The art opening for the Wild Thing exhibit curated by Ira Wolk at the Cliff Lede Vineyard Gallery was wonderful. Alex and I arrived at 5 pm. It was a glorious afternoon, balmy and very pleasant. 
The bijoux winery gallery is located to the side of the vineyard's tasting room in a beautiful garden. We were offered glasses of champagne and Dean & Deluca appetizers (yummy).
Ira greeted us and took us around the show which is spectacular. It is beautifully installed, a  joy to see, and very classy. 
The opening was  very well attended and the overflow of guests spilled out onto the Winery's patio to enjoy the evening. Ira, Barbra and Ruth were gracious hosts and the evening was delightful

 We left after 7pm and headed over to a little french Bistro in Yountville for an 
excellent dinner. If you're up that way please go and see the exhibit. Its up until September.

I just spent an exhausting 5 days hanging the Marin Fine Art Exhibit at the County Fair, we hung and placed over 750 pieces. Some of that time was spent judging the Junior Ceramics and also creating the Carbon Cube in the Green Exhibit. It was exhausting but wonderful. So many people are involved working so hard, it was an honor to be a part of it all. I had three pieces juried into the Fine Art Show. One large sculpture I entered into the Creatures and Models got a First Place. This exhibit is created by Industrial Light and Magic, its great and something I always participate in.
But by far the most exciting news was that our garden compost won not only First Prize but Best of Show!!! Perhaps Fine Art is over with and the money to be made is in garden waste! after all they're getting rid of art in schools and building worm bins. Pity they can't do both. I love doing my art and I love my composting too. And to top it all THE FORCE IS WITH ME.
