Creative Costmos Opening


Last Saturday, August 8, was the opening for Creative Cosmos at the Chandler Gallery in Randolph. The gallery had scheduled Artist Talks at 4:30, and it was really a very good thing to hear the four artists who presented (myself, Jim Robinson, Cami Davis, and Bhakti Ziek, in that order) talk about their work. I really think this is something that galleries should always do at (or before) receptions. I understand that in many places in Europe and elsewhere in the world, an Opening is literally that -- someone (often an academic or critic) speaks about the work in a space outside the gallery, and then the doors to the exhibit are opened and people are allowed in to experience the work for the first time. What do you think?

Here's my piece in context, followed by Bhakti Ziek's installation:
