Fremont Bridge, study 9
Alright, I promised more details on the Bridgetown showing, so here they are.
The show is up for the month of February at The City Club of Portland, which is located in downtown Portland at SW 9th and Washington. I am not hosting an opening or closing for this show but you are welcome to visit and see the show during the City Club's office hours which run Monday - Friday 9am to 4:30pm.
The best times to go though are before 11am or after 2pm as part of the show is hanging in their commons room which is where they have frequent meetings. You are welcome to go during the meetings, but will be restricted to seeing the portion of the show hanging in their hallway.
Phew. Get all that? If not, you can contact Amy Harris at City Club either through e-mail (email@example.com) or by phone: 503-228-7231 x100 to check on whether a meeting is scheduled on a day you want to come by and see the work.
If you miss this show, fear not, I am not planning on making this the only showing. In fact, my next target for the show when it comes down from City Club is City Hall. I have yet to contact them, but I have seen other shows there before and I think it would be a great venue, appropriate combination of subject matter and place. If that actually comes to fruition, I will certainly let all you know.
Right now I am just sort of catching my breath as this has been quite an undertaking. It is easy to look at the work, see the show or flip through the book and not realize how much effort went into making this happen. But it was a good investment of energy. Still, even I am just a bit worn out from it. Very pleased, but a bit worn.
Anyway, I like this image. It suits the theme of this series well, the many purposes and functions that bridges take on. I must say, that after the St. Johns, I think wandering around and under the Fremont is my second favorite bridge to be around.
And before I go, one more reminder that you can preview the Bridgetown book over on my profile. If you want to see the whole thing you have to either A) buy it from Blurb B) wait til I get a publisher to pick it up and then it will be everywhere or C) come by Blue Moon Camera, I'll be keeping a copy on hand to show people who care to take the time to look.
