Tomandy Gallery Opening

The Tomandy Gallery opening went exceptionally well Saturday night and I want to thank all that stopped by for fighting the unexpected crowds of downtown Frederick. The way Tomas hung the show, each image was accentuated and the flow perfect. The most popular image of the night was The Reading, from that last session with Melanie Blankenship.

Now that the crowds have gone home is the ideal time to stop by and spend a few minutes with the show. And a special thanks to Tomas for inviting me

Final Prep for Tomandy Show

Another TimeFrom Another Time, the session with Kelly that was the inspiration for the series, to American Beauty, the final shoot a few weeks ago with Melanie, it’s been great. The project came together on it’s own, constantly evolving with the collaboration, dedication and creativity of all involved. Special moments from each session now interwoven to become a collection of images I could only imagine a year and half ago. Final prep is underway for the Tomandy Gallery show this weekend, all 20 pieces are framed and ready to be packed. Doing the last of the paperwork so I can deliver to Tomas on Thursday and we can hang for the weekend opening.

American Beauty

This project and the show at Tomandy has become special to me for another reason. As some of you know, we’ll be relocating to Greenville, SC, this summer. I haven’t done a solo show in Frederick for a couple of years, and Tomas has presented the opportunity for a farewell of sorts.

A reminder, the show opens Saturday 2/7, 6PM at Tomandy Gallery, 25 E Patrick ST, Frederick, MD. I hope you can come by (the weather should be good), but if not, the show will hang through February.
