Exhibition! Success! & Thankyou!

I type this as I finish the first day of manning the gallery this weekend. In front of me are walls full of art and inspiration. Four different unique approaches, views and finishes. Four different people who draw on life experiences, passions and love of sharing enable me to experience something that has changed my photographic vision looking forward.

I find it hard to put into words the emotions, anxiety, stress and almost naked feeling taking part in an exhibition puts you in. The fear that everybody/nobody will like your work.. the whispers.. the looks.. and the potential for nobody turning up is enough to make your stomach turn.

But the moment your friends and family start turning up on opening night.. seeing your work framed and up in the spot light on the bright white walls.. those fears turn into excitement and a craving for nice white wine.

The opening night was a blast.. with so many friendly faces and friends that I have accumulated from so many different walks of life. I admit I put myself out there, and in the process meet so many awesome people and you all mean a lot to me, and contribute a lot to helping me develop not only as a person, but as a photographer.

So it is here I sit about to close up for the day.. saying farewell to the last people to walk through and I have a massive smile on my face.

If you get a chance to drop in before the show closes.. please do. It runs until the 11th of Feb at the Salerno Gallery, 70 Glebe Point Rd, Glebe.
Till next time..

  • Congratulations. I love the thrill of exhibitions. We are so used to sending off our files/prints to people and not having that immediacy of the response. Nothing like standing there in front of your work in a gallery! So freakin scary and yet quite rewarding. Post some more pics!
