A quick note about this show of selected works from the photographers that participated in the Port Photo Walk on April 30th. This day was also Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day so most of the photos in the show are pinhole. For the second year in a row, the weather was lousy, cold, windy and very rainy. I shot a roll of 120 film with a borrowed Zero Image 6×9 pinhole camera. It’s a beautiful camera and since it wasn’t mine, I put it away before it was damaged and shot a roll of color film in the Mamiya M645 I had recently acquired.
The show runs until September 2 and is in the excellent little Studio 224 gallery, in the basement of the Boerner Mercantile building in downtown Port Washington, WI. It is open from 9-1 on Saturdays, 211 Franklin Street (north alley entrance). Many thanks to Martin Morante for arranging the photo walk and show.
I’m very happy to have 5 photographs chosen to be a part of this show. The show started with a conversation between Gallery 224 director Jane Suddendorf and Port Washington Mayor, Tom Mlada. What resulted is a selection of photographs from 17 local photographers in which they share their personal connections to the city. After the exhibition concludes near the end of April, the entire show will be displayed in Port Washington’s sister city, Sassnitz, in Germany. An opening reception will be held on March 24th from 5-7pm at Gallery 224. You can read more in the Ozaukee Press article published this week.
The opening reception for my Familiar Strangers show at Studio 224 was last Friday. There was an excellent turnout and it was a great night. The Shepherd Express in Milwaukee also had a nice preview of the show in their issue last week (below). A big thank you to Jane Suddendorf, Director of Gallery 224 and Studio 224, for her efforts to help artists and their work to flourish in Port Washington. Thank you as well to Martin Morante, Studio Director, for his interest in showing my work, his feedback and guidance through the editing process, and his hard working getting the prints on the walls. I appreciate all the friends and family that made it out and the new faces too. If you couldn’t make it, the show will be up until early January and Studio 224 is open every Saturday, 9am-1pm. Let me know if you’re stopping in and I’ll make sure I’m there. Directions here.
