reverse emporium exhibition opening

It's always a pretty good party for this toddler... A crafting table, live music, a warehouse full of treasures, tasty food, quite a small crowd with a few familiar faces. In the actual gallery/gift shop, he was a little "hands-on" as everything was interesting and lovely (and at eye-level), but quite gentle. And he mainly just wanted to play with the mannequins' belly buttons, which invited giggles from quite a few strangers who were browsing nearby.

I had just a few things in the exhibition this time. Gift bags (upcycled from picture books, art books, atlases, etc) and guitar picks (from credit cards, etc). It's quite exciting to see my own stuff on display, and to watch other shoppers notice them and inspect them.
