Gallery Talk and Reception in Rockport, Texas

Last Saturday, May 16, was the Reception and Gallery Talk for my show Beauty of the Beast and multi-media artist Billy Keen's show Sacred Voices, at the Rockport Center for the Arts, in Rockport, Texas.
Billy has the Main Gallery,

and my work is showing in the Garden Gallery, the lovely room added in 2000 to this historic building.
Lisa Baer of Estelle Stair Gallery and Taylor Hendrix (Director of Operations at the Art Center) did a fabulous job hanging the shows. If you have the opportunity to visit the Center in person, it will be well worth it!

The Gallery Talk, hosted by Lisa, was a lot less stressful than I had feared (sitting in front of dozens of people and speaking!) thanks to Lisa's thoughtful conversational guidance. And I was lucky enough to loan my camera to a volunteer who caught the whole thing on video!

Here it is, after 3 days of editing in Windows Movie Maker. I added still shots of the shows at the end of the video talk, and found some beautiful music to accompany. Enjoy!
(I tried to update the thumbnail to a not-so-blurry shot, but it's stuck on this one! Two or three blurry moments in the whole thing, and it had to pick one for the thumbnail! Huh.)

Here are some more shots below...
