There was a wonderful opening at Hand Artes Gallery here in Truchas this past Saturday (see previous post Disparate Pieces). The subject of the show was the nude and its title, “Nude Year 2011: Voices of the Body,” expressed very well the great mix of art from several local artists including Anna Karin, Terry Gates, Alberto Castagna, Pierre Toutain-Dorbec and Trish Booth Pieterse to name a few. This is just one example of the rich and artful life we live up here on the High Road, seemingly in the middle of nowhere, but actually in the middle of it all. The opening was very well attended and I offer, here, some photos for those of you who were unable to be there and as reminiscences for those of us who were. Thank you, Brian Flowers (see previous post Art For the Village), for curating such a splendid show!
Love to you all,
