reception at darnell
These pictures were taken at Darnell Fine Art
, on Canyon Road in Santa Fe, where I had an "unofficial" opening and reception on Thursday night. Unofficial because it wasn't on the regular calendar of shows--it just came about when Janine, the director, heard I was making a trip west. I made sure I had enough work there to justify such a thing--and although two of my paintings got held up in transit (DHL!) I had eight on display.
The reception, and even my little talk, went very well (I'm not a fan of public speaking, but I'm OK with a bit of advance warning.) Really, it was a lot of fun, and a decent turn out for a Thursday evening.
It was also a preview of my "real" opening at Darnell, which will be a year from now, a solo show in October of '08. This news came a bit before the reception, and I spent some time looking over the space I will be given--the three front rooms of the old adobe that houses the gallery.
This is the last installment of my road trip report--if you're just starting to read, you can scroll down to October 20 and back up to get the right order.
