70+: Gero-Transcendence at Gallery 77 in Rutland

I've spent the last two days installing two installations at Gallery 77 in Rutland (77 Grove Street). This huge exhibit, with about 50 artists, will open on Saturday, April 6 from 2-4 PM, and will run until May 17. I'm very pleased with both installations!

Counting has four shelves (and the walls above), each containing a series of objects 1-10, so that each shelf holds 55 objects.

Here's the signage on the wall:

 The second installation is called Wheeled Chairs. It's installed in a very cool wedge-shaped room with a black wall on one side, and a pre-existing drawing of bones on The other. There's a glass  wall/ window that lets people see into the space. The four small chairs (which I showed previously at The Front in Montpelier), each suspended individually from the ceiling, all have bones incorporated in the piece in some way.  I decided to add four black chairs of various kinds, solidly on the floor, to contrast with the "flying" wheeled chairs.
