On closer reading of the listing for the show it finally dawned on me it was " Brad's first Museum Retrospective". (!) Wow! I thought I was just showing at a really really really REALLY nice gallery... and here it was a museum! Well, big apologies to the fine folks working at the Manhattan Beach Creative Arts Center for referring to your establishment as a gallery. I am completely humbled and honored (...and feel pretty dumb!)
My only defense is I was working so hard to put this show on I didn't realize the extent of the fine people and art establishment involved.... and ...ah... I live on a volcanic island far far away from the ultra swank big city art scene.
Once and again a million mahalos to everyone who helped, who came to see my art, and who purchased art. It was amazing.
big big BIG ALOHA!
