Tomorrow night from 7-10 we are having an art opening at Photoworks. We will be featuring work as seen in our latest Zine Photoworks 6. Most of the photographers will be present. There will be the usual red and white beverages served along with some simple Trader Joe’s snack fare, and maybe a homemade dish or two as well. And That’s All Folks! I am hoping that some of the 169 people I invited on Facebook will make it. Currently the number stands at 33, but I am confident that the event will be a success despite the fact that we sit on an undefined stretch of Market St. that no one perceives as a destination. If I named the area at Market and Church ( called it Murch maybe) would that make us cool? Maybe a DJ blaring electronica would entice people to come and see these photos. I guess there are many options on a Friday night in this town,
and we do not have a Ritual Coffee Roaster embedded in the lobby. Actually, we don’t really even have a lobby. How do I get one of those outdoor bike rack cafe thingies with a dumpster full of succulents? Then when the crowd swells people can spill over to the photoworks promenade.
Lastly, how does one spread the word? Of my 2000 Twitter followers, I think 1500 live in Alaska. Someone tell my story in The Fecal Italic, or tumble me, foursquare my shit G. I want to be in the Best Of The Best Of The Best. Alas, we will proceed with humility and sans fanfare, and just say COME TO THE SHOW THE PHOTOS ARE GREAT.
