As you may know, I belong to an artist group called The WeHa Artists Emporium. The founder of the group, a lovely artist and friend, Stefanie Marco, is excellent at getting venues for us to have group shows. Often times, it is a venue she has shown at before and she is extremely generous to share these spaces with members of the group.
Sunday morning, we hung out new show - Wind and Water - at a Hartford restaurant called Bin228.
Artists had their own spaces around the restaurant, but we all shared a big wall to hang the "show." So, for the "show" you had to have a wind and/or water themed art, but for your own space you could hang anything.
(Below) Here's the group of participating artists in front of the group wall (which hadn't been fully hung yet.) AJ Masthay, Stefanie Marco, Hannah Jackson, me, Phyllis Meredith, and David Davis Wilson.
Here's Stefanie, her husband & art serpa Carl, and David figuring out where things should go. This is actually very difficult when you have a big space and tons of art but no place to lay things out.
Stefanie hangs some of her work in her space.
And here I am up against the show wall. Pieces that are mine: Watercolor horses in the top left, Koi fish just behind my head, and a sailor and mermaid (in two frames) bottom left.
Big thanks to Stefanie and to bin228 to having us. If you're in the Hartford area, bin228 is more of a lunch place that caters to the working crowd and to anyone who just saw a show at teh Hartford Stage. The food is amazing! Eat there! And if you eat there in the next 2 months, you can see some awesome art. :)
Thanks so much for stopping in!
