You’re invited to the reception of Islands II at Gallery 110, Seattle on Friday, March 6. The paintings will be exhibited until Saturday March 28, 2020, when I’ll be giving an artist talk titled Islands and Poetry, followed by a closing party 3-5PM.
I just returned from Seattle and Gallery 110 where I watched our Curator, George Brandt, work his magic hanging the paintings in Island Paintings II. George has hung literally hundreds of exhibitions over the years, and he takes several hours looking at each work, moving paintings from in front of one wall to another, and then back again. It is like watching a chess grandmaster. He seeks to group works that speak to each other: to pair up paintings that make each other stronger and more noticeable.
Then the installation committee gets to work measuring and hanging in the pattern and groupings that he has devised. Please see the installation views at https://www.haughton-art.ca/exhibitions/island-paintings-ii/installation-views-of-island-paintings-ii/
