Exhibtion + New Work at SFMOMA Artists Gallery

The week's off to a sunny start, and I have two bits of new to share... I've been invited to participate in a Bay Area exhibition curated by Carrie Lederer of Bedford Gallery, and Steve Pon of SFMOMA Artists Gallery.

"Habitat: Explorations of Home and Shelter in Contemporary Art"
California Bank of Commerce
3595 Mt. Diablo Blvd., Second Floor
Lafayette, CA

20x30 prints of "Life in Lemon Yellow" and "Valley of the Moon Apartments" are on view through May 13, 2011. I attended the Opening Reception on Thursday, and really enjoyed the work of Kerri Lee Johnson, Tyler Bewley, Mary Bayard White, Michelle Nye, Terry Hoff, Jeannie O'Connor (to name just a few!) and encourage you to check out their work.

Also... "Life in Lemon Yellow" and "Palm Springs Imperial" are now available for rental or purchase at SFMOMA Artists Gallery in Fort Mason Center (San Francisco). The Gallery is in such a beautiful space with gorgeous views of the Golden Gate -- if you're in San Francisco you really must visit! Also, you might like their new blog, here.

Thanks everyone...

A few more on Sale...

I just added two new Paris prints to the Sale Section of my Etsy shop. Every once in a while I like to try out new paper types or printing methods, and such would be the case with these two prints. These are high quality Giclee prints from a professional photolab, just 1 print of each photograph available.

I add photographs to the Sale Section pretty often, and at the moment there are 23 highly discounted prints looking for a good home. Thanks to those of you who have participated so far...!

(And, whether work-day or holiday, Happy Monday to You!)

"Museum Girl" 10-1/2" x 14" Giclee Print ($20)

"le Peacock" 10-1/2" x 14" Giclee Print ($26)

Feeling Frenchy, A Sale...

Josh and I have spent this holiday weekend hiding out from the rain, at work in our shop. While he's been busy in the woodshop, I've rearranged our showroom and inventoried prints. I've sorted through stacks of prints from past years, and I must tell you... I really want to see more of this world.

I can hardly believe that its been almost six years since my Mom and I had our Parisian adventure. We spent most of April 2005 exploring that magical city, and each Spring since, I feel a gentle urge to return. And when I look at these photographs, I'm transported, still...

This weekend I've added prints from my Paris series to the Sale section of my etsy shop. Print prices are highly discounted (as low as $5!) and in most cases, there is only one specially-priced print of each photo available. So if you see something you like, go for it! Proceeds will directly benefit this photographer's travel fund (and when the time comes, I promise I'll send a postcard!)

Thanks everyone, I hope you're enjoying a wonderful weekend!

Side by Side

You'd think I'd know my photographs pretty well by now, but they still continue to surprise me. Today, in the process of inventorying prints, I discovered a new pairing that's making me really happy. I've probably seen these two together a hundred times, but today's the day their togetherness struck me...

Motel Bel Air + Skycab, no.2 = such the happy couple
