We’re doing it. Yes, we’re really doing it! Kelley Alexander and Miriam Phields (me) are having our first solo (or is it duo) photography exhibition, entitled HIDING IN PLAIN SIGHT. The opening reception for the photography exhibition will be held on Friday, September 5 at the Fulton County West End Performing Arts Center in Atlanta, GA. We’ve imagined this day for each of us, but I’m not sure that we imagined that we would share the moment as co-exhibitors. Given that our interests are similar but our photography is not, we enjoyed the challenge of creating an exhibition with a common theme for both our work. We really appreciate having friends like Connie G. Cross who encourage us to show our artwork and create opportunities to do so. Here’s the flyer for the exhibition and opening reception with all the details. Thanx to Michi for creating this great postcard/flyer for us.

We’re working hard to get everything ready and framed perfectly. I love cutting the mats with precision and lining up the photographs behind the mat window just so. Patience, good measuring skills, and reading glasses are requirements for this job. I’d like to give a special shout out to Barbara C. G. for teaching me how to cut mats and other framing techniques.

The last part is connecting the hanging wire to the frame. This requires special care not to stab oneself with the wire. Don’t you love how I accessorized with yellow framer’s tape?

With intrigue, I watch Kelley put the finishing touches on her mixed media masterpieces, adding a little of this and a little more of that. Just when I think she has finished, she puts a little more secret sauce on it. Please pretend you don’t see the AARP water bottle in the background. It was free, okay.

Well I hope I’ve peaked your interest in our exhibition. Please come and join us at the opening reception. We’d love to meet you.
