To the editor:
This letter comes as a heartfelt THANK YOU to all who have made my show at the Lake Placid Center for the Arts ("inPRINT from published work") a success:
To those from near and far who came to the Friday evening opening, thank you for gazing, grazing and joining in the opening festivities. It was a fine crowd of old and new friends, and I was delighted to see you all.
To the LPCA board and Gallery Committee, I thank you for inviting me to do a show, and I hope the large sampling from my "collection of work" in printed material has overcome your probable expectation of a gallery decorated with framed fine-art photography. There is some of that, but my real work is in all those published pages of historic through recent photography. And a special thank-you to the staff who helped hang, light, label, arrange and rearrange all those pages. Sage and Anya pounded many nails over the four-day hanging, and it could not have done without your strong arms, artful eyes, hanging expertise and professionalism.
Thanks to Jay and Steve at Dartbrook Rustic Goods, who have included some of their fine rustic furniture as display pieces for my work. The bookshelves and tables are perfect.
Also thanks to Laura's Custom Artworks for framing and laminating services and literally deadlining the deadline.
Many hugs to friends and adventurers who have stepped, paddled, hiked, biked, skied into the frame when asked, and for just being there to share the fun.
And a final huge thank-you to all the clients, editors, publishers, printers, graphic artists, designers, ad agencies, art directors and communication professionals who have faith in my vision and have allowed me to help tell their stories. Final presentation is everything, and I have been frequently rewarded by seeing my photography inPRINT. For me, that's what it's all about.
With sincerest gratitude,
Note: The show runs through June 22 at the Lake Placid Center for the Arts. For those of you who have asked, "How come I never see your photos anywhere?" now is a good time to see some.
