Jim’s Reception: Hope For Tibet

Today is our first solo show featuring Jim McGill and his wonderful portraits of the Tibetan people timed to follow the Olympics. We hung the photos last night (which he refers to as black and white) but have more of a sepia feeling to me. We added some beautiful silk belts for color, brought back by Justin, from his recent visit to Tibet. We backed them with long, black fabric to make them “pop”. Jamie edge the black with some fabulous red Chinese silk I found because if I’d sewn it…well…whew… Kweli was such a help, not only did she get us dinner, but she kept a very tired Mike and myself from killing each other. I am meticulous so it’s easy to get frustrated 😉

Susan, the gallery’s Intern, stayed all day vacuuming, hanging the new T-shirts and setting up tables. She’s a smart, artistic young woman and she did a marvelous job.

Now just the small details before the big show. I hope to see those of you that can come out. I hope Jim has a great show and I wish him the best for success.
