First Friday at Tennyson's Tap

Last night we went to the art exhibition at Tennyson's Tap, as well as checking out the local art on Tennyson Street in Denver. It was a strange feeling to have a piece of art hanging somewhere than in the closet of my art space, or in our living room at home.
I, unfortunately, forgot the camera, so all I had was the camera phone, in a poorly lit space, so the photos are not fabulous. Our friend, Will, who had come along as support, sold me out about 15 seconds after we arrived on site. I had gone to greet the curator of the show when I turned around to, "Her! There she is. She did it!" and a gentleman asking about my "barn" painting.
I was a bit shocked (and unprepared) to be asked questions about the painting, but I think I did okay, considering that I am always highly unsure of what to say about my work. I have to admit, it was pretty cool to see a painting of mine hanging up in a show though. I'm still trying to wrap my head around it all.

A live musician was playing while we were there, which definitely made the mood more lively, and also relaxed (which is great for me as I fear the typical gallery scene and its formalities). There were also some other interesting pieces to see, some of which I hadn't viewed prior to the show. It was definitely fun to check out the work of others as well. Overall, a good experience, and again, if anyone is in the Denver area, the exhibit will be up until mid-April, so I would highly recommend coming in to check it out.

Word verification is on, but I've turned off the moderation portion in an attempt to make it easier for you to know that your comment has indeed made it through. We'll see how this goes, but I'm hopeful that this will help out and I'll try my best to weed through and remove spammers comments. Additionally, I recommend copying comments before hitting publish as the "blogger comment eater" seems to continue his snacking.
