Really, the only lowlight of the opening was that I didn't get to say hi to everyone who came and there were a bunch of people (like Jane Royal!) who I really wanted to see but didn't even get to a quick hello. OK, another low light was when I tried to say hello to Kaitlin and I spilled her whole glass of wine. I actually spilled it into my pocket. It was as if I took the glass and poured it directly into my pocket. It was ridiculous.
Thanks to all who came, especially those who shlepped up from Phila. And Baltimore. And thanks to my Whitney friends who came, employed there past and present.
Frank Smigiel. Bon Voyage, my friend. And Margie Weinstein. I love those guys.
Many friends were there-
Libby Rosof. Roberta Fallon was up there before the opening. I love them both.
And to Silicon Gallery Printers. Rick and Kaitlin from Silicon representing!
