Cross MacKenzie Show Installation Pics

I installed my show of new striped paintings/sculptures at the Cross MacKenzie Gallery in Georgetown (Washington, DC) on November 11. The show has been extended one week, now being on view until December 15. Originally, the plan was to install eight pieces so I brought twelve to give the gallery a selection of work to choose from but, fortuitously, we were able to hang all of them. Though it is difficult to see, we installed four pieces in the front window, including three of the one-sided paintings.

Though we hadn't originally planned on showing my canoe, the gallery director found images on my Facebook page and asked me to bring it. This canoe is absolutely not for sale but I agreed to let the gallery negotiate a commission one. I love the idea of it being considered a work of art because I built it with that idea in mind. I also agree with the gallery that it gives the viewer a clearer understanding of my art.
Even though we hung more pieces than we planned, I am happy with how much space they have, I don't feel they crowd one-another at all.

I hope you get/got the chance to see the show, the work really is much better in person. Additionally, the gallery has agreed to offer my bumper stickers with the same conditions that I do. I left some of my last three designs (#28, #29, and #30), so if you do stop in, you would have the chance to acquire at least one of my pieces for free.
