Steve’s show, Sediment and Sentiment | A Re:mapping Project, opened on Saturday at the ArtHouse Gallery in Sacramento. The event was a culmination of five years of work, most intensely over the past nine months. Our daughter, Kate, flew out from Chicago to help him hang the show (putting to use her Museum Curation/Art History degree from University of British Columbia) and our youngest, Alex, flew in from Oregon to join us. We were surprised by family and friends who traveled to share the time with us, and were bowled over by their outpouring of love and support. The gallery was packed with friends from all corners of our lives, and designers we’ve known for over 30 years, plus college friends, clients, cousins, neighbors, colleagues, partners, past employees…pretty much everyone we’ve ever known.
Leading up to the show, I had been making noises that it was weird to see the art that had been hanging out in the nooks and crannies of our home, taking up the spare rooms and hiding out under beds and in closets, on the gallery walls, just like real art. But it was abundantly clear that our friends and family were the real art, and that the reward was having a thriving design and art community, with both a history and a future together.
Here are a few photos of the week and the show.
