Book Passages Reception was a FUN success

A HUGE thank you to all the people who braved the cold last night and attended the opening reception of my Book Passages Exhibit. It was so much fun and a whole other creative dimension to the work and experience was created by having Chris Flieller from In Tandem Theatre magnificently read each of the Book Passages that were used to create the visual interpretations. The entire event was caught on video so look for some excerpts of the opening to come in the near future.

According to Gallery Curator Miranda Levy over 100 friends, colleagues and fellow art lovers were in attendance through out the evening. I appreciate every ones support for coming out and sharing in this creative journey. If you couldn't get to the opening but would still like to see the show it is on view until April 9th.

If someone would like to see the show on a Saturday just contact me and I will work with Miranda to make it possible.

The Book Passages Exhibit is a photographic journey of conceptual interpretations culminating from brief Book Passages that I asked readers of my blog to send in for this project. This journey began in February of 2009 with a blog post, "What have you read lately".

Twenty passages and a year later I present the exhibit, Book Passages - a visual journey.

Lake Effect interview with Bonnie North

Yesterday I was fortunate to have the opportunity to interview with Bonnie North, Producer of the Lake Effect Program on WUWM-HD 89.7 Milwaukee Public Radio. I arrived right at 9am for my 9 o'clock appointment. I thought I would arrive ten minutes early but the traffic was worse than I thought it would be so close to 9am in the morning. It could have been compounded by the light snow that had been falling most of the morning.

What a professional and kind person Bonnie is. I was extremely nervous not knowing what we would cover in our conversation and not being a big fan of public speaking anyway, she quickly put me at ease. She reminded me that it's nothing more than a conversation among two people and that since it wasn't live we could stop and start at anytime and she could edit in post production.

Lake Effect is a wonderful radio program that consistently covers a wide range of interesting topics from politics to art every weekday from 10am - 11am and reruns at 11pm - 12am. Tune in next week Thursday February 11 when my twelve minute segment with Bonnie airs on Lake Effect. If you are not near a radio but are at your computer you can hear it stream live. Just click on the button on the WUWM 89.7 website. If you are busy working at that time and can't listen (like myself) you can tune in later that evening or wait till it is put into their archives of past shows.

Thanks Bonnie for your interest in my Book Passages series and what turned out to be a fun and memorable half hour.
