Nazareth Art Opening!

Had a blast today setting up my mosaic piece for the show at Nazareth College. It has over 60 pieces total, all of them different kinds. Some framed, some unframed, some of my more traditional landscapes mixed in with the newer text pieces, something for everyone! I don't want to give away too much of the  final piece until after the opening, so here is one shot right at the beginning of set up.

I planned it out first on the floor, then slowly put up one at a time making sure they were all set up just right. Surprisingly enough it only took about three hours to put them all up, I thought I would be in for the long haul for sure.

Here is a little close up of one of my more favorite sections after I had it almost finished. This trio is definitely one piece that stands out from the group. The bright orange pieces stay towards the center of the mosaic and make it look like a vague sun setting over a thin strip of land. I will have more pictures after the opening! If you want to see it finished though, all of the info is on the poster. Friday from 5 to 7! Hope to see some familiar faces! Weeee
