Paddy was MIA on Friday. He finally texted late Friday night just as I was heading home from the galleries. Paddy’s nine-year-old Great Dane has bone and lung cancer. Chemo will cost around $20k but there’s no guarantee it will cure the cancer. Paddy has decided to put the dog down. He’s was a complete wreck.
The Colorado Women in Abstraction show at the CVA is a something to see. It took four years to curate. The exhibit was scheduled to open a few weeks after the DAM’s Women of Abstract Expressionism so it would not steal any thunder from the DAM’s exhibit. The CVA was packed with a who’s who of the local art scene. There were a number of artists I had not heard of. I need to go back for a second look.
The rest of the weekend was rather lackluster. It was hot. I was lazy. I didn’t accomplish much. I managed to pull myself together on Sunday afternoon to meet Double A, and his mail-order husband from Ireland, who’s in town for two weeks. More on that later.
