    Well, as y'all know, I own a coffee shop which doubles as an art gallery. I book various artists to come and show their art, painters and photographers alike.

    I have worked hard to book artists for the remaining year and recently, one of them decided not to exhibit due to 'personal issues'. So it happens that it's supposed to open on the last day of June! What timing, right??

    I have tried to call various remaining artists to see if I can push their shows closer to end of June, to no avail. At this point I started fretting and worrying, until my wife told me "why don't you put an exhibit of your works together?" That being said, I realized I had plenty of BW photos of a local landmark, an old abandoned gold mine which I visit often with my 4x5. All I needed is printing them. So, for the next three some weeks I will be focusing on printing all the needed pictures, also writing a short essay about the gold mine and have a go with the show.

    People, wish me luck!... My first exhibit ever and it sort of scares me...

    Best way to do it right there. Throw your own out there as a stopgap to keep the show running, I don't see much possibility for failure, in fact it may prove benifitial to your coffee house and the shows you hold.

    Best of luck.

    I doubt luck will have anything to do with it. The show will be amazing! Will also give me even more reason to cruise down there. PM me if you need help in any way shape or form.

    Love & Bass

    good luck!!! Wow sounds like a great coffee shop you have there.

    Don't forget that your encyclopedia worth of knowledge about antique cameras might also be an interesting addition to your show.... at least for me it would be...

    Espresso business is going well, I thrive on other people's addiction to caffeine. ;)

    Hey, Sedona's great! Bring cameras, you will not be disappointed. It's about an hour and a half N of Phoenix. There are other places to see, if you come this way. Just S of Sedona (30 min. or so) there is the town of Jerome, a must see. Also, near Sedona there are the Hidden Ruins, also pretty spectacular.

    And while in Phoenix, I know this incredible coffee shop... :lol:

    Let me know when you're coming.
