This is the press release I am preparing for the opening reception of the Spring show.

I know all you artists enter these shows, and remark on all the work you do to get ready for them. I also read how disappointed you are sometimes when how you and your work fair and are treated.

But I have to wonder if you have any idea how difficult it is to pull off one of these shows?

I have been working since last December on this, and frankly, I should have started sooner, and done more! The photo shows just two walls, and we have six for this show. I did not hang this show myself, two other members of the gallery did so, but all of us worked flat out to bring this show together.
From the early planning through this weekends event, putting on an quality art show is difficult, but so rewarding.


  1. Looks like it is going to be a great show. Wish I was closer to WV. Good luck.

  2. I hope so. Still contacting the press. Good coverage can make or break a show.

    But the work is very good!
