AND NOW THE BIG RADIO SHOW NEWS…
I was thrilled to be interviewed about my artwork, for the 2nd time, by renowned herbalist & women’s spiritual teacher/mentor SUSUN WEED on her WISE WOMAN RADIO SHOW!  The interview aired on 9/23 but it’s not too late!  You can hear it on her websites & here are the links to my 1/2 hour interview.  We discuss art & how it relates to both commercial endeavors and spiritual paths!

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:

Sideshows & Spring Art; My Next Exhibits (NJ, MA & Online)!

Hi Everyone! Hope all’s well. I’ve been creating new artwork & preparing for a bunch of new exhibits in NJ & MA, as well as online, so I hope you’ll be able to check some of them out.
Here’s what’s happening:

1. Please join me for my solo B&W photography exhibit, “Journeys in Black & White” (flyer attached) hosted by the beautiful Haven salon in Highland Park, NJ. The opening reception party is Sat. 4/24/10, 7:30pm-10:30pm, 333 Raritan Ave., Highland Park, NJ. There’ll be wine, munchies, music &, of course, a selection of my 35mm B&W travel & cemetery photography. If you’re in the area, you don’t want to miss this unique event!

2. I’m so excited to have photos accepted for the
“Get Your Freak On!” exhibit at Space 242, Boston, MA!
As many of you know, I love Coney Is., side-shows & “uniqueness”; this show is “a visual homage to circus freaks, carnies & sideshow misfits” so I HAD to submit work! I only wish I was able to attend the opening in person, but I have a friend in MA who will be my eyes & ears (thanks again, Caladan folks!!) But if you’re in the Boston area, check out this cool show; opening reception Fri. April 30, 6-8pm. FREE w/ RSVP! Show runs thru May 21, 2010.

3. And for everyone who can’t make it in person to an exhibit,
I have 3 photos in the new ONLINE Caladan Gallery show,
“Elemental Spring”, featuring artists from across the US!
The dates for the on-line posting of this exhibition
are April 1 – April 30, 2010 on http://www.caladangallery.com

4. Last but not least I’ll have a pen & ink/watercolor piece in the
“Spring Song” juried exhibit at the So. Brunswick Arts Commission
Gallery in the So. Bruns., NJ Municipal Bldg., 540 Rt. 522/Ridge Rd.,
Monmouth Junction, NJ.
Opening reception is Tues. April 20, 6:30-8:00pm. Show runs thru June 30.

I appreciate you reading this e-art-update and for checking out the artwork. See ya at the shows!
Take care,
Lauren
