Inaugural Opening

The gallery just before we opened

Last night we had the opening of Federico, Theo and my shows and the grand opening of the gallery. It was a huge success. There were hundreds of people there last night. I was so busy answering questions about my photos that I did not have time to take many photos (I’ll be uploading a gallery of photos later). Everyone loved the space; it looked fantastic as you can see in the photo above. We accomplished what we wanted to, which was to show what a great space we have created for art in San Cristóbal. Now the hard work starts; finding artists, and finding buyers.

Patio

Here’s a view of the patio I took yesterday from just inside the entrance. Just out of site below the frame is the fountain/sculpture that Federico is working on. It connects to the low wall that curves off to the left. The building in the back has Gallery #1, and as you can see it still needs quite a bit of work, although, most of the front wall had been repaired by the end of today. The building on the right has Gallery #2 and Gallery #3. This is the building we are concentrating on getting ready for the October opening, along with the patio itself, a small cafe in the back patio and the portales of Gallery 1.

The garden of the patio has changed a lot; just a couple of weeks ago it looked like a jungle. The area in the foreground will be a tea garden, with fresh teas grown there for the small café that will be in the back patio. The roses are almost done blooming, and when they are we will trim them back; something that hasn’t been done in a long time. The poso at the far right will be redesigned to be more elegant (couldn’t really be made to look less elegant). Federico is working on a design for that now. The three columns on the building to the right (Galleries #2 &#3) were finished today and I started working on the three square columns on the building on the left (Gallery #1).

I’ll try to post a picture of the patio each week until it is finished so that you can see the progress.

Columns

I’ve been scrapping the paint off of the three turned columns in front of gallery #1 for a couple of hours a day for over a week now. There were at least five layers of paint: brown on top, then blue, green, brown and red (and maybe a white layer under that). I used a paint scraper, steel brush, belt sander and paint remover. It was a real pain in the neck, but I think the results are worth it. Today I put the linseed oil finish on the first column that I finished. You can see above that I was unable to remove all of the paint, especially the bright green layer, which got into every nook and cranny. The photo above is a particularly bad section with lots of green; overall it looks good. From across the patio the green is hardly noticeable and it will gradually flake off and let the wood show through. The columns are pine, probably what’s called locally ocote (a kind of pitch pine).

Here’s a shot of the top of the column, which looks much better:
