A friend traveling internationally spotted this at BWI Baltimore Washington International Airport. They are getting the next show ready for the opening reception, which will take place sometime in mid July. I am so excited! Here's the backstory.
More than two years ago I answered a call for entry for a new gallery space at our local airport. It was open to local artists as a way to highlight creative people in the area. Hearing that my work had been chosen out of 500+ entries is something I will never forget! There were to be 4 consecutive shows of 7 pieces each, which would hang for about 6 months, so this piece is in the last show. The sizes of the works would be enlarged to either 8' x 8' or 8' x 12'. Yes, that's FEET! The original size of this piece is 11" x 14" and the photo above shows it as 8 feet square (there is some cropping of the original image). Some have asked me how it could be so large without losing definition, well, the .tif file is 151 megs! Huge!
An opening reception is being planned and although not definite yet, I have heard it will be July 17, 2018. The previous show opened at 3 pm. I will have more definitive information as time goes on, but I want to start getting it out now. The reception will be open to anyone who wants to come. You will have to register so they will have a head count. They will pay your parking fee and have some food. I went to three previous openings so I know that you will have to go through security to get to the gallery. Last time I was prepared: all I had on me was my car key, my photo ID, and my telephone. Airport employees will take us through security so the gallery can be viewed. It's actually fun and very interesting. I hope some of you will be able to make it.
