I just got home a short while ago from the opening of The Great Goblet Gala 2008 at Peter’s Valley in Layton, NJ. I don’t mind admitting I was quite nervous about the whole event. When Glenn and I arrived I took a deep breath and ascended the stairs to the gallery above the shop. There it was right in the middle of the room! The best part of the evening was that as you looked around the room, you couldn’t really “tell” that this was my first gallery piece. I felt like it really belonged…if that makes any sense.
Glenn and I sort of stood back as people came to look, so I could observe their reaction. I saw lots of smiles and heard lots of positive comments. I can’t tell you how good it made me feel!
The show will be on until the end of September, so I highly recommend you go and check out all the great goblets. The room was filled with wonderfully creative pieces! For more information on the show, click here.
