My Holga Photos at the Delaplaine Arts Center & G.R.A.C.E.

I just got word that two of my Holga pieces will be displayed at The Delaplaine Visual Arts Education Center's 2007 Juried Regional Show from June 2 to July 22! The opening reception will be Saturday, June 9th, from 3-5 PM. As of now, I don't think I'll be able to make the opening because I will be working on my wedding Holga project in a faraway land (no, I'm not fleeing the country, just the jurisdiction!) so unless that falls through, I won't be in the area. But I would love to meet anyone at the Delaplaine who wanted to talk about my work or ask me questions at another time during the show's run. Ah, one of the few downsides of being a wedding photographer is that I work on the weekends. But that's okay, I love my job!

To find the show:
The Delaplaine Visual Arts Education Center
40 South Carroll Street
Frederick, Maryland 21701
The Delaplaine Visual Arts Education Center on the web


And a reminder that a couple of my Holga photos will also be on display at the Greater Reston Arts Center in June / July for the ArtsCouncil @ GRACE show.

Opening reception: Friday, June 22, from 6-8 PM (I will be around for that one!)

Artist’s dialogue - July 12th at 7:30 PM (I am planning to attend this as well)

To find the show:
Greater Reston Arts Center
12001 Market Street, Suite 103
Reston VA 20190
Greater Reston Arts Center on the web

If only I could get some of my Holga work into an exhibit in the District in July, I would have a triumvirate of evil.. I mean, Holga.

Holga Wedding!

On Thursday I tagged along with friends Jamie and Natalie of Borrowed Blue to do something I've been itching to do for quite a while now: to photograph an entire wedding using a Holga! I've tried to bring a Holga along and shoot a roll or two in between regular coverage, but I have found that it doesn't really work as well as it could, since I'm too worried about missing a moment and can't focus on making a really great Holga image. Anyway, I have all the film (yes, film!) finished, and am in the process of editing it. When I finish going through everything, I'll post more images, but I couldn't wait to show this one.

Thank you Jamie and Natalie for letting me shoot with you, and also thanks to Vanessa and Jesse, the wonderful couple who allowed me to be there on their big day!
(That's Vanessa being escorted to the ceremony by her dad in the photo above...)

Edited to add more images!

Friday Night Fun in a Field

It's Friday night (technically now Saturday early, early morning!), and Andy and I were here looking for something to do. Most couples go out to eat, take in a movie, maybe go socialize. Not us! We drag our gear to a nearby field and take photos of each other! So I am posting a few of my photos of Andy, the cutest human boy ever!

You'll have to ask Andy for the photos he took of me.

The Cutest Thing Ever

I know every mother thinks her baby is the cutest, but I know for a FACT that mine is the cutest thing in the entire universe! This is Maurice, a few days after his haircut, sleeping on one of his big soft dog beds.

When we first bought this bed for Maurice, he didn't know what to do with it. He was a rescue dog, and lived the first year of his life chained up outside. And there were no big soft dog beds for outside dogs. So he just grabbed one end and started whipping it around the room! I figured it was just not going to work and chalked it up to another waste of money, but then I fell asleep on that bed one day, and he came over and slept next to me... and has been sleeping on his bed ever since. I guess someone just needed to show him how it was done, and if it's one thing I'm good at, it's sleeping.

Artomatic - Meet the Artists!

Friday May 4th (that's today!) is meet the artists night at Artomatic. The whole thing goes from 6 PM to 1 AM, and artists are encouraged to be in their spaces so that you can talk with them and see the people behind the art. Get the lowdown HERE. Artomatic is just a metro stop away (Crystal City), and there's also free parking across the street. The address for Artomatic is 2121 Crystal Drive, Arlington, VA, in the old Patent Offices. So come and have some fun!

Another bit of exhibit news - I got into the ArtsCouncil@GRACE2007 show! I entered 5 of my Holga pieces (all of which are in Artomatic), but am not sure which one(s) they chose for the show yet. Here's part of the e-mail I received to let me know:

Congratulations on being selected to exhibit your work in ArtsCouncil@GRACE 2007.

We received over 500 artworks for consideration for this annual juried show, making the selection process an exciting challenge for our juror, Irene Hofmann.

We hope that you will join us at the reception and award ceremony for this year’s exhibition at the Greater Reston Arts Center. The opening reception will be held on Friday, June 22, from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.

In addition there will be an artist’s dialogue on July 12th at 7:30 p.m. at the gallery. We hope that you will be able to join us for this opportunity to discuss your work with other artists and interested viewers.

So great news all around, and I hope to see a lot of people tonight!
