My year long tour of the John Allan’s stores comes to an end today. It was an amazing experience, many thanks to Andrea and Patty at John Allan’s for introducing me to JA and handling all the logistics. Thanks as well go to Nancy, Angelia, Michael, David, Barbara, Lorna, Sandy, Sean and all the other people who helped me hang, hang, hang, and move the show to the 3 locations. I couldn’t have done it without you all and I really appreciate your support and friendship!
I’ve discussed before that it is very important to print your work in this digital age. The epitome of printing hopefully results in an exhibit. To create and collect a body of work, to tell a story for all to see is truly an amazing experience. The logistics of matting and framing and how the show is hung in each space is a continuation of the creative process. In some locations I needed to cut images from the show and in the last space I added 11 new images. Finding the best interpretation of the images in the given space was like looking for THE shot of a certain subject.
The whole experience focused my body of work even more, I hope to have a portfolio section updated on my website with a selection of the work that was featured as well as a book in the near future.
For those of you who were not able to attend last month’s opening we did set up a time lapse capture of the space. I put it together as a movie that shows the comings and goings of all the people with a little surprise at the end!
