I'm an artist once again

...or, why we didn't go to the concert Thursday night.

There's an organization here in Brooklyn called the Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition (and abbreviated BWAC) that, among other things, hosts art shows in Brooklyn (specifically, in the up-and-coming, or reviving, Red Hook section of Brooklyn). The next show is entitled "The Words of Color", and I'll be one of the artists exhibiting in the show.

I haven't shown my PhototalesTM in a long time, because I've been focused on other aspects of my life, and I've never shown them other than at a science fiction convention, so this will be an exciting new step for me as an artist. The show runs from 12 September to 25 October in a reclaimed warehouse, at 499 Van Brunt Street in Brooklyn. It's open only on weekends, Saturdays and Sundays, from 1 to 6PM.

Well, we missed the concert Thursday night because that's when we went to hang my pieces (we were hanging my mother's art the night before). If you're looking for some interesting art (I haven't seen it all yet, but of the pieces I have seen, there's some great stuff), this should be a nice way to spend a day. And if you do manage to see the whole show (they're expecting more than 1,000 pieces by 250 artists), the neighboring warehouse sticking out into the harbor on a pier has some interesting views, and it's a great place to see a part of New York City you probably never do see (it was new to me).

My work is hanging on panel 150, which is upstairs (the bulk of the show is on the second floor, rather than the ground level), in the hall to the left, in the center aisle (a choice piece of real estate). I'm going to try to be at the opening reception, which is Saturday 12 September, but I'm not sure when else I'll be there.

Oh, and my PhototalesTM? They're combinations of black-and-white photographs and short-short stories; the kind of things my skewed view of the world sees that others don't. I think you'll enjoy them (at least, I hope you will).
