me and my friend Siel who writes the amazing green LA girl blog
Thank you to all of the people who came out to my opening on Sat. It was a lot of fun and we had a great turnout. I know that last weekend was packed so not to worry if you thought you could make it, but got sidetracked. The show will be up until Sept. 30. I will be gallery sitting a couple of times and will let you know when on FB and Twitter. Also, we hung the show so that if you want to walk on by, you can see most of it from the street.
Thank you to my husband Garen who tended bar.
The trash that I collected from 4 - 20 minute cleanups the week leading up to the opening.
My friend Kirsten James from Heal the Bay came by after a monster-long-day of Coastal Cleanup activities and then went to a Lucinda Williams show! Thanks for stopping by Kirsten!
Another Heal the Bay champ - Natalie Burdick - showed up too! Thank you Natalie! Heal the Bay hosted Coastal Cleanup Bay in our area & were kind enough to post about the opening on their webpage
A kelp photograph hangs in the window of the gallery that can be seen from the sidewalk.
I wrote text to go underneath some of the photographs. My friend Mary Michel (who put this show together with her husband Toby - HUGE THANKS!!) suggested that since I combine writing and photography, I do the same for the show. It felt right to see the two elements up together.
Mary and Toby own and operate the Angeles Printing Studio on Ocean Park Blvd. Mary is a fantastic photographer and artist. Thanks to Mary for printing out all of the photographs for the show.
This print is at least 2 feet by 3 feet. I love seeing it blown up to this scale.
One of the most commented prints of the night. All of my photographs are exactly what I saw when I took them. I don't:
-alter the color or lighting
- move anything before I take the shot
- what you see is what I saw
Sometimes the best shots are out there, ready and waiting for you to walk up and find them.
