GONE ! Like a Band of Gypsies in the Night
Since we had to be there to remove the exhibition and get the work done, a few lucky stragglers were able to wander through the take down. A tall, beautiful woman with grey curls, came and claimed Ice House; she really did not want to see the exhibition close.
By the time all the nails were removed from the walls, all the signage was retrieved for the artists and the trucks were loaded it was all of 6:00 o'clock in the evening. Don't think that an exhibition disappeared in such a competent haste is over, finished, done, packed, and shipped.
Now the real work has begun. I am alternating carriers. FedEx got outgoing packages yesterday as I went past there on the way to the photographer. The truck is now filling with packages for United Parcel Service. Tomorrow I get to sit and stitch in hospitals and doctors offices waiting for my husband's cataract surgery. Thursday another big truck load will go where ever it must to deliver packages to the shipper on my way to do two other errands in Tucson.
I'm letting you in on the behind the scenes work process. I'm also letting you know that I am not ignoring your work. All is safely under lock and key and well insured in my own workshop. Each will be delivered to the carrier as soon as it is packed. United States Post Office will be last. I will prepare shipments on line and phone the post office for pick up. It's still snow bird season; I cannot stand in line with numerous packages for hours on end.
I think the last of the work will go out on Friday. If there is any issue, I will contact an artist individually. I will be ignoring most of my email until I get through this week. Sent latte grande with an extra shot, please.
