Ligo Haibun Challenge 04/10-10/10

art exhibition



The idea of an exhibition was exciting.  It was fascinating watching you choose which pictures you’d show.  When the time came, the careful placing of each piece creating a harmonious collage of forms and color.  I bought some flowers; we’d place them on a pedestal, with one of your sculpted ladies.
We chose the music carefully, deciding on Debussy and Eric Satie.  We arranged the furniture and brought our own desk to the gallery covering it with a tan colored linen cloth.
Opening day, we watched the people look at your pictures, fascinated by the various reactions and interpretations.  Some people looked in from the street through the display window, standing sometimes for quite a long while, but when invited to come in, they scurried off.  I wonder why.

  1. I love your description of the exhibition! I can see it so clearly in my head. I often watch through windows and scurry off too if approached, so I understand this behavior. It is a little antisocial lol. Beautiful haibun. It sounds like a wonderful exhibition. 🙂


    • The exhibition isn’t at all bad..time consuming but not bad. We were thinking that the problem may have been that people were afraid we’d try to sell them something actually. 😉


    • 🙂 That occured to us too, though we do have a sign saying free entrance…which we’ve changed to Art Exhibition…still I think you’re probably right.
