Despite some last minute obstacles (some lighting issues, cube stability, etc.) we were able to finish the piece and have it project all the drawings onto the wall. Brittney’s last minute addition of the blackout curtains was the perfect finishing touch in creating an atomosphere for our space.
In the end, I think the gallery opening went really well. All the groups had excellent projects that really explored the idea of “Drawing into Space.” It was interesting having a panel discussion, and getting to watch other people interact with the work that we had spent so long making was incredibly rewarding. As this was my first major gallery opening/installation exhibition, I really value the experience and hope it is something I will get to do again in the future… after a rest period first.
