Today we went to the artist's reception for Mary Lou Steinberg's solo show at Something Special in Kingston, PA. Mary Lou's show is entirely collage - many beautiful pieces. Kiersten and I bought a piece - a scene of a late day sun shining on autumn colors. Check out Mary Lou's show through August 15th at Something Special, 23 West Walnut Street, Kingston, PA 18704.

The artist's reception for my solo show at Something Special went great this weekend! Saturday morning there was a flurry of activity as Kiersten and I packed up all of the pictures, tools, and show cards, and headed to the gallery to begin hanging the show. Hanging went quickly, and while we were working, the Something Special folks were busy cooking up all of the yummy appetizers for the evening. They took care of the details for the setting - florals, candles, music - and were the hosts, and we got all of the artwork hung, tags and cards. We had enough time to head back home and catch a bit of a rest before getting changed and coming back for the reception's opening at 5 pm. There was a great turnout! Thanks so much to everyone who supported the show - members of the Colored Pencil Society DC115, the Wyoming Valley Art League, Lizza's Studios, friends and family, and everyone at Something Special (the food, by the way, was fantastic, and the show set up was wonderfully warm and inviting). DC115 sent a beautiful floral arrangement for the show - blue flowers which went so well with the pieces. I even sold a piece during the opening - "Curve". I was able to snap some pictures before everyone came in (below), although I was too busy to actually snap any during. Kiersten's family snapped plenty during, though, so I should have some to post in Part 2.
Thanks again to everyone who came out to support me on the opening night!
The artist's reception was this weekend for the Something Special DC115 Member's Show. There was a fantastic turnout, with more than 100 people squishing into the shop. Something Special provided some tasty appetizers throughout the event, which were particularly yummy. The show hangs for the next 2 months. In addition to the member works, our self portrait project is also hanging - so you can put a face with the artist's name.
