Chicago, Chicago

IMG 0709 Chicago, Chicago

Yes, I spent the weekend in Chicago. It was a great time. So good that it’s going to take 2 or 3 posts to cover it all.

The main reason for the trip was to go to Carrie Leigh’s gallery show opening and meet her and her husband Gary. That’s them at the show with my great friend and model, Unbearable Lightness, in the first photo. They are delightful people and I was very pleased to meet them and get the chance to thank them in person for giving me the Arts for Humanity Award.

The show was at Gallery Provocateur presided over by the lovely Veronika Kotlajic. That’s her in the center of the second photo. She had done a great job promoting the show, which was obvious because the place was packed to capacity all evening. You can get some idea of that from the photos here.

It was a great evening, a lot of fun. I met some old friends and may have made a few new ones. One lovely model came to the show to meet me and I expect you will be seeing her here in the IMG 0718 Chicago, Chicagofuture, once the weather gets warm enough for more outdoor shooting. So, I’m thinking I’ll be back in Chicago sooner rather than later. If this gawd-awful winter will ever get over with.

    It was wonderful to see you, Dave, and don't forget I'm a short drive from the Greater Chicago Area!!!

    I too felt it was a great show opening and a terrific turnout. I only wish it was a larger space so she could put up more examples of art for us to peruse.I had not been to the gallery before but will keep an eye on it for future shows.

    It was great to meet you and share some good conversation. I hope we have more of the same in the future.

    Congratz on your award. At least I hope I read this correctly.

    I was reading thru the various post about the Carrie Leigh art exibit, and thought it mention you winning the first humanitarian award?

    if so, Congratz. I'm a huge fan of your work, and hope we get the chance to meet some day.
