On Thursday, April 11, Hildur Ásgeirsdóttir Jónsson will install a major work at WBg.     During the past year, She has been working on a series of large paintings in partial preparation for a one-person exhibition at the Tang Museum at Skidmore College this Fall and a one-person show at the Reykjavik Art Museum in Iceland next year.  Two of these paintings were exhibited in the artist's exhibition at WBg last fall.  The painting that will be shown on April 11th is the 5th of 6 paintings.   It is similar in size to the other pieces in the series, about 10 x 14 feet.  There's a practical reason for the installation  -  the walls in the artist's studio are not large enough to hang the piece.  As each piece has been finished, she has been installing it at WBg for a day to see it and to take reference pictures.  We decided to invite patrons and friends of the gallery to see the piece as well.  On Thursday, April 11, the gallery will be open from 11 to 6.  The piece will be taken down first thing Friday morning.

Beer, wine and refreshments will be served.
