I posted a few months ago about the potential for me to have my very first gallery show. There was a HUGE outpour of support here on the blog, on Facebook, on Twitter and beyond. So first off, thanks for all the help, the suggestions on what to submit and what to leave out. Your thoughts were incredibly helpful to me.
Guess what, I got the show! It’s up right now at the Perlow-Stevens Gallery and it looks great, can I say that? Seriously though, everyone I’ve talked to has said great things about it and apparently a few people have shown interest in buying a few of the prints, which I would of course welcome!
Here is a preview of what you’ll see when you go there. Of course everything looks different in a gallery setting. I have always felt my images look best big and have printed each photo 20×30 inches with a four in matte mounted on archival board and put in beautiful, white Nielsen frames. All put together they are 28×38 inch, white frames, white matte and mostly white images. The lighting mixed with the choices on the matte and frames really helps the colors pop.
I had a great little evening last week with several friends, Chase, Sam, David, Korrie, Laura, Eric, Justin R, Sydney and a few others all joined me at Top Ten Wines for drinks to celebrate the opening of my show. Turns out it was Ping Pong Night at Top Ten, which was kind of fun to watch haha. Drunk people playing ping pong, ahem, table tennis, is always a fun venture. It’s the reason Google added a drunk-test to Gmail for those of us who have sent unfortunate emails while under the influence… LoL They really take it serious, brackets and all!
Perhaps the funniest part of the night were these photos captured by Sam or David, I can’t even remember, of Chase. Make up your own story, I’ll provide the series of images…
There will be an official opening for my show, as well as a few other artists this Saturday. The reception is on April 10th, 6:00-9:00p. I hear there will be free booze and food so you really have no excuse not to come!
