Somehow, there is always more work to do before a show than there initially seems to be. As I begin choosing what pieces to put into the show, I also look over new work that may not be totally completed to my satisfaction. That leads to a flurry of putting finishing touches on unfinished work as well as applying a finishing coat of medium or retouch varnish to even out the painting months before a final varnish coat could be applied.
Next, there's last minute framing to do and coming up with titles and prices for the labels and lists that need to be made.
Then, there's the sending of invitations and calls to make and in the case of some shows, there's the hanging of the show to do a day or two before the opening.
The painting shown is one of a selection of my work that will be at the Mamaroneck Artist Guild Gallery Hot Stuff '08 Summer Art Exhibit which opens Thursday, August 7. Take a look in the Events Section for all of the particulars about time and place.
