Meet the Artists

IMG 0907 Meet the Artists I’m so far behind I’m afraid I’m going to lap myself. Not sure what that means. But I know it’s time for another post, so here goes.

On the last full day of Dave Rudin’s visit we drove up to Detroit for “Meet the Artists” night at the River’s Edge Gallery where I currently have a couple prints in a show. It was a fun night with a lot of good friends. Those are my prints on the wall in the photo at the top. The rules for this show were to send your favorite work of art and a self-portrait.

The wonderful creative force behind this show is Patty Izzo. That’s her on the right below with Dave and one of the hostesses for the evening.

He decided to do a road trip and visit family and friends as well as attend the opening where he had his own work in the show. That’s the lovely Iris giving Joe a hug. Iris had some great work in the show too.

IMG 0931 Meet the Artists Tomorrow morning I take off for a trip to Athens, Ohio, to photograph a dance concert. It’s always fun to get back down there and get back to shooting dance. I’m hoping to get some of the dancers up to Dayton in the near future so I can photograph them in the new studio with that 16-foot cyc that is now all repaired and ready for use. The rehearsals go late into the night, so although I expect to have internet access at my motel I don’t know if I’ll have the time or energy for another post before I get back…but there is still a lot to catch up on here, so I might give it a try.

    Dave – It was good seeing you and everyone else at the opening. It was definitely worth the drive.

    Dave, I really enjoyed seeing you again, and catching up a little. It had been much too long since the last time we talked.
