I just couldn’t wait, and the Housatonic Museum gallery was nearby, so I popped in yesterday right after the Flower (Re)Power show was hung. All I really wanted to see was Charla Boteler’s display. I quickly snapped this photo on my camera phone and went on my way.
I’m impressed that not only did Charla’s stackings get accepted (the backstory is here) but they have placed her in a center wall, probably the most prominent position in the Burt Chernow Galleries.
The Best in Show wins $500. Now I’m thinking Charla (and her daughter Alison) are real contenders!
Also, I think I’ll finally get to meet Bridgeport’s new arts czar.
This is all 5-7 p.m. tomorrow (Thursday, June 17).
