Last night was the first Friday in November and was full of exciting art openings and shows!
My first ever solo show, 'Excerpts from Europe' opened at Vining Gallery from 6-9pm. The show featured 81 original pieces that I created from my travels to London, Rome, Florence, Venice, Bergamo, and Verona this past May with my sister, Alix.
It was a wonderful evening and a successful show! Some who came were dear friends and family, others were newcomers I met for the first time. On the opening night, we sold 27 pieces, which was so humbling and exciting. It was an honor to share these places and experiences with others - to bring Europe to people here in Indiana. I loved hearing how different pieces resonated with people and which cities people most loved.
It was an immense effort to bring everything together, but with great help and generosity from Justin Vining and my Mom, both of whom spent hours helping frame, arrange, and hang countless pieces. I couldn't have done it without them.
Thank you to everyone who came! It was truly an unforgettable experience, and I feel overwhelmed with gratitude from your love and support.
