News: Pictures at an Exhibition

I'm having an exhibition of my pictures of stringed instruments at Mission City Coffee Roasting in Santa Clara, CA. The show opens with a reception Sunday May 31 from 2PM to 5PM and runs until Saturday June 28.

The venue is ideal for my pictures because it hosts many acoustic music events each month and is well known to local musicians and instrument makers.

Charles,

I have watched your project gain in stature and breadth because of your commitment. Having an actual date for an exhibit certainly gets you off your chair to complete the prints, something few of us do unless we are commercial photographers.

This is excitement that we all share with you. An edition in B&W might unify the different images.

Hi Charles
I wish I could attend! I have always enjoyed your "string things"
Congrats for the expo, whishing you the best!

BTW another vote for the 1st posted here, the colors are soooo subtle and delicate, I wonder why one would prefer a B&W conversion!

Thanks Asher

The pictures have been printed, matted, and framed, ready for hanging on the 30th.

I've printed Mandolin 1620 as B&W and it loses some of the subtlety. I don't have the capability to make good B&W prints so I haven't looked at making prints of the others. Perhaps some experimentation is in order.
