The scene was much like this for most of the evening. Exciting!

Many thanks to all those who attended TEN last night. Attendance was estimated to be around 400 for the 3 hour event! Beyond our wildest dreams. About 2/3 of the art was sold. Here are some photos of the show just as the doors were opened...while there was still art on the walls.

June Grey finds the beauty of Maine so inspiring that it has been the focus of her paintings since her professional career began. Her works have been exhibited in galleries across the U.S., Canada and Tasmania. A member of the Miniature Painter, Sculptors and Gravers Society of Washington D.C., June likes to work small but not exclusively in miniature.

|73 Central Street, Downtown Bangor|
The space at 73 Central in downtown Bangor is being shaped into its momentary gallery self. There are people who think we’re a little nuts, this obsession with the details, the details over which, in reality, we could acknowledge we have little control. You know, it is an empty storefront! And come on, you also know we will only inhabit it for three hours. The space, filled up with 100 paintings on the walls hung in grids of three paintings across and three deep, will—if we have our way—be overflowing with people and no one will even notice the setup.
But we’re furiously putting together the CD playlist—some Etta James, for sure—ironing the tablecloth, gathering the twigs and branches for the flower arrangement, and marking off the righteously challenging grid on the wall that will enable us to hang these works the way they deserve.
It takes a village—and we’re grateful to live in one. We hope to see all the rest of you villagers at TEN’s opening and celebration and sale and closing on Thursday October 27 from 5 to 8 p.m.
