Thanks Alamosa and the San Luis Valley for showing your support in such a tangible way by spending the evening with us, - and buying art.
I try not to have expectations about show openings in general- certainly, out of town shows where I might not know anyone. A home-town show though,
is a very different thing and my hope is always for a REALLY great party - period.
Last night's opening exceeded all of our hopes as so many friends, from every sphere packed out the long gallery in the Medical Center ARTium.
Mid way, we paused to enjoy an amazing panorama as the sun set over the San Juan mountains. The sun went down, lights came up and people enjoyed food and conversation late into the evening.
The Medical Center ARTrium is on the second floor and part of the route taken by doctor, nurses and many patients on their way into surgery or back to recovery. Even as we set up for the opening a large extended family had gathered to wait for one member who was having heart surgery. This ART space is a part of that world and it is especially gratifying when we hear from those people - how much they enjoy the paintings - PRICELESS.
The SLV Regional Medical Center also owns and shows original artwork by myself, Susan McCullough and David Montgomery, and many other valley artists - as part of their permanent collection.
- another reason why I love Alamosa. Thanks so much friends.
