This past Wednesday, Shimon and Lindemann hung the photos that open the chapters of the new book. Also present was Debra Brehmer of the Portrait Society Gallery, who will have a new exhibit of the artists' work in September. They did a beautiful job, but as I'm not a photographer, I couldn't eliminate the glare. Plus I took the photo slanty.
The photos are mesmerizing, and yes, they are for sale too. Prints are $200 unframed, $275 framed. As in all exhibitions, we'll mark the print when it is sold, and they'll be available to take home at the end of the showing. We have a copy of each unframed print to take home for instant photo satisfaction. I am a little overwhelmed that we are in the company of the John Michael Kohler Arts Center and West Bend's Museum of Wisconsin Art. This is pretty amazing.*
I'm hoping that by sometime this weekend (I'm working closing shift Friday and Saturday this weekend) I'll have the protocol set for booksellers to make the transaction. And I'll have a longer post about Michael Perry, Tom Hartwig, and the new book closer to the on-sale date.
And how appropriate to post today, as its Gallery Night. The Portrait Society Gallery is hosting a closing reception from 6 to 9 pm (and open again from 1 to 5 pm tomorrow), and it's your last chance to visit before Debra Brehmer temporarily closes for deconstruction and rebuilding. That's why the theme of the current exhibits are Destruction, Re-configuration, and Growth. Plus there's a Secret Gallery. The Gallery is at 227 E. Buffalo, Fifth Floor.
*And there's nothing like going out on a high note, regarding our Art Wall. We're expecting to give up this alcove to Starbucks, who desperately needs more seating. One day I'll figure out a new space for an art wall, but it will never be the same. I'll miss you, Arty!
