A Successful Show Opening

Several hundred people attended the Fourth Annual Photo Show for Wing Young Huie's photo salon Saturday night.  Eighteen artists showed their work, ranging from portraits, macro images, travel photography, streetscapes, and experimental work.  The mixture of styles and approaches was refreshing, and everyone seemed to enjoy the art, refreshments, conversation, and fellowship.  

I displayed two photos exploring the theme of layered reality (looking through a scene into another, reflections, etc.).  I'm intrigued by this idea because of the inherent ambiguity it can introduce and the juxtaposition of things that can be jarring or unusual.  The two photos are the Jensen showroom and Europa Cafe images shown in the Denmark posting below.

Eighteen individual artists showed their work at the Salon show this year.

Wing's studio is known as the Third Place Gallery in Minneapolis.

Fourth Annual Photo Show

Wing Young Huie's Photo Salon

The opening show is 6-9 pm, Saturday, October 13, at Wing's Studio, 3730 S. Chicago in Minneapolis.

A couple of my works are displayed, but there is much more of interest.  I have some wonderful colleagues. You will be greeted warmly, offered refreshments, and enjoy the creative work of the 18 other photographers.

Georg Jensen showroom and cafe, Copenhagen

Daughter and family are now settled in Copenhagen for a few years and I'm sure we'll be back to visit many times.  Bikes, sailing, open faced sandwiches, wind farms, rationality: Denmark.  I'm sure there's a dark side somewhere.  I'll let you know when I find it.

Church cemetery near Hotel Glymur on the Hvalfjordur (whale fjord)

Cemetery fenceline on the Hvalfjordur

Cattle, sheep, and Icelandic horses abound

Horses are small and short-legged, but hardy

Iceland is a hotspot for volcanoes, geysers, and hot springs

Scene at Arbaejarsafn (an historic farm in Reykjavik)

A Reykjavik bar and grill

Walkers, bicyclists, and skateboarders only on Reykjavik's main streets

A modern interpretation of gothic architecture, the Hallgrimskirkja  is the dominant church in Rekjavik, here seen inside the clock tower

We visited Iceland for a few days and found it entrancing.  Its landscape is volcanic and bleak, its parliament goes back 1100 years, and its people are hardy and friendly.  The capital, Reykjavik, is small but remarkably cosmopolitan.  Our travel plans have us going to Scandinavia a few times over the next three years, so we'll be back to Iceland to explore some more.

Los Angeles

Walt Disney Concert Hall

Walt Disney Concert Hall

California Plaza Buildings

On a visit to Los Angeles recently we got a chance to tour Frank Gehry's Walt Disney Concert Hall and other modern landmarks in beautiful downtown LA.  These photos illustrate the sleekness of some of the many new architectural masterpieces in town.  OK, LA is more complicated than this, but you'll just have to wait for the other shoe to drop.
