In August, I got some news that nearly caused me to implode with excitement. One of my pieces – a micromosaic named “Delphine” – was accepted into a show in Brooklyn, NY.
I’ve viewed New York – as I’m sure many other artists have – as one of the ultimate hopes of a place to get into. Having Site:Brooklyn accept my piece was one of my biggest highlights this year. Thankfully I didn’t implode and was able to enjoy the moment. 😀
Even more good luck came my way when I found out the show opening for Small and Smaller was just 2 days after OneZeroOne in Rhode Island. This meant we were able to attend the OneZeroOne opening and then 2 days later (and 2 states away) pop over to NY and attend Small and Smaller as well! It made for a super great extra long weekend.
The show opening at Site:Brooklyn was terribly exciting. The gallery is enormous and they were actually having openings of 3 different shows the same night. To say it was packed would be an understatement!Delphine was among some amazing company in this show. All of the pieces in Small and Smaller were fantastic. It is always so cool to see what folks do in limited space. Again I was lucky, many of the artists were in attendance and I met some wonderful new people whom I traded cards with and look forward to following online!
We spent a couple days after the show exploring the Williamsburg neighbourhood of Brooklyn, eating good food, watching murals being painted. It was quite fun for us as neither the husband nor myself had been in this area of NY before.
It really was overwhelming a bit…So excited to have gotten in this show, just truly amazing to get to go to NY and see my piece in a Brooklyn gallery. Hopefully they’ll be more opportunities like this in the future, and maybe…one day…a Manhattan gallery. Gosh that would be a dream – but I’m throwing it out there – you have to ask the universe for what you’d like to have in order to manifest it, right?
Here’s some pics from the show and a bit of around Williamsburg. The show is up till October 20 – at Site:Brooklyn Gallery 165 7th St, Brooklyn, NY. If you’re in the area stop by and check it out along with 2 other great shows! 😀
