Here are a few teaser photos from my camera, I will post more when the photographer and gallery send me their pictures. Close to 3oo people attended the opening at The Apartment Gallery, and I was very impressed with how they handled the overflow, considering the gallery size.  They graciously opened up the spa downstairs so art lovers could enjoy wine and spa treatments, while waiting for the crowd to turn over.

I’m expecting an email tomorrow that says, “They said I wasn’t on the guest list, Love Mom.”

We do our best.

In the contemporary world we put on various costumes, faces and disguises to mold ourselves for roles and positions in society, taming the unattainable or unmentionable desires hidden within our personal psyches.  Break this cycle of suppression and enter into the world of Carollyne Yardley in which everyday and every image is a witty insight into the characters beneath the surface!  Romancing the Squirrel  presents Yardley’s entire body of unique personalities  – her characters, our real selves, emerge from behind the safety screen of the mask, the ‘squirrely’ exterior.  Yardley’s signature style is a calculated and revolutionary approach to art historical tradition invigorating and enlivening the static entities of the past with the eccentric personalities of the present.  Ellen Manning, The Apartment Gallery
