A panoramic view of the Ron Collin's gallery space at MarinMOCA. This is the first room you enter into the building. Towards the left are more spaces for the other artists. During our gallery visit, it was a first come first choice and out of the five spaces, none of the artists, including myself fought for this area. Not that the space was bad, but I think it was more of an issue for how the artists works compliment with the area. Since everyone was fighting for the second and third space, I thought it would be easier for everyone to just go with this one. Turns out, my work fits the area nicely.
Lee, a gallery volunteer for many years helped with installing. We got to install all of the big pieces except two. They're still deciding where to put the decals for the show, so Lee will finish up on Tuesday and everything should be ready for the opening on Saturday.
My only issue with the space are the fountains on the left. It really disrupts the flow of things. But besides that, I think the whole area cohabits well with my work. The center wall will introduce Flicker, one of my first paintings when I was starting to work with oils a couple years back. This piece launched my interest in how my work looks today. Title of the show will be placed above it.
Celebratory pizza socks. Classic pepperoni. oh yes.
See ya on Wednesday for the weekly feature!
