Just delivered my chair for this event to the Andrew and Laura McCain Gallery in Florenceville. It takes place February 15 and there will be six chairs from the Emerge Artists Collective in Fredericton. I think this is really cool…that Fredericton artists get together with Florenceville artists to keep the gears high for the arts in Florenceville. That’s where the proceeds will be going…and they couldn’t be going to a better gallery anywhere.
My fellow Emerge member and studio partner, Dana O’Regan had a show there about this time last year and, honestly, I really didn’t expect the level of excellence I saw in this gallery. It’s small, but beautifully lighted and laid out. And the staff are amazing. I just put them through their steps, taking about 80 pics of the chairs that are going into this exhibit and not one of them threw a heavy object at my head. I’m not used to this much civility. This is why my head is so bumpy. But not today. Thank you Victoria and Kathryn.
This is going to be a silent auction of each of the chairs, I think about 20 in all. The chairs will be on display starting February 10. For updates on this go to here. I’ll be posting more pics of the chairs later. In the meantime…here’ my chair.
Like, what our troops have experienced, that no human being should have to experience, but it happens. And maybe we should do more for these people who made roads safe, brought medical supplies to people in need of them and brought a lot more respect for Canada than most other nations did.
