Flashback Friday= opening night: Grimm Needle

Art portfolio- my work

The Grimm Needle exhibition at Fried Contemporary Gallery close tomorrow.

It is with fond memories that I revisit the opening night on this “Flashback Friday”….


During the evening everyone who attended the opening were asked to write their names and telephone numbers on a piece of paper and put it in one of Johan Thom’s hats. Later in the evening Mika Thom the owner of the gallery drew one name from that hat…


The one’s whose name were drawn received this piece below, which I especially made for this event (in this case Sarel Petrus received it- who is a fellow artist whom I have never met until that evening and whose solo exhibition is up next at this gallery!)

Thank you to friends, colleagues and everyone who visited my exhibition (in the flesh or via the web) and to the patrons who are taking some work home with them.  To those of you (you know who you are) who helped, listened, talked, supported and pampered me before and after the show…a heartfelt thank you.
