At the opening of an exhibit
Last summer during my sabbatical/retirement, I joined the Greenville Museum of Art, and I am glad I did. As a result, there have been several fun things I have been able to do, but I especially enjoyed this evening, the reception for the opening of Mary Whyte's exhibit Working South. There were forty or fifty marvelous watercolors of "vanishing blue-collar professions from across ten states in the American South." Making it even more interesting was the presence of several of her subjects. Here is the only photo I took, this sweet woman who was a celebrity tonight as she stood under her picture signing her page in the Working South book.
