Last Minute Meetup Valley Arts Opening 42nd Annual Juried Show

I know this is last minute because of a lot last minute in a hurry communication logistics  between Paramount Film Studios, myself and Valley Arts, but this thing happened out of some "karmic" or whatever blue mindset you want to believe in. I entered this painting in the Valley Arts juried show for this fall. It happens to be a quick study of Indigo Lake at evening; painted in watercolor back in September. After the the painting was accepted, Paramount Studios, looking for art work to be used in the Cleveland film shooting of "Jenny's Wedding" saw it,  and wanted permission to use it in their film. So, if you are out there on the East Side of town and have never been to the gallery or an opening, there will be lots of wine and finger food for Friday after work. The painting was supposed to be there for the opening, then not to be, then it is supposed to be now. Thanks to Carol Berkenall, gallery director and her suave connecting style communication skills, it will be. Now don't ask me what kind of pan they will give this piece in the film, but it will be there! This is about going to an opening and seeing some cool local art with an added interesting story behind the scenes.

    I won't be able to come but I am very impressed! I haven't been to an art museum or anything like that in years. Now that I'm thinking about it, I miss it. Now I'll have to figure out how to get out.

    Congratulations! Petra
