ANF Architects threw us a great party last night. It's always fun to have an opening where more than just your own mailing list are invited. I think Elizabeth's work and mine are beautifully complementary, and it was fun to introduce my friends to her work. I met new people last night from her list and from ANF's regular group of attendees.
Also, unlike some of my shows, I was not responsible for restocking wine and refreshments, so I could talk to people and not worry about logistics, which was a real luxury. A more relaxed opening was also enabled by Marilyn Donnelly, a lovely woman who has adopted my artistic efforts as a worthy cause and helped me out on several recent shows. She and my fabulous mother-in-law manned our sales table all evening, which left me free to greet people and answer general art questions instead of having to manage sales as well. It takes a village to have an art career, and I'm grateful for all of the people in my life who help out, show up, offer great ideas, and occasionally take home a piece of art. Many thanks to all of you.
