What a difference...

3 weeks makes. When I started planning the Gibbes Museum of Art's opening reception for the exhibition, Landscapes of Slavery: The Plantation in American Art, I had a dainty little idea about a pretty party. Then, seeing Angela Mack's ideas for designing her exhibition, I have almost done a 180°. See, I've realized that I love using color, lots of it, and that's exactly what Angela has done as well, so I decided to bring the colors of the exhibition down to the party.

The tents will be draped in the same colors as the scrims in the exhibition, deep jewel tones of red, purple, green, and orange. It's crossed my mind that this may end up looking a bit like a circus tent, but it's past the point of no return, now... In any case it will be full of color and light. With the Charlton Singleton Trio playing, it's sure to be a sweet southern evening.

BUY TICKETS TO THE PARTY! Call Wendi at 843-722-2706 x. 22, and tell them Sarah sent you.
