Judy Pfaff exhibition installation in progress !

Judy Pfaff installation at the Weatherspoon Art Museum in the Falk Gallery

Last Tuesday night (January 4), Judy Pfaff and her assistant Rob van Erve arrived from New York with a 26 ft. truck full of artwork. Wednesday morning, they and Weatherspoon staff got busy unloading the truck, which was chock-a-block with countless small and large pieces of metal, tree limbs, paper lanterns and other equipment and unidentifiable materials to be used in Judy Pfaff’s installation. Over the course of the past two days, these parts have been gradually evolving into a marvelous installation in the Weatherspoon’s Falk Gallery. Here are pics of what the space looked like as they started unloading the truck, and what it looked like this morning. In the coming days, the work will continue to progress and transform into a beautiful exhibition that opens next Thursday.
