I am full of numbers right now. Four (4) days left in the Adirondack Gives Campaign for Face to Face. One-hundred-eighty-five (185) portraits to frame. Eighty (80) are complete, glassed, taped, wired, identified, ready to be boxed up. Fifty-eight (58) are ready to put into the frame. That leaves forty-three (43) still to trim, clean glass, place the spacers that are 12 inches long each on the glass, seal up with tape on all four sides, then frame.
And that ain't all. I need to order boxes the right size to hold no more than ten (10) with spacers and foam so it can be picked up by me when it is time to bring it to the Library in Novemeber to hang in the Cantwell Room.
This project is like a sharp shooters gallery: as soon as one target is knocked down, a new one pops up.
|Wall of just a dozen|
The on-line campaign backers have contributed to part of the cost of framing. NYSCA has contributed about 20% of the cost for the project this year. There have been contributions from folks just stopping in the studio in Gabriels and others have contributed through Pendragon Theatre, the fiscal sponsor for the project so they will also receive a tax deduction.
I warned you this is boring.
But I am excited because I see this part of this project coming to head. The exhibit will be in November and everyone is invited to the opening. My vision is seeing all those faces on the wall looking back at all the faces in the room. Shivers.
Only Four Days Left in the Online Campaign. You can help. It is a win-win situation. You do have a choice of art gifts from the studio to choose from. Go the site and check it out. https://adirondackgives.org/campaigns/face-face-drawn-saranac-lake-lets-get-framed/
Did I say Thank You?
