For a few years now I’ve maintained separate blogs for my printing business (the blog name was The Paper Chase) and my photography. A few months ago I morphed the photography blog into this one. I’ve been wrestling with how best to go forward with the other and I’ve finally made a decision – everything will be consolidated here on 56×56. The multiple blogs only resulted in confusion for readers and extra work for myself. The Paper Chase will live on going forward as a category here on 56×56 as well as in my selecting writings on printing. So, here we go!
One of the main topics on The Paper Chase was providing updates on exhibitions and other news relating to Nickelson Edition clients. Since The Paper Chase is no more, I thought I would summarize a few of the recent posts that are no longer available as they pertain to current exhibitions.
Okay, onto the client shows! I just mentioned UMMA’s Photo National 2011 in the previous post here, but you can find Sarah Szwajkos a few other places right now, too, including Smith College in Massachusetts:
Personal Space: Photographic Portraits of Homes & Special Places
Smith College Alumnae House Gallery, Northampton, MA
4/25/2011 – 9/1/2011
You can see Lynn Karlin’s gorgeous work in a few places right now, too. In addition to a number of pieces at Sweet Pea Gardens in Surry, Maine, you can find her Pedestal Series work at the joint “From the Garden to the Kitchen”exhibits between the Stonewall Kitchen Gardens and the George Marshall Store Gallery in York. The Stonewall Kitchens exhibit includes large-scale replications of the artists work in the Stonewall Kitchen gardens, and planting is designed to complement the art pieces. The gardens are expected to be open for viewing by mid-June and in full bloom by mid-July. A celebration will be held July 14th. You can find photos of the installation (there are pretty cool!) on a posting by one of her galleries in Hammertown, NY.
NE client Thomas Birtwistle and 3 other photographers are featured in a new show at the new Common Street Gallery in Waterville, which runs until August 17th. It looks like an interesting show and I’ll hopefully be able to make it over there this summer to check out the show, and gallery, in person.
