|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.
