I'M READY FOR MY CLOSE UP!

50/50 INSTALLATION

50/50 CARTOON FOR NAIL PLACEMENT

50/50 INSTALLATION WITH MY ASSISTANT AND ME!
It was a gorgeous day, so Jerry and I decided to drive west over the mountain to Half Moon Bay and have lunch before we headed up the coast to Pacifica to the Sanchez Art Center.  When we arrived, I drew a number out of a basket to determine where I would be in the art center.  It turned out to be in the central hall of the main building.  I was happy with that space.  They handed you a cup with nails in it and some wall putty to secure the bottom of each panel to the wall.  We brought the hammer and a level.  There were several people walking around giving guidance, suggestions and help where needed.  I really appreciated my husband helping me with this, especially the top row which would have required a step stool for me.  I was a little unhappy with the lighting but was told they don't set the lighting until after the entire show is up.  There are two more days available for artists to bring their work.  I was going to use the first photo in my blurb book but I realize there is a piece of blue tape that has to be removed.  I think I will reprint my bio with a bigger font size because it is up high and it is too difficult to read the way it is.  I can switch it out right before the show.  I am happy with the final effect and can't wait for opening night.   It should be fabulous with everyone's work up.  I hope some of you can make it to the show.

This looks as stunning on the wall as I thought it would, Myrna. Really beautiful. I so wish I could see the show because the way each artists display is hung is so compelling.

How wonderful Myrna! I love the way you and Jerry planned the hanging. I tried to hang small pieces once and never thought of using a template. Thanks for the tip and your work is fantastic as usual.
