For all you who didn't attend paul's big opening - probably only two of you - here are some pictures of the party and...oh, yes...art! I think that everyone in the metro detroit area made it out to the show and to support the new gallery. What a great night!! I am so happy to have another great space to see detroit and national (international?) work - all in one space. Paul knows his stuff and I expect big things in this space. I have never been to an opening in michigan that you actually had to stand in line to enter!
peter williams - watercolors that are collages of detroit and personal memories all mixed and layered into one painting.

This one (the press card image) is my favorite of peter's works.
Did I mention it was crowded?
While waiting in line to head into the show, the stairway contained the art of Object Orange - the group who paints boarded up, falling down houses in the detroit area bright orange.
An interesting extension room to paul's gallery features a small selection of aritsts in his inventory. It is a nice side to the solo show and hopefully will be utilized as an installation room or at least be open for some different uses of space. I can already picture local artists having some fun in this tiny room!
