Recently, I was invited to exhibit artwork at one of my favorite "wine and tapas" bar in Fredericksburg...for July and August. The artist initially scheduled for this time was not going to be able to show, so the owner was looking for someone to fill in. Did I mention I had 4 days notice? Following my initial reaction..."No way...can I come up with a collection of artwork to fill the space (20 or so paintings) on such short notice"...I came to my senses, did a reconnaissance (a word from my previous life) of the space and an inventory of paintings and their locations...and accepted.
My realization...doing a "short notice" show is the best way to have one...no fuss, no pre-show stress to produce work, no nervous anticipation building up to the opening reception. I simply hang and show my work, as is.
And so, I will have 23 paintings on exhibit at Kybecca, including 5 new works on aquabord, until September.
Exhibit July 12th through August 2010
400 William St
If you are in the downtown Fredericksburg area over the next couple of months, I invite you to stop by Kybecca for great wine and tapas, and to view art.
