Where do I start? Last week was awesome! The preview party for the Warashina exhibit just so happened to fall on Friday the 13th, but luckily everything went by without a glitch. To my surprise I was volunteered to work the register at the gift shop. I had only used the register one time for someone who needed to pay admission and that one time I had to go and ask for help, so the thought of having to deal with more than one customer, large amounts of money and credit card numbers scared me to death, especially because I’d have to enter items in manually as opposed to just scanning them. I was afraid I’d end up entering the wrong amount for anything and just plain sabotaging the whole gift shop. Eventually, though, after the 4th or 5th transaction I got the hang of it and was extremely proud of myself for keeping every customer happy.
Saturday was the day the show went public and it was also the night of the art walk. Patti was nice enough to give everyone a “tour” of all her pieces and explained the meaning behind most of them which was very exciting. Little by little people started coming to the museum for the show, and again I worked the register without any fear this time. I had a few friends come by to see the show and of course the wine, and needless to say they loved it. Oh, and they liked the show too. Just kidding, they loved Patti’s work. Both nights went by so fast and they were so much fun. I can’t wait for the next art walk!
