Scenes from Friday's opening at Raymond Gallery

Friday, Nov. 15, 2013: Take a small gallery on Raymond Avenue in St. Paul, add two shows - one by gallery owner Joseph Brown of artists' portraits and lighted inflatable sculptures, one by legendary Minnesota potter Warren MacKenzie - send out e-cards, dangle the chance to buy one of MacKenzie's pieces (his works are so collectible they're rationed, like sugar during wartime), open the door and stand back. It was wall-to-wall people including many artists. Off the top of my head: Bob Briscoe, Mary Easter, Dick and Debbie Cooter, Richard Stephens, Guillermo Cuellar, Tressa Sularz, "Media Mike" Hazard, Wayne Potratz, Michael Norman. Madness!
