Thanks to some great and generous people, a show for May has pretty much dropped into my lap. As of two days ago, I had no physical shows planned to coincide with my last month at SCAD.
Now, it’s going to be at the Starland, Cafe and Gallery, right near Desoto Row in Savannah, for the month of May. That’s 11 East 41st Street, between Bull and Drayton, next to the dog park.
There will be an unofficial opening night during First Friday, May 1st, and a closing reception on May 29th, the night before SCAD’s Graduation Commencement where I’ll be receiving my BFA.
The show, which includes work from all three of my straight photography books, is called Prelude to Gray Days, and is a sort of prologue to the public release of Gray Days, which will be available on my website soon.
Here’s a flyer:
Feel free to spread it around and tell your friends. I’d love to see people come out. This will by my first solo or collaborative show that my parents and my best friend from my formative years will actually be able to attend, so even though it’s a pretty laid back space, I’m very excited about it. It’s also my last show as an undergraduate student, so while I know school is just some thing and not really an epic hurdle… well, it feels a little important. I admit, I’m a bit verklempt.
I’d hope as many of you as possible can drop by – I’ll be sending out facebook invitations and actually printing some posters to put around town. Anyone who wants to bring some kind of potluck dish, let me know and I’ll trade you a print for your cooking skills. Beth and I will also supply some drinks and food and Michael at Starland Cafe says there’s a good chance they will have some treats out as well.
