December 2012 Whimsy and Wanting, curator for artist Rusty Hatfield at The Foundry

Whimsy and Wanting opened on 12/7/2012 at The Foundry. Rusty Hatfield was our featured artist. Rusty has an amazing hand with the brush. We presented 10 paintings, 2 acrylic and 8 watercolor. His showed focused mainly on the female form.

The night was full of Christmas cheer, hugs, spirits and smiles. The gallery sold quite a few handmade ornaments by Kent Porterfield and Yvonne Cavanagh (Foundry members.) One of my Alley Cat prints sold as well.

Next door the original painting “Winter Time” was on display at Metro Galleries. The piece sold to the Bakersfield Californian Controller on Wednesday night at their staff Christmas party. Such a great surprise! I’m glad it found a new home.
