Not much time to write, but time enough to share some new photos Laurie Perez took of the pieces for Second Seating that are complete or almost complete. The Clorox bottle chandelier looks ethereal and it's scale is fairly overwhelming, quite frankly. The Houston Dynamo soccer ball chandelier is unexpectedly wonderful - of course, I knew it would be wonderful. The banquet table with its patchwork tablecloth made with fabrics salvaged from Hurricane Ike flood waters is 10 x 14 feet BIG and gorgeously overflowing with a plethora of vintage objects and trash and treasure from the East End community.
Second Seating is four months out. Press kits have been assembled yesterday and today. Thank you, Kathie Easterly. They'll be in the mail tomorrow and totally done by Thursday. Then it's back to making art and checking with all the other artists who are producing beautiful stuff for this show.
