After two and a half hours, our art team had hung all but 3 of the 42 pieces I brought to the club this morning. That means there are 39 in the show.
The Club is a pretty elegant place, I have to say.
How about this grand staircase, for example? And that massive grandfather clock on the right? It strikes a deep, authoritative chime, I can tell you that. I can also tell you that I was originally going to say that it struck an authoritative bong, but that would be inappropriate.
The club occupies the 1895 Theodore Lyman house, designed by the architectural firm of Hapgood & Hapgood and fitted out with no fewer than 17 fireplaces.
If you want to see this gracious old building, or the 39 pieces in my show, come to a reception, Friday February 7, from 5:30 to 7:30 at the Town and County Club, 22 Woodland St., Hartford.
