Running hurriedly to and from my studio to my claimed gallery space, I instinctively hung up my paintings and drawings.

I distributed the exhibition invitations to Billy, Jacob, and Cara, who were also up late working in their studios that night.
I urged them to visit the show, which would be ready in just 10 minutes.
