Artist Piper O’Neill Debuts First Solo Show
Last Wednesday evening was artist, Piper O’Neill’s opening party for her new body of work which is being showcased by Stacey Winston Levitan at the Winston Wachtner Gallery. Piper’s proud husband, Billy O’Neill, was there cheering her on along with Leslie & Dale Chihuly. Wine was being poured courtesy of Eric Dunham of Dunham Cellars.
Ken was especially impressed with the details on the “boxes” that Piper had created. Also a few more of the people there toasting and admiring her work were Renee & Carl Behnke, Howard Wright, Kelly & Peter McLoughlin, Lorna Kneeland and Susan & Larry Winn.
There were many luminaries from the art world also in attendance including Rock Hushka, Chief Curator at Tacoma Art Museum, Vincent Kitch, Director of the Office for Arts and Culture for the city of Seattle, and Suzanne Beal, who is a writer for Art Ltd.Magazine and recently interviewed Piper.
Other artists also in attendance supporting Piper included Joe McDonell, Flora Mace, Joey Kirkpatrick and Charlie Parriot.
It was a wonderful turnout and the buzz was that Piper sold a lot of her work on that very first evening of her solo show. Congratulations, Piper!
