Last night the Guild show, “collaborations and innovations” opened in Burlington at the Firehouse Gallery on Church Street. It was a very busy night. I have to say, our jewelry box was a hit. I got a lot of very complimentary comments. Dana and his family showed up and stayed for a while. We weren’t able to get any pictures with him though. Here are a couple of shots of the box and of the show.
The first two shots are our box. One from the front and one from the back. Dana really came through. It looked great. The mechanism was a little sticky but was loosening up as it got worked more. My only complaint on the piece was from a mis-communication between us and I put the top on off center. It is too far back but people either didn’t notice or didn’t care. It glared at me, but I tend to be overly critical. The other two shots show some of the other work at the show. The members really came through. There was some real nice work there. By the way, in case you didn’t know, click on the image to see it full size. Michele and I will be working the gallery on Monday and I will try to get some more shots.
On another note, (you knew I was going to go there) have you been watching the tour?? So far it has been the best in recent memory. I think Lance lost it on stage three when he flatted on the cobbles, but there is a long way to go so we’ll see. If he’s going to pull this one out, he’s got a lot of work to do. I just watched stage 7 to Station de Rousses. Good finish. We’re in for a great next couple of weeks.
Any way. if you’re in the neighborhood, check out the Guild show. It’s running for the next week and a half. Check out my website if you get a chance. Thanks for sticking with me.
