After Peter Lewis painted 21 paintings in France, after having them all shipped back to NL. Countless hours to finish them and then my job starts... First to photograph them, design posters, evites, invites, the exhibition booklet and finally the gallery. Don't forget the advertising, social media, and food and wine! I find it hard to express the feeling that I get when the gallery walls are emptied and perfected awaiting their new treasures, the truck shows up full of newly framed art! It's exciting, and energizing. The gallery is pre planned for hanging what goes where however things usually get switched around a little in the end. The paintings are hung, carefully measured centres so all the pieces are hung perfectly, they are adjusted and straightened and then they are perfectly lit up so the paintings jump to life. Finishing details involve putting up the title tags and making the gallery sparkle. Stepping back and looking at the newly created exhibit is just brilliant and one of my favourite moments.
Now I hope everyone comes down to the gallery 5 Church Hill 630-930 pm for the easy part... having a glass of wine and hanging out with the artist while you are transported, this time to the beauty of the France landscape. Paris, Provence and Annecy. Simply beautiful!! http://artofpeterlewis.com/exhibitions.php?gid=46 Here is the link for the art. Enjoy!!
