Well, the review is finished, and it’s on to the next big thing (or things, as the case may be.)
This week, I have an upcoming show, at the Studio2Gallery in Austin, called “Phoenix: Rising from the Ashes.” The gallery is on South Lamar, over by Holland Photo for those in town. The reception is Saturday from 6:30-9:30 pm. I hope you can make it! This will be my second Austin-area appearance is just about as many months-surprising since, lately it seems as if I’ve been sending my work afar more than keeping it home.
I was also blessed and lucky enough this year to participate in Picture the Cure again this year. That show opened in downtown Toronto earlier this month and runs on the web for a long time, so you can follow the link to checkout my stuff (I’m in the gallery.)
As for the review itself, it went quite well. I think we all had wonderful work and really had a great time with the reviewers. It’s so nice of them to be so kind to do this sort of thing. As you know, or can probably guess, it’s a lot of work to do this from the photographer’s point of view, but it’s always worth it in the end. It’s a great “checkpoint” to make sure that our work is on point and on course to go someplace interesting, not to mention a great exercise in presenting our work, learning to talk about it, sharing ideas and all of that. I absolutely love the notion of people getting together for an evening to discuss photography-it’s the very cerebral side of an otherwise “hands on” and slightly solitary art form. Sure, we have the web and beasts like flickr, but that’s still quite lonely and can be hard to navigate. The review grants us a more personal experience and an opportunity to really stop and slow down-to really take in a handful of selected images instead of being blasted with a “stream” like the web.
In other news, it’s raining in River City today. Not that sort of drenching thunderous rain we typically get, more like a soft soaking kind of a rain. I actually kind of like it. I’ll probably post more “it’s raining today” posts this week too, as the weatherman is calling for more rain throughout the week.
I hope you enjoy your Tuesday too.
Until next time…
