“Pinned.” Reception

Our reception was a powerful event with an unrepeatable atmosphere due to the art and the brave patrons that fought back roads to work their way past the tremendous emergency presence from the fire across the street.  We made the best of a tough situation, and Steve, Antoinette, and I were so pleased to see friends, art collectors and dealers visit our reception.  At “Pinned,” we had a wide range of work, and we were pleased to find a great number of people who asked many questions about our work and what it means to us.

We decided to add to the atmosphere by Inviting Grayson Brown to play our event.  Some of you may know him from David Fogel’s “X” events.  Some said that the rhythmic energy of the lights from multiple emergency response vehicles added to an environment where art and music mixed.

Ceci is an amazing artist, but beyond that she ads a wonderful feeling to any situation with her genuine excitement and sincerity about the things she loves. Maybe it’s the attention to detail, or something else, but down to the little things like insisting that a Martini should be mixed properly, and only be served in an actual glass, no plastic, it makes the mood!

Cheryl, Vinni (a.k.a Lavinia), and Lisa are an important force in our corner. It means so much to have their support. Every time we see them react to our events and activity it lets us know we’re doing something right. We thank them, and it really brought a smile to our faces to see how much they enjoyed Grayson’s music. It was exciting to see them dance, more people should have!

Barry and Michael Winger both grabbed my camera to document our event, so we must thank them both. Several of these images deserve their credit. It’s hard to say who shot what, so we thank them both equally.

With each exposure to the style of Live PA DJs, we get more and more excited about the creativity evolved in the process. There’s an improvisational effort to the music that keeps us listening. We look forward to hearing more of his work in the future.

We were sad to close the doors we had such a great crowd. They wanted to stay and enjoy. So instead we asked them to join us for dinner at Franklins. We had to hurry since the kitchen closed at 11pm!

One thought on ““Pinned.” Reception

  1. The show was excellent!! Pinning the pieces to the wall made the work look more raw and unfinished. It was a great idea!

    Steve and Bill Pabst got a lot of compliments on their collaborative effort–a grandfather clock stained a gorgeous shad of cherry, with mother boards in its gut. This piece was obviously not capable of being pinned to the wall. :)

    Grayson’s music was superb! I recommend going to see him perform live in the future.
