Group Show Opening Reception

Last night went very well. The reception for the Group show, Faces, at the Sawtooth Center's Davis Gallery, I am currently in, was really well attended. I didn't even get a chance to take a few photos at the reception until the end of the evening when the crowd had thinned down. A good friend of mine Dave W., took some photos of me with my work and name marquee on the wall.

Not all of the 7 artists in the show knew each other. So it was really wonderful to acquaint myself with new artists, and also ones I know well, or have not seen in 20+ years.

There were lots of questions on my varied techniques and discussion on the concept of working with re-informing the art canon with women artists. Art Gallery etiquette wise, I was a little aghast with a few people wanting and finding them touching my work. Perhaps it is a compliment, but I am surprised people do not know any better.

I also brought a homemade batch of pizzelles, Italian cookies traditional to my family's celebrations, to the reception. They were also a hit. One guest even asked me if I had a restaurant, that they would head over there right then, if I had one. I thought that was kind of funny, but glad these were enjoyed.

I added photos to the FACES exhibit album, which can be viewed at:


  1. Hi Betti,

    I stumbled upon your blog awhile ago by accident, and am so glad I did! Your art is a collect treasure! I have listed you as a one of my favorite blogs on my own blog. You can find it at

    It is also gratifying to see your work in "re-informing the art canon with women artists." That is way overdue. Thanks for that.


  2. Actually, meant to write "...collective treasure..." above. :>))
