Pix from the Bing Opening

On Saturday night, February 11th, the Bing Arts Center hosted an opening reception for my show, GEOMETRIC BRICOLAGE: Found Materials Transformed. Here are some pictures from the event that are just casual shots of people taken by my wonderful wife and art assistant, Bonnie Caldwell. We have yet to take installation shots of the work, but those are coming - soon, I hope. (click on the images to enlarge)

I present it all to you (in front of "Thinking L.D.")

Talking to Brian Hale, Executive Director of the Bing Arts Center

Joanne Mattera taking a look at "Blues for Etta" in the lobby

Capturing details

In the West Gallery with "As Sweet As Honey," "Dark Companion," "Black Sun"
and "Once Upon a Time" - plus Joanne of course.

What visitors are NEVER supposed to do - LoLo touching "As Sweet As Honey"

Viewing three pieces from the Iconic Books series

LoLo's sister, Nancy, in the same gallery with "The Blue Flower"

Binnie with Brian Hale's wife, Deanna, and one of Bonnie's lovely fruit trays

Big decisions at another food table

In the East Gallery with "Bandito" and two of the deconstructed book pieces

Joanne with her new giant brush and me with my flowers from the generous gifter - Binster
