The photos are hung. Friday is day after tomorrow, and my first showing begins!
Here are a few photos of the gallery after we got everything set up. Many thanks to Pat Zarpentine for her help today, and encouragement all along.
Thanks also to Richmond Futch Jr. who was there today to help us and offer valuable suggestions and encouragement. Richmond is the director of the gallery and an accomplished artist many of you have seen and will see again.
