PHOTOGRAPHY ON DISPLAY
The past weekend was a great experience and opportunity for me as a photographer. I was invited to be one of 4 artists featured in an art show at “The Meeting Place” in downtown Chamberlain, South Dakota.
The event brought out a large number of people and the feedback was so terrific. I met a lot of great people and learned a LOT! This was my first occassion of doing anything like this and it was quite a lot more work (and expense) than I anticipated but I did sell a framed print of “Colors from the Earth” and several greeting cards. The hardest part was carefully wrapping all the framed work so it wouldn’t jostle up against each other in the back of my Jeep and pulling enough pieces together to make a good show of it.
I was as nervous as could be about making such a presentation of my work but I found out that events like this are a great way to share your passion, not only for art, but for life and to also hear other’s stories!
I just want to thank Patti in Chamberlain for having me as a guest at The Meeting Place and for ALL of the terrific people who came and gave me such valuable encouragement! Also a big big thanks to my daughter, Grace, who helped me package everything, transport it, price it, and display it in a pleasing way. She didn’t even complain when I told her we were staying in a tent for 3 days! What a trooper!
