Announcement from Artist Stanley Grosse

Aloha all, I wanted to give you a small preview of the show opening these last
two evenings.  These were taken by some good friends as pictured in the first (fourth)
photograph below.  We had a nice group on Thursday night opening,and then a
Friday night opening again, where we had a computer set up in the gallery and I
Skyped on my IPad from my lanai studio here on Maui.  Cool.  Was able to talk
with many former students and old friends.  The Paige Gallery owner, Ken Paige
pulled out all the stops for this show.  People really liked how he interspersed
artifacts with the paintings.  More like little dioramas.  There are three, big
64 inch Giclees behind the three dear old friends, these are the first photos.I
saw, taken after the show.
Ken Paige made this happen with his incredible
sense of design and “always thinking big”.  He was like that as a student in my
class, graduating back in 1961.  Hope you enjoy, Stanley

Dear CAP’58 Alums and other Friends of Stanley Grosse,
I invite you to view a few photos from the October 5, 2012, special “Capuchino Night” exhibition of Stanley’s One-Man Show at Ken Paige’s new Paige Gallery in San Francisco. If you were not able to be there in person, you still have until November 21 to get to the gallery at 828 Brannon Street, For those attending it was a memorable evening spent with old friends and great art. We were able to visit with Stanley live via Skype, which made it extra special for everyone.

Here is the link to those photos: https://picasaweb.google.com/112244897405631821854/PaigeGalleryPhotos02?authuser=0&authkey=Gv1sRgCP3sz73Q5fmq_wE&feat=directlink
