The Valentine Diana Fayt opening was splendid! We all had a great time and it was such a success. It looked better than I could have expected, each piece seemed to be echoed by a familiar ‘theme’ already present in the gallery. There are whales, gold plated and blackened bronze, birds in bronze, gold plated bird feet. Also, the ‘scrimshaw’ of her work is seen in my collection of replicated early American whale tooth scrimshaw. All together, a visual feast, my favorite so far for Modern Relics. I will be sad to see it come down, but am thrilled to know that Diana will continue having her work shown here so the beauty will be always present.
The icing on the cake this week has been the visit of my beautiful niece and sister, Cameron and Rebecca. They were able to be at my shop for the first time experiencing an opening. The choco
late truffles were quite a hit, and Cameron and Grace (12 & 13 years old) donned headbands with a big red heart as they served them on silver platters.
It’s been a busy week trying to balance work and family time. I am content knowing they are having a fabulous time but still feeling guilty that I am not able to be with them every moment.
Last evening I met with Dylan Sisson, the Pixar artist and long time client, now friend, who is launching his“Idle Hands’ creature doll and art exhibit at M R. This event will be quite a unique one for the gallery, a bit of a detour from the usual aesthetic. The cool thing is that it will involve a whole different art world that includes music, gaming, and geek tech at it’s very best. That is such a big part of the Bay Area scene and so it’s my turn to pay homage. It will bring out some big names in the industry so stay tuned!
My next blog will be about my jewelry journey with photos of some of my early pieces and the stories they tell.
Thanks for visiting…
