I’m really pleased with how Monday’s reception went for my Northfield photography exhibit (Near-Far Northfield) at the Northfield Senior Center Gallery.  A couple dozen people came over the course of the two hours, keeping me chatting the whole time while fellow artist Joyce Francis engaged visitors with her gel plate demo. The refreshments (including wine) and food provided by the NSC were a nice touch. And I sold two pieces.

Senior Center Assistant Director Patsy Dew and her crew of volunteers had to come up with a creative solution when they discovered that my photos couldn’t be hung using their gallery wires. (I used 3/4 inch peel/stick mounting boards from MountingBoards.com.) So instead, they put each photo on a small frame holder and placed them all in three glass cases. Brilliant.

Props to my sweetie, Robbie Wigley, who helped me throughout the preparation for this show, including the delicate task of mounting and trimming the photos.

The exhibit runs through Oct. 13.
