1026 Tranquilla is amazing!

story and photos by JR Compton

The bright front bedroom at 1026 shows
off a few of a lot of artists' work.

It's up, it looks good, and we're excited about the opening tonight and the show all weekend in the residence at 1026 Tranquilla.

We hung 119 pieces all over the house -- in the living and dining areas, in the back garden room, the bedrooms, the kitchen, dining room and even in the bathrooms. It's a house full of art. Ya'll come visit.

The hanging was arduous but a gas. Lots of people helped. Lots of ideas aired and expressed. Lots of work put into the show and lots of work in the show. We're all amazed at the diversity of the art. You should see it. It would make us all very happy, if you do.

The yellow back, master bedroom is gorgeous in early morning light. Shown are Carol Wilder / Larry Enge collaborations with a pot by Marty Ray.

The back porch, garden room is allive with light during the day and with art night and day. That's the yellow room up the stars. Along the bottom left are Richard Ray paintings (including the one below) interspersed with Carol Wilder prints. Another R. Raytops a photograph by JR Compton, center. On the right is a large wall hanging by Anila Agha over a row of Sheila Cunningham Poloraoid transfers (similar to the one above).


Danna Jackson - Sister Moon

This is what you see just inside the red front door: 2 Chris Fulmer mixed media objects leaning on the wall and Art Shirer's Quake that might rock back and forth on its top rail with its swinging pendulum below.
