A fabulous, schmoozy time on Second Saturday in Mendocino last night, with a passle of gallery openings and people traipsing all over the place reveling in art, sipping wine and running into everybody they knew in the village. We love that about living up here: community trumps everything and you have to build in extra time for all the hugging on the sidewalks.
My Baby’s Love Letters, the new project I’ve been telling you about of these big, framed initials that are made up entirely of line after line of LoveLOVELove, took up the whole thirty-foot wall on the east side of the front door at the Highlight Gallery and I had a blast greeting visitors and telling them about the twenty-six Love Letters. It was a feat to get all those frames straight but Sharon Peterson and I did it together like the Two Stooges and they look dramatic and chic, as you can see. We sold some too!!!!
The Highlight Gallery is brimming over with gorgeous woodwork, paintings, sculpture, jewelry, photography, glass, pottery, weaving and more. A terrific showplace for local artists, and certainly an honor for me to have my installation there for this month. I hope you will stop in and get in on some of that love-emitting wall of Love, or go to their website to see a condensed version of all they have there. It’s amazing and gorgeous, and the view of Mendocino Bay from the front window is worth the trip from anywhere. I so enjoyed working with Sharon, Adrienne, Judy and Joanie in that peaceful, beauty-filled place.
My Baby’s Love Letters are wonderful gifts for so many occasions: birth days, birthdays, baby showers, christenings and brises, bar and bat mitzvahs, weddings and newlyweds, anniversaries, client gifts, Xmas and Chanukah, girlfriend presents, or just a sweet way of telling somebody you are mad about him or her. You can learn more about My Baby’s Love Letters in previous blog posts and on the new website that we got up just in time for the exhibit!
