Show at the Los Angeles Cathedral.

The day finally arrived when my "Siegfrieds" (three of them) were hung at the Our Lady of Angels Cathedral as part of the California Art Club organized Ring Cycle exhibit. Many artists participated with interpretations of Wagner's work that ranged from the classical illustration style to the almost abstract an even humorous. Each chapel was decorated with pieces corresponding to the parts of the Opera. One last big chapel captured the paintings that had no specific episodic attribution like landscapes or symbolic artwork. The space of the cathedral is stunning to say the least and the reception was a lot of fun. Unusual subject in an unusual setting for sure.
