Exhibition opening

My exhibition is now open!  The Private View was on Friday evening and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves, particularly our little monsters.  They were allowed to stay up late and eat crisps.  Heaven!
This is the view you are meant to see of exhibition previews: lots of people looking at the work in an interested fashion.  However, I thought you may prefer to see what the children thought of it:
The installation of knit and projection made a great room to run around in when it wasn't too busy...
They were fascinated at watching a video with me on it - I still haven't plucked up the courage to watch it!
However, my work must have inspired them as there were several pictures of the ground on the camera.  All three of them took pictures, including the two year old for the first time:
This is her parents at the end of the evening before she stuck her fingers on the lens. 
I'm really pleased with how it all went and I even sold a couple of pieces.  It has been rather strange today as I haven't worked for the first time in ages.  It was nice to spend time with the family, but I also started to feel that I will have to start participating with the housework etc...  So I better come up with some other work to do soon!

Glad the exhibition is a success. Any chance of some closer pics of the 37 pieces (or at least some of them!)
Housework sound like a definite motivator for a new project.

It would be great to see some close-up pics, although you have some super budding photographers there Gillian, they obviously like to leave something to the imagination!
Congratulations on a very successful opening night, and it's great that you had some sales too.
