“Loose buttons, cds &broken eye glasses,
Glued all together to sell to the masses,
“My old computer, can tabs & stretched springs,
These are a few of my favorite things…”
With the opening reception April 3, Huntington, and the surrounding area got a look into the creative mind of a unique artist. Gallery walls were bursting with people. At one point, it was almost impossible to move through the crowd. Person after person remarked, “I would not have thought you could use that” or “oh my, I know what that is!” only after staring at the piece for a full 15 minutes!
Robbie included a rather unique entry plaque, and piece of interactive art! The invitational sign also served as a photo-op for guests. Thus a mood of whimsy and fun started even before guests came through the door!
Gallery members and guests all got a real kick out of this. Even members of the press got involved! When we set up, I thought we might have been too enthusiastic on the refreshments, but the volume and appetite of the public put that worry to rest!

Robbie and the rest of The Renaissance Art Gallery worked right up to the moment guests started to come through the door, but it was worth the effort to have such a successful opening for this show.
