Wondrous Indeed Exhibition

Location Complex

The Center for Fine Art Photography

February 7, 2014, Fort Collins, Colorado: Opening reception, people from different parts of the United States have congregated to celebrate and enjoy photography at The Center for Fine Art Photography (C4FAP.) As one of the exhibiting artists, I was there representing my work and meeting with people of similar interests. In addition, members of C4FAP and exhibiting artists attending received an exclusive presentation by Phillip Toledano regarding his past and most recent work, which was interesting and engaging. The show was well received by the public, in fact, I had the pleasure to hear great comments about my work from a spectator’s standpoint which was new to me. Overall, it was a very exciting and joyful night.

Portfolio Fabrication

Also, I had the opportunity to meet with Phillip Toledano and Hamidah Glasgow for a portfolio review. See below image and time-lapse of portfolio fabrication. (This is a good example where I get to use my architectural background toward my advantage.)

Wondrous Indeed Exhibition Opening Reception

This exhibition is bound to be unusual. The juror, Phillip Toledano is an internationally renowned photographer with an eye for finding the incredible in the everyday. While an image of a tree surrounded by floating cheese-balls is an actual unbelievable sculpture, the cat in the woman’s mouth is not. Both the real and the surreal combine to delight the senses in this exhibition. Expect to see things in a whole new way after seeing Wondrous Indeed.
