Fairyland goes “Glimmerdark”!

If you’re like me, you love fantasy, sci-fi, and to just somehow believe that other worlds do exist containing magical beings and mystical places.  Well, fantasy & Steampunk entrepreneur  Jeff Mach believes it and has helped create these universes here on Earth…and his newest creation is the Faire called GLIMMERDARK!  Here he tells us about it in his own words…
What do you do when you’re ending the world’s largest indoor Renaissance Faire?  When the event and project which have defined your life for literally a decade have lived their course?
You go to Fairyland.
I created Wicked Faire to try to make a place where it was safe for you to be anything.  If you could imagine it, if it worked in your head canon, you were invited here.  If the outside world didn’t understand you, didn’t want you to dress the way you want to dress, didn’t want you to be who and where you were – Wicked Faire was a home.
Glimmerdark is that.  Only on fairy dust.   And fairy dust is pretty much the most potent and transformative element in the world.
Every other Fairy Festival I’ve seen is: “Step into the world of the Fae”.  Glimmerdark is the only one that says, “The Fae want more out of life.  They’re stepping out of Fairyland and we’ve all got this massive hotel for a three day party.
If you check out our entertainment, our entertainment list is absolutely massive.  This is a tremendous festival, and since it’s first-year prices, it’s cheap as fairy dirt (which is just slightly more expensive than regular dirt.)
I’m always looking for new ways to build and use creativity.  Fairyland called.  And I answered.  For more info. and to get tickets, visit https://www.facebook.com/events/1683805541908177/

And here’s a glimpse into Jeff’s Glimmerdark world….

Finally! Pictures from the art opening @ haven!

Sorry it took so long…it’s been a crazy busy month…but I finally had time to upload photos from the opening reception of my solo photography exhibit, “Journeys in B&W”, at the gorgeous haven salon (small “h” on purpose…that’s how the owner spells it! Located in Highland Park, NJ). It was such a great night…one of the best openings to date…many good friends, and many new ones, showed up and so far (the show’s still running) TEN pieces sold!! This show focused on 35mm B&W travel photography I shot in various locations including Scotland, New Orleans, Amsterdam, Prague & Budapest.

The salon was decorated with fantastic, custom floral arrangements and the owner, Carmen, always has the space decorated beautifully with antiques and eclectic collectibles but he had it done to the 9’s that night! It looks as nice and professional as any gallery space! There was also a variety of gourmet snacks and we had to make 3 wine runs!! Always a sign of a successful event, LOL.

I really enjoy exhibiting my work and showing art in alternative locations is a lot of fun and draws new crowds who might never go to a formal gallery event. The show in the salon went so well that I’ve been invited back to do another one this coming Fall. This time I want to incorporate other art forms as well and make it a multi-media event.

Thanks to all who came to opening night for the “Journeys in B&W” show and for those who couldn’t make it, here’s a taste of the evening:
