Talking to strangers isn’t a skill of mine. Talking about art isn’t a skill of mine. Talking to people about my art? I can feel my throat tightening up right now.
My art show opening at the Basement Gallery is this Saturday from 4:30 pm – 9 pm. The gallery owner, a very sweet and accomplished woman, told me that I should be there at 4:30 and during the event she’ll be sending people over to talk to me.
I hope they’ll do most of the talking. My plan was to hang out by the buffet and eat and smile. Eating, smiling AND talking to strangers is just going to give me indigestion. One of my biggest fears is dropping a canapé on my shirt. But the biggest fear is that my temporary veneer will fall out after taking a bite off a crusty roll.
I’ll let you all know how it turns out.
