Please come see one of my photos in the 2014 Pyramid Atlantic Arts Center Members Exhibition from April 5 to 25. (Of course, you should look at all the other great pieces in the show, but this is my blog, so I’m channeling my inner five-year-old and bragging about me.) The exhibition will be at the Washington Printmakers Gallery upstairs in the Pyramid Atlantic Arts Center, at 8230 Georgia Ave in Silver Spring. Gallery hours are 10 AM to 5 PM, Monday through Sunday.
The opening reception is on April 6 from 2 to 4 PM, with the juror’s awards & comments at 2:30 PM. There are a number of good places to eat in Silver Spring, and the American Film Institute nearby, so you could include the reception in a nice day out.
This is the photo I have in the Pyramid show.
If you are in the market for crafty & other items – “misprints, overgrown yarn stashes, fabric scraps, older but still beautiful work and more” – you can come by the Yard Sale in the Pyramid parking lot on Saturday April 12 from 9AM to Noon, and see the Members Exhibition at the same time. I’m working hard at clearing out excess supplies to sell that day, and will have some of my smaller prints for sale too.
While I’m bragging, I was a finalist in the 2014 Fine Art Photography Exhibit at ArtSpace Herndon, which opened on March 4 and continues until April 6. Which means I’ll have photos in two DC area shows at once – if only for a day. ArtSpace Herndon is at 750 Center St in Herndon and is open from 1 to 5 on Sunday afternoon. http://www.ArtSpaceHerndon.org.
The ArtSpace Herndon Exhibit is a really wonderful show (even if I do say so myself) and I was honored to have a piece in it. Going in, there are a couple of big, richly colored, delightful photos by D. B. Stovall, who was the exhibit juror; and the big photo of the Eiffel Tower that won first prize is a delightful example of how shooting from an unexpected point of view can make a subject that has been photographed a zillion times seem new and visually exciting.
My own contribution to the Herndon Exhibit didn’t win a prize; but it was one of the first photos to sell, which was a great ego boost. Iveta Steinhobel, who bought my print (and is, clearly, a woman of impeccable taste) kindly sent me this photo she took of me with the print at the Artists Reception.
