Doug and I drove to Dallas on a recent Friday for our dear friend George C. Hetterich's reception for his one man art show at Artists Showplace in Richardson, Texas. Actually, the Artists Showplace is an artist co-op because many artists were exhibiting that evening. It is located in Spanish Village at the southwest corner of Coit & Arapaho.
George had over fifty works on exhibit and they were everything from acrylics to oils to watercolor and then some. He has amazing talent in many mediums and subjects. His lovely wife, Geri, was also there and we enjoyed visiting with her as well. We all belonged to the same dance club some years ago when Doug and I lived in Dallas, Texas. George is a retired Industrial Engineer formerly with Texas Instruments.
Also in attendance were their son and wife with their ten month old twin boys. In the photo of them below, just to her left, you can catch sight of the water color we purchased of Japanese Maples painted on Unryu paper made from mulberry, considered a type of rice paper. The frame is yellow and bright green. We have another one of George's pieces purchased some years ago (an oil) at another reception and showing.
Delicious hors d' oeuvres and wine were served and a great combo played jive and golden oldies as we walked through perusing all of the displayed art. I knew when we drove that far for this showing that we would come home with one of George's pieces and we are both very pleased with our selection. Congratulations on a successful exhibit, George!
This is all I have to say for now.
