The Bloomingdale Park District Museum's exhibit "Let There Be Light" opened today, but the best time to see the exhibit will be Friday night, January 16, 2015 from 6 - 8 pm. That is when the complimentary Artists Reception will be held - plenty of food, drink, entertainment, beaming photographers, and wonderful photographic artwork will be in abundance. Juror Richard Ainsworth will be there to hand out ribbons and talk about his selections.
The photo above is a sneak peak of me checking out the exhibit this morning; shown with entries from my light-painting photography collection, right next to some of my favorite works from photographer friend Tammy Caltagirone. Throughout the two galleries, I was delighted to see entries from many other friends as well, including Al DaValle and Jim Hojnacki; MAPS members Mary Mehl, Diana Chrisman, Tim Rex, and Cora Jacobs; and fellow fotoMuses Noriko Buckles, Anne Frantzen, Janice Henry, and Judy Kinal.
I hope to see you there, Friday night. It is close, it is warm, it will be friendly and fun. The Museum is located at 108 2nd Street, Bloomingdale, IL 60108. Click here for a map and directions.
p.s. When you are there, don't forget to check the Bin for matted/unframed works by the many of the photographers in the exhibit. There are a few of my "Delicate Beauty" pieces, including my newest "Preening Egret."
