I stayed up a bit late last night tweaking and uploading my eight final photo choices to the online printing and framing company (they did a very good job on the test image I'd sent). Even at their very modest rates for work done, it's expensive when you multiply by eight. The finished and framed pieces should arrive in plenty of time for the October 1 hanging. Tonight or tomorrow I'll choose some of my framed work from my first show, done long ago, to hang with the new stuff. This process has been interesting to me if to nobody else!
I'm in the U.K so I can't visit the show but I am intrigued – where is it James ?
The show (only about 14 pieces) will be at the public library in Westlake, Ohio, USA. Many of the pictures have appeared here on Vox (the recent stuff) but the old photos have never been scanned and date from my B&W film and darkroom days. I'm also setting up a free online gallery of the pictures and will have printed calendars available for purchase. Thanks for your interest! — JG
That's so great. You should allow yourself to feel proud. To display art in public is a sweet honour for anyone. I hope it all goes to plan for you.
Congratulations! Looking forward to seeing the online gallery.
It has been a long, long time since I last did any sort of gallery display. So much is literally out of my hands this time what with the printing being done by a service bureau. And photos can look much different on a nice computer screen vs. on a piece of paper. I'll try and keep your comments in mind as things move foreward. Thanks. — JG
Thank you, Emjay. I'm hoping that my little show turns out to be more than just a space filler for the month. I'm anxious to see the framed work… and not the happy, skippy kind of anxious, either! — JG
Looking forward to seeing the selections. I want a calendar!
Well thank you! I've created the calendar at an online source and ordered a copy for myself; I want to see how good it is before I offer it to anyone else. — JG
