30 Birds in 30 Days: A Virtual Look

January 12, 2010

A look at the installation of the 30 Birds in 30 Days show.

Above: A view of the empty salon, showing the arrangement of the paintings. Not visible in this photograph: the artist bio and about the show signs, and a sign on the "evolution" of a sketch through painting into a jewelry piece (because I thought that would be fun for people to see). The lettering on the center wall space is my name and then the show title is in a script face below that.

For readers who are distant I'm posting this photo I took of my "30 Birds in 30 Days" show installment (click on the link for show details) at Foiled Again Salon. It's not the best photo, and I used only exisiting light, but it will give you an idea of the set up. 

It has been really exciting for me to see them hanging all together, chronologically, so that I can see the progression of my intention over the month. Best of all, one sold about 10 minutes after we finished hanging.

If you would like a closer peek at the individual paintings check out "Bird a Day Project" on RozWorks.com.

The show will be up through February 28 for non-virtual visitors.

    How interesting, an art show in a beauty salon! Do they do this all the time?
    If I go here to a salon with the idea of hanging art in their walls, they’d said: “What chu talking about?!”
    They would laugh me out of there.

    Are those acrylics? It looks great, Roz.

    Thanks Betty, That’s what I’m hoping! Three of the pigeons are actually mounted on a cherry board to sell as a set, but I think several others could be considered so. We’ll see.

    Thanks Katy, Carol, and donnamcm. It is fun to see them up together.

    Christina, yep this salon does art shows all the time. Check her website and in the flashing photos that go by you’ll see the walls change and especially see some cool silkscreen prints of dog silhouettes that were shown there early this year. The salon owner is herself an artist. And this part of town is very arty, filled with old warehouse and industrial buildings that are now filled with artist “lofts” and studios. There are art crawls (all the studios are open on certain evenings or weekends and people go from place to place) every month, with special events 2 or 3 times a year.

    The changing art in the salon, besides giving artists an opportunity to reach viewers, also creates a changing and dynamic environment for the patrons of the salon, and the stylists. I think it’s a brilliant idea.

    Christina if you talk to a salon in your area you should send them to Michelle’s salon website so they can see the photos! She also has utilized her space so there are walls suitable for hanging (the facing wall to the lettering is a wall of mirrors and “stations”). Michelle’s salon also won an award from Elle magazine as one of the top salons in the country!

    The openings also bring in the neighborhood and others and that’s good for the artists and the salon.

    Christina, yes those are acrylics on canvas and canvas board. You can read about that on my website at the project link. (I go on and on about it there.)

    Patricia, I’ll look and see if I have a decent scan of it. Otherwise I’ll have to wait until the show comes down and I have the piece again.

    Randi, thanks, the salon got painted just after the last show came down so I got really bright walls which also helps the colors pop. It’s awfully fun to paint in non-naturalistic colors!

    They look so good together and it must be rewarding to see one sell so quickly, Thanks for the daily inspiration.

    Congratulations! Looks like a nice display. Delores and I will get up there to Foiled Again to check it out. Probably won’t get a haircut, though.
