Going up on a wall

In this week of surprises, I'm pleased as punch to share this one: a local studio, ArtVenture, is organizing a photo exhibit of my work. (Pause. Breathe. There, I'm good.)

The exhibit is called "Photography For The Rest Of Us" and it runs for three weeks between February 1 and 21.

If you're anywhere near my burg during that time, I invite you for a personal, guided tour anytime you wish. And if you're not, rest assured that many of the 20 photos that will be on display have been or will be shared in this space as well.

Here's the link to the posting on LondonArts.ca.

Thank you to everyone who drops by for your ongoing encouragement. The incredible community that's grown out of this silly new media experiment of mine has given me the incentive to see where this photography thing can take me.

OMG That's amazing, Carmi!!! You so deserve this. I wish I was in that area, I would definitely stop by. I'm there in spirit, though. I can't imagine how psyched you must be about this. Mazel Tov!

Such great news indeed...

Patty Mooney said...

That's fantastic.
Yes, you can, and yes you did.
I'll bet you are a big inspiration to others whether you know it or not.

"A brief-yet-ongoing journal of all things Carmi. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll reach for your mouse to click back to Google. But you'll be intrigued. And you'll feel compelled to return following your next bowl of oatmeal. With brown sugar. And milk." Yes, I am intrigued. And, yes, I will return. Just cannot resist an idealist who believes in random acts of kindness and that words can make a difference. =) Congratulations on your exhibit!

What fantastic news, Carmi!! Congratulations! You are so deserving of this for your photography and more. You have given me so much encouragement, which has often kept me motivated during a slump, and I know I have learned from a master. I just have to say this: Considered yourself hugged!
