b.a.l.m. WHITE SHOW at Hausmann Millworks reviewed

June 21, 2010

The b.a.l.m. WHITE SHOW at Hausmann Millworks was a little lighter on the trek
back to Kansas.  Three additional art works sold while in San Antonio, Texas.
Congratulations artists!

We heard over and over how much people appreciated the level of quality that this
show has to offer.  We would like to thank the people of San Antonio for their
appreciation, requests for extension, supporting this traveling art show both in
purchases as well as attendance and by word of mouth.  Thank you to Rex
Hausmann and the Millworks for hosting and helping sponsor the exhibition.

The exhibition opened on March 6th, 2010 in conjunction with
Contemporary Art Month (CAM) with a well attended reception with many curators,
directors and art buyers and of course art lovers.  There was also a large closing
reception on March 27th, 2010, with art performances, bands etc and
because of numerous requests the exhibit was extended to May 5th, 2010.

There was an excellent review  By Elda Silva – (San Antonio) Express-News
‘White Show’ able to amuse and unsettle at the same time
