2008 Burton Art Show

Wow! What a day I had! With help from my tireless team, Molly and Laura, we finished up the last details of making tags for last minute entries, re-hanging work and creating a even program.  Getting artists to submit bios or statements has probably got to be THE hardest thing in putting together a show. Wow- like "pulling teeth from a wet fish!", to quote a colleague and fellow artist.

The show opened last night with a reception, at 80 Industrial, music, food, booze. I had to have at least one Magic Hat Circus Boy, before they were all gone. 

And what a successful night it was. Tons of people, coming into the building, checking out the employees art. I think a few pieces are even going to sell.

Marie Michelle, expertly put together the party. She's the best! She made working on this project such a joy!

There was also a Collaborative Artist Snowboard Exhibit that featured original art and the manufactured snowboards of over a half a dozen artists.  Local Burlington artist Mikey Welsh was on site to do a live painting that was auctioned off to benefit Burton's non-profit company Chill.  

It was a fantastic night. I wish I had taken more photos. Especially of the employee group show.
