The exhibit came down yesterday. One of the last visitors was a Navy retiree who had his own fascinating stories to tell. It was really sweet to exchange stories of Navy life from our different perspectives, and he was very interested in the Greenland Diary and the artwork. Lucky me. This show has been full of these kind of stories. The best.
I experimented with different types of presentation in this outing. I wanted the glass to have a little more of its own air, breathing room. So several of the pieces were mounted on beautiful slabs of stone. Those were in turn placed on acrylic risers that I had fabricated by a local plastics company.
The response to this presentation was very positive. Five of the pieces sold, woo hoo! I will definitely use this method in the future.
