Photos and Reviews for Vanishment

Mary Gow's review of Vanishment was in the Arts Section this weekend, and so was Yvonne Daley's review of 70+: Gero-Transcendence.

Terry Allen took some great photos at the reception on April 4, some of which are below. Thank you, Terry!

Here's the only photo that's been taken so far of the final piece, 8 The End, 36 x 54", in which all hell has broken loose...

and a photo of a part of the crowd just before I spoke:

And, another look at me and my grandson (always a fave with me!), plus two good friends in the background:

And if receptions appeal to you, there are two more coming up for Vanishment: Friday, May 3 (during Art Walk) and Thursday, June 6 (during Art Fest). I bought more wine, so I'm ready...

Reception for Vanishment

Last night was the April 4 reception for Vanishment at the Supreme Court. It was great, with lots of people (Jason, the guard at the court building, clocked it with his clicker at 132, I think). People were looking, talking, and drinking wine -- all the things that are supposed to happen! A reception is no time to have a conversation in any depth, but it was wonderful to at least greet so many friends and supporters. Thank you all!

Mary Admasian took some photos (and so did Jack Rowell, below Mary's). Terry Allen was busy with her camera too, so I'm sure we'll see some of hers soon too!

 Here's David Schutz, State Curator Extraordinaire.

 And this gives a sense of the l-e-n-g-t-h of Digesting the Planet.

Jack Rowell took the next two photos:

Phil Godenschwager looking at the part of the endless wall...

I'm about to go up and give a very impromptu talk, hugging my grandson, with Mary Admasian and Peter Lind behind me (who did SO much to help this exhibit).

The show is up through June 28, open during state business hours. You've got plenty of time to see it.

Installation Day at the Supreme Court

With the invaluable help of David Schutz, Jack Zeilenga, Allyson Evans, and Nel Emlen, Vanishment appeared in all its glory! Sue Higby and Tuyen Nguyen helped me take three of the Digesting the Planet units out of SPA and load it into the state truck this morning. Thank you all.

Digesting the Planet looks great slithering down the back wall, and the piece in the middle spans the gap and holds it all together.

Rivers of Blood is on the opposite wall in the backspace.

The opening reception is this Thursday, April 4 from 4-7 PM.
