January Show Theme: Flight
I was happy to have all 3 of my pieces accepted in the January juried show at the SF Women Artists Gallery.
They all have 'something' to do with Flight.... I called the shot above To the Moon - for obvious reasons. I took the photograph at the dock where floats are kept. This one was part of the Hyundai float.
It's matted and framed to 18 x 24". As you see, none of these involve actual flying! The one on the right was shot at a county fair, and I call it Playtime. And below, Contemplation, is actually a stuffed bird, perched as if about to take off from a large cage.
Both are framed in 16 x 24" black frames with white matting.
The Reception is Thursday, January 9 from 5:30 to 7:30 at the SFWA Gallery, 3489 Sacramento Street @ Laurel. Come and meet some of the artists.
No long photo walks this month, but a few opportunities during some tour-guiding in the Mission and around the Embarcadero. Below are 5 bits of whimsey.
My new book, SF Bay Area Jazz and Bluesicians has been doing very well - sold over 150 copies since Thanksgiving. The fun thing is that people are really using it as an autograph book. I wonder who will be the first to get all 117 autographs! It's available at bayareajazzandbluesicians.com or on amazon.com - or wherever I am - I usually have some copies in my car. In addition, Bird & Beckett Books and Records stocks it, so if you're near Glen Park, you can pick one up there. A partial preview is available here.
In addition, my previous book, Street Seens can still be had from blurb.com.
It's full of street photography from around the world, and it's available in paper and hard cover versions.
You can preview the whole book HERE. It's only available online - purchase details on the preview page.
