I hope my previous post on the first 2 days of the art show were interesting for you, here is the second part:
When I went home after the first day at the show, I felt so tired! So, I decided to enjoy the dinner my wonderful husband had prepared for us and go straight to bed, so I can rest well, before the next day.
I woke up in the morning, dressed up, my guys dropped me off at City Hall and then I went to take some pictures of the art I've missed the previous day. Here are some of the things I liked:
- I have always liked woodcarving and having this wonderful work right next to me was a real pleasure!
- I didn't manage to see these wooden wings operating but they sure looked interesting!
- My friend Julie Branch's work, inspirational as always ( you can click on the pictures to see more)
Me and Julie, happy as clams :-)
Here is a watercolor with one of my favorite flowers:
Ikebana was part of the exhibit too:
I absolutely loved this guy's work, unfortunately I didn't manage to talk to him, just to know his name.
- These were panels with advertisements from long ago, about finding slaves that ran away, selling slaves...just devastating read! I spent half an hour reading them, wondering what became of these people, how many survived, how many dies...Heartbreaking!
These, believe it or not are paintings:
-The last day I even brought my folder with white on black, people really liked the idea to browse through them while they are still without frames:
- And here is the person responsible for this huge, absolutely unique kind of art show ( 1000 artists in more than 12 venues ), who didn't sit down the whole 2 days, making sure everyone was having a great time and everything runs smoothly! I cannot but say THANK YOU, Don for your idea, your enthusiasm and the strength and perseverance to overcome small and big obstacles on the way to greatness! :-)
I hope I can show you very soon my Metropolitan Museum pictures from my first visit there last Friday!
