Making prints of your best images is a great way to take full control over how your photographs are viewed. Finding good locations to show the work is often a challenge, but sometimes you may have more opportunities than you can handle.
I was reviewing the pictures that are posted on my web site and counted nearly 3000 images, mostly of New England, but also beyond. A lot of pictures, but only a tiny fraction of all the images

The Art Walk
Keene, New Hampshire's Annual Art walk began this weekend.

Pocket Full of Rye
On any day, Keene's Main Street is a treasure, but for one week every spring the downtown turns into an expansive strolling art gallery. For this week the local businesses surrender their windows to local artists. The range of art is always amazing, including, painting, sculpture, wood working, weaving and of course, marvelous photography (me). What better way to spend a warm evening than to stroll among the art and then settle in to an outdoor table for a relaxing dinner at one of the many downtown restaurants. Not surprisingly I will be displaying my photographs at the Pocket Full of Rye. I am lucky to be a regular at this great shop, but the Art Walk gives me a chance to display some new work in a featured location. Come by and check it out.

Prime Roast Show
Actually the Art Walk is just part of a very busy weekend for me. Friday morning I had to take down a show at Kristen's Bakery in the morning and then set up my window at Pocket Full of Rye in the afternoon. Early Saturday morning I hung a month long show in Prime Roast Cafe on the other side of main street. Close to Central Square, Prime Roast is a peaceful and inviting refuge from the bustle of downtown Keene. The display walls are equipped with an easy hanging system and are nicely illuminated. It's great to have two wonderful places to hang. It is always about showing the work, but times like this can get a bit crazy. The big challenge was to find the work to display. I produced 8 new prints to show at the Art Walk, but with 16 pictures there and 10 at Prime Roast, I felt a bit stretched. Oh, and on Saturday afternoon, I brought 10 coastal pictures to a new gallery in Salem, MA.

It takes great faith and considerable guts to commit to a "bricks and Mortar" gallery, but if anybody can make it work, it will be Jeff and Lisa. I'm just grateful for another wonderful place to show my tangible work.
