Hey St. Louis locals! I’m excited and proud to announce that my father will be showing his photographs in his second art fair this summer. Find him at the Art & Air show this weekend in Webster Groves, MO. Each year, over 100 juried artists from across the country participate in the art fair. I’ve watched my dad work hard at shooting for years, and in the past couple of years he’s been able to take his photography to another level. He’s been in a few art shows now and is a member of The Gateway Gallery in Clayton. I think this art fair, by far, is going to be one of his top events so far. Check out more of his work at www.cavuphoto.com, or stop by Art & Air this weekend (Friday starting at 6pm through Sunday ending at 5pm).
>For those able to make it, Webster University’s May Gallery will be featuring a group show of a photo club Chicago trip on the smaller wall. Latent Image (the university’s photo club) sponsored a trip to the big city in the Spring of 2010. The opening night is October 29, between 5pm and 7pm. Wish I could be there, but here’s a sneak peak anyway:
>The end of the year in The May Gallery at Webster University is always reserved for the Senior Show. This year, “Exposed” features a group of 16 senior photography majors, which makes for a variety of work to display.
The show opened last Friday, May 7, the night before graduation. A big thanks to everyone who was able to make it, and for those who couldn’t or haven’t yet, the show hangs until the end of July.
My series on dashboards seemed like an appropriate – and fun – final show to work on. It started with two photos that I took on two separate road trips. We spend so much time driving, that whatever sits in front of us on the dashboard inevitably has a story behind it. My red bull has been in my car since the day I turned 16, and I started to always notice what people had on their dashboards or hanging on their mirrors. I hope to continue this series for a long time to come.
