Artventures In Regina: Day 2
Barb and I drive in to the University of Regina this morning and I get my first view of the Fifth Parallel Gallery.
It is a fully student-funded and operated gallery and is one of the loveliest exhibition spaces I have experienced, both as an an exhibiting artist and as a member of the viewing public.
My morning is spent unpacking my work, which arrived a few days before I did via Canada Post Regular parcel delivery. All bodies accounted for and no damage to shipping boxes or work. The entire exhibit was packed into 3 boxes with a total footprint of about 10 cubic feet. Total cost = $86.28 (including insurance). There is definitely something to be said for working with light and flexible materials.
After unpacking, Barb and I play Tetris with plinths and decide where and how pieces will be displayed in the gallery. The rough installation is composed (painting plinths and lighting to be done tomorrow), and work that requires hanging is hung before we call it quits at the end of a 10 hour day.
