How I spent my weekend

Race-Street-2014 Another season, another pop-up gallery. There was even a writeup in the paper this morning about the new pop-ups making Gallery Night a bit more interesting. Maybe even worth getting out in the heat of early September.

It’s always interesting to see the variety of art in these pop-ups, so very eclectic. I took my two weather pieces, although no one but me thought of them as weather maps. To others, they’re just bright colors and abstract. Good enough. It’s hard to decide about work to be included, but I decided on Prairie Fire and Illusion.

Doing this kind of gallery is not the easiest thing to do. The buildings that house the pop-ups have usually been empty for a while. So, there’s clean up, vacuuming, windows, measuring and hanging work. Then there’s the event itself, with take down on the following day.
