I’m a member of the Foyer Gallery which is a group of 26 artists (9 of us are photographers). Exhibitions at the gallery roll over every three weeks with three types of shows. Most are Group Shows where each member has 2 to 4 pieces of work depending on size. Focus Shows have three or four of the members participating and each artist has 1/3 to 1/4 of the gallery space. Each year we have one or two Solo Shows during which the gallery is dedicated to the work of just one member. I expect to be contributing to all of the Group Shows and one of the Focus Shows titled “As Is” in October.
Here is the schedule of shows for 2015:
- Art Beat* – Jan. 6th – Jan. 25th. – Group Show.
