Art + Wine pop-up gallery

Following Artruck, I was looking forward to my own pop-up gallery experience. I passed the morning observing dragonflies by the lake, and then made my way downtown to pick up Jason and his work, after which we began setting up at Paola’s Vinum.

I claimed a table while the group divvied up the display walls Jason loaned us, and we were pleased with how everything came together.

While our group has a diverse range of personalities, there was a cohesiveness to themes and painting styles.

Paola helped us ease the pre-show jitters by pouring Cava, to which we toasted.

We also sampled appetizers.

Wine is also available by the bottle.

Before long, people began perusing the show, and we enjoyed chatting with them about techniques, our art, and their artistic forays.

Piotr’s landscapes were perused by many.

Brett’s work had me reviewing the old masters at home.

Spring, copies after Rembrandt (Old Man with a Black Hat and Gorget), Sir Gerald Kelly (the blue lady-not sure of true title), Leonardo Da Vinci (La Belle Ferronière), and Vermeer (Painter in his Studio) by Brett Edenton

It was lovely to see Jason’s Triptych as a whole. He also has giclee prints available.

Christina’s portraits spanned from the historic to a more modern perspective.

Pearls were also represented in Jennifer’s work.

In spite of my nerves, the response to my work was positive, too, and a few more people are eager to try encaustics.

It truly was a lovely evening.
