Jean and I spent Thanksgiving afternoon readying the gallery walls for the opening of my GLASS Photography Exhibit. Here are some photos taken after we spiffed everything up for our opening reception on Saturday, November 29th at 3PM. Hope you can make it! And, if you can’t, please enjoy this little photo tour I put together especially for you.
If you click these photos, some nice larger ones will open for your enjoyment!
Years ago, the building that houses our gallery was home to a cafe and bar. It was owned by a man named Angelo, hence the “Angie’s” logo set in tile on our landing.
The lobby area is where we’ll set up refreshments during our Saturday opening.
The large ball appears to be floating, but it is the magic of the light creating the effect.
As you enter the lobby, the main gallery is to your right. Take a peak before you enter.
When you come in, either Jean or I will be sitting behind the desk. We welcome all our visitors warmly. Please come in and enjoy the world we have created on these dark chocolate colored walls.
At the back is a counter laden with framed miniatures, folios of prints, books and notecards. A complete catalog sits on a bookstand in the center of the counter. To the left is a bin with hundreds of large reference prints, including many not hanging on our walls.
The shorter gallery wall and shelf feature photographs of the unusual flare-like effects created as light passes through glass objects. Some of these effects were created by light passing through quartz crystals.
