The Holga Show Opening Reception

So the opening was June 18th, and it was a lot of fun. Besides checking out the Holga Show, it was also Gallery Stroll night, so I also got to see a bunch of other art in nearby galleries.

Below are some of the photos on display. There are a few of mine in this shot. (One of them had an honorable mention. Yay.)

I had photos from my travels to Texas, Indiana, Washington, and all over Utah on display. I loved how the shots were displayed-- they were organized by subject matter/theme rather than artist, which I think made the whole thing flow quite nicely. It was also pretty cool to see how other people photographed similar images, or how many variations on one theme were shown.

The amazing 3-d Holga cake. It was as delicious-tasting as it was good-looking. Also, they had this fabulous mint lemonade... mmm mmm....

The above photo is of me with M. Bryan Thompson. He is a photographer and the owner of Saans. You might notice that he had on a Holga t-shirt under his white button-up. (Also, even though it may not look like it, he's a friendly guy.)

The Holga Show 2010

I didn't mean to keep this all to myself, but I submitted photos and am officially in. I heard over the phone a few days ago that some, if not all of my submissions got into the show, and then today I got word via e-mail that all nine of my photos made it in. Super exciting, right?
I'm not going to spoil your experience of seeing my stuff in the gallery by posting the shots here, so you'll have to go to the HOLGA Show yourself. The show is at the SAANS gallery in downtown SLC, and the opening reception is June 18th from 6-10pm. You're all invited and I'd love to see you there.

-- If you can't make it opening night, however, SAANS is keeping the show up and running for two months, so stop in some other time.
