Getting ready for the "Art on the Wall at City Hall" exhibition

I have been getting ready for my solo exhibition at the City Hall of Snellville.  I began last fall preparing paintings for this exhibit.  It is a variety of pastels and encaustics that are a wide range of subject matter from landscapes, still lifes, even some animals and figures.  Originally I was suppose to have the month of March but in January I was asked to hang the show beginning February 1st if I wanted because someone had not been able to do their show.  I then decided that I would do my framed pastels for February and then hang my encaustics for the reception and the month of March since they weren't all framed at that point.  Everything worked out fine and now I am almost ready for the reception next week.  All of the encaustic artwork was hung yesterday and I'm pleased with how it looks.  The community room holds a lot of paintings (20-25).  The City has prepared the room for the hanging of the paintings with a first class hanging system.  Very easy to put up and take down paintings without any holes in the wall, it's wonderful!  Please come to the reception if you can, I'd love to see all of you.  The reception is Thursday, February 28, 2013 4:30 - 7:00 p.m. at Snellville City Hall.
