The show is hung and it looks great. The staff at Boise State Public Radio are happy to have art back on the walls, and it always feels wonderful to have them tell us things like “I know I say this every time, but this is the best show yet!”
Sue Latta and I spent an entire day getting it up on the walls. No surprise there, 67 pieces is the biggest show we’ve hung so far.
Sue is great to work with because she brings that fresh perspective I was talking about on the 11th to the process.
She’ll tweak what I’ve laid out just enough to tighten things up. She’s like that pinch of salt or splash of lemon juice that you didn’t know you needed in the soup, but once it’s added it makes all the difference. Plus she can do ridiculous math. In her head.
Mike’s and my pieces ended up side by side. I had not placed them together being wary of the “Mike and Melissa Show” accusations, but Sue didn’t give a rip about that, and I agree that wall is better for her rearrangement.
Next up, the Opening on the 13th. It should be quite the crowd with 67 artists and their entourages. Oh, and it’s supposed to snow!

It did NOT snow fortunately, and we had a great turnout. As often happens, I totally forgot to take pictures at the Opening itself, but luckily Mike took a few and here are two including one of me with my new haircut. Yes, it’s true. I couldn’t stand it any longer.
