The Morning After


Hello

Today we are going to Muse about Studio 1608 and the present exhibition, Anatomy of Spirit.  If this is your first visit, welcome to Musings. If you have been here before, welcome back. Over time we are going to talk about many things: the past, the present, perhaps the future, travel, art, society and more. Wherever my musing takes me. I hope you will come along with me.

The Morning After

Last week I wrote about Anatomy of Spirit  the exhibition at Studio 1608 in West Palm Beach.  The opening was last night.  In case you missed it, let me tell you about it.

Studio 1608 is a two storey commercial space.  The second floor consists of studios for artists and photographers.  Most of the ground floor is normally leased, but when it is not it is often used for art exhibitions.  The space is available now which allowed for the current exhibition.

Monday through Wednesday before Thanksgiving the artists brought in their work and hung their displays.  There are about sixty exhibitors.  Here you can see examples of the spaces being set up.

This is my wall.  As you can see I am showing  work from three of my series:  the dress series, the manikin series and the aerial landscape series.

Several people commented that although the works were very different from each other they held together as a group.  The sculpture Bucking Bronco is just out of the foundry.

I picked it up last week.  People said it reminds them of work by Botero.  Hmm!

The opening was well attended and beautifully catered.  The food was supplied by Deliver Lean, a company that delivers quality meals to people.  Based on the food they supplied at the opening, I would say you should check them out if you have a need for home delivered meals.  Their web site is http://www.deliverlean.com/  and they can be contacted at 888.730.LEAN (5326).

Here you can see some of the action at the opening.

I saw people I haven’t seen in 15 years.  Great fun.  Among the guests were West Palm Beach Mayor Jeri Muoio and her husband.  Also seen were interior decorators Jennifer Garrigues and Lars Bolander and, from the world of art galleries, Armand Bolling from Rosenbaum Fine Arts.  I am certain there were others.

Part of the fun was the performance art designed to draw attention to the opening.  Debbie and Meg from Elemental Expressions Entertainment performed a fire dance out doors which drew attention from passers-by.
