure out how you did it. Congratulations! Great way to start the year.

And thanks for the comments over on my blog (I replied to you in that same post). I really appreciate your feedback!

How exciting to draw such a crowd, I can almost feel the energy from here. Appears that the decision to make the move was right on target.

Marianne - it was fun. It's nice to be located at a place that's already considered a "destination."
