It’s been a busy couple of weeks between work (the day job) and photography happenings.  So busy, in fact, that I’ll let the pictures do most of the talking.  (Please forgive the image quality, though – my iPhone is ancient…)  I have two exhibits currently up and running, so here’s a little bit about each.

First Exhibit: I’ve been planning a small portrait show for a while.  It is intended to advertise a gift certificate for a portrait session that I donated to Portland Players.   Selecting the portraits wasn’t the hard part – I’m lucky, I have very attractive clients and friends!  The hard part was finding the little details for the setup.  I wanted a minimalistic display, so I was looking to avoid bulky frames, glass, nails, etc.  What I envisioned was to string wire across a black board and have clips hanging off of the wire, holding the photographs.

This is the space I was kindly allotted – 16.5 square feet, all to myself.  Here I have the wire strung, looped around metal push pins.  You can’t really see it, but I haven’t secured the far end, yet.

Here I’ve attached the clips that are going to hold the photos.  Originally, I thought one clip per photo would do, but two was better for stability purposes.  I strung the clips on the wire and then secured the second end of the wire around the push-pin.

And now, with photos!  I presorted the photos in Lightroom and sent a screenshot to my iPhone, so this step was easy as pie.

That’s my brochure and business card on the end…

Finally, just another view for fun!

Second Exhibit: About two weeks ago, I got an e-mail from a friend asking me to show my photography at the Fiddlehead Center for the Arts.  They needed someone to have something up within the week – lucky me, mine was just hanging around on my walls at home!  It has been a while since I’ve had the time to do a big show, so I jumped at the opportunity!

Upon entering the Fiddlehead Center, this is the view to the left.

To the right, my favorite shot (of the coast of Maine, at least) and my bio.  The flute headshot was requested for this, but I really need to get a good “action shot”, as my friend calls it – a photo of me taking a photo of something.  Every pro has one, right?  (Too bad I’m horribly camera-shy.)

Beyond the bio, two more Maine shots to tease the viewer into the next room.

Beyond the blue lobby awaits a room with pale peach-colored walls.  Here is where most of the show hangs.  It’s more broken up than what I’m used to, with some of it in the front and some here, but I like it.  I was most concerned with the color of the walls, but it really doesn’t bother me at all.  It definitely goes with the show’s theme of color and texture!

All pieces are for sale, with a portion of the proceeds directly benefiting the Fiddlehead Center for the Arts.  If you’d like to view the show online, please visit the Art Exhibit gallery on www.audrahatch.com.
