diana's dad is an artist and teaches art classes at the art institute that he co founded. they have two locations where they have classes, one of which doubles as an art gallery. last weekend they started a new exhibit, mostly of photography, and had a gallery opening. diana told me about it and was disappointed because she wasn't going to be able to make it due to work. i figured i had some free time, so i drove over and stopped in. the gallery has two rooms, one of them is very light with white walls, perfect for displaying photography, and the other room is a bit darker, and has track lighting, much better suited for paintings. i arrived and talked with diana's dad for a while, he was pleasantly shocked to see me there. soon after i got there diana's sister barbara arrived. i got to talk with her for a while and check out the artwork. it was great to see both of them and just see her dad in his element- he was loving it!
