Barron Storey Opening

Unfortunately I only caught the tail end of last night's Barron Storey opening, but by the time I walked in everyone was glowing.

The exhibit is a collection of 150 sketchbooks displayed on wall-length shelves. The viewers are invited to thumb through each and every explosive page. It's an extraordinarily intimate to look an artist's work and daily thoughts, and a touching pact of trust between the artist and the viewers. If you are planning to see the show, give yourself a few days -- one viewing is overwhelming.

A few more shots from the opening here.

Every single one of Barron's sketchbooks are overwhelming in every possible way.
I can not start to imagine what all of them together can do to you.

It is too bad I won't be able to see it.

Barron is the man. Great teacher, even better artist.
