This weekend is going to be very full, so if you want an appointment this weekend, please schedule sooner rather than later.
On Saturday, we will be holding an "old LRS style" show at the Spa, as well as the Upper Studio. At 4pm, December 6th, we will close down the spa to the public. Later in the evening, we will be opening the spa as part of the festivities for the party. If you would like to make reservations for the party, please call Kerry at (206) 328-4758 and she can help you with that or any other questions you may have.
On Sunday, December 7th, the Spa will be closed for appointments, but open to the public as part of Jeff Hengst's Art Show.
This will be a special event for me. I have had many art shows (ironically fewer since I started LRS) but this will be the first time in a very long time that the show will be arranged around a social/political purpose rather than either a sale or a presentation of recent work. For now, all I will say is that the theme will be around relationships and suffering change.
The show will be from 1PM until 9 or so in the evening and will occupy all of our spaces. The Spa will function as the kind of "Museum Gift Shop" and will be the only space set up with an orientation towards selling things. It will close at 6pm in preparation for Men's Night at the spa. The other spaces will feature works that develop the theme. Obviously I am very excited about this opportunity to see my work arranged and presented for this purpose.
If you are interested in Jeff's paintings, this is a great opportunity to see a majority of his works om display. Those of you who have been in the spa, and seen how massive his collection is, can guess that this doesn't happen very often.
