Sunday was drop off day for the Imaginarium exhibition at Gamut Gallery. This show features the work of Brett Early and Kate Renee. Earlier in September, Cassie and Mark from Gamut came to my studio and checked out some of my work. They chose a few pieces they were interested in hosting in the space. I added a few more pieces and made a few new works. By the time I finished prepping all the works, framing and packing them up, I had about 40 works!
My Saturn was not big enough to drive everything to Gamut so I borrowed my mother’s van. I also enlisted the help of my sister Sarah from Sarah Johnson Designs (pictured) to help pack up the vehicle. She also helped unload all the works once we got to the gallery.
I layered my large 30″ X 40″ paintings in the back between a large stack of towels and blankets. The smaller works and other supplies I needed to bring were boxed. All the cute trolls I made are in the cardboard box.
Here is a sneak peak of the trolls! There will be 21 of them total. All custom made with different colors, hair styles, and gem belly buttons. People have been expressing a lot of excitement and interest in them already!
This Saturday November 3rd is the opening reception for Imaginarium at Gamut Gallery in downtown Minneapolis.
It begins at 7-10 PM! All are welcome to come; bring friends and family!
