Yo MOMMA Through the Looking Glass

Looking Glass, No. 1
Yo MOMMA . The Show, went off beautifully with 69 artists participating, each with a piece in their own medium and distinct style and over 400 people in attendance. My piece, yo MOMMA Smokes! was very well received and curiously, given that the 12345 Gallery is owned by photographers, one of the only works of photography on exhibit.  Most of the other pieces were in the form of painting or mixed media.

About half-way through the show, there were just so many people in the gallery that the crowd just spilled out into the street.  It was at this time that I captured three images of the crowd, on the street looking into the gallery through the gallery's main window.  The images of the people outside, illuminated by the light spilling out from inside the gallery and also by ambient street light, mixed with the reflection of the people inside the gallery makes for a surreal experience.  Looking Glass, No. 1 is my favorite of the three.  Click here to see the set of three on Flickr.

yo MOMMA Smokes!

yo MOMMA Smokes!
My opening was a huge success, well attended and lots of fun both for me and, I hope, everyone who attended.  My studio was swamped on many occasions that night and the photos were well-received.  Well, on to the next show . . .

yo MOMMA . the SHOW

 Hmmmm, should I characterize this?  Myra Wexler aka yo MOMMA has gotten 50 artists to make portraits of her, each in their own medium and distinctive style.  yo MOMMA Smokes! is my submission.  This promises to be a great evening.  I'm looking forward to it.
