Preparing for an art show


Having an art show in a little over a week at my library is feeling unreal to me now. This is maybe because I'm long finished with making all the pictures, and I'm a little uncertain about the hanging and the availability of the displays my pictures will be going on. There is a great deal of informality about this art show, which is somehow more like permission for an art display. And yet at the same time I have fifty plexiglass frames to prepare for hanging all while I'm at the library- somewhere in-between doing my job. These frames all come covered in a protective film that's a challenge to peel off, and I've barely begun that process. Plus, halfway through the show I'm going to be switching out all 50+ of the first photographs.

I realize that I have been showing you here all my revised Library Fiction pictures, but I only started showing here my Library Co-workers' Daemon pictures towards the end of that project. Most of them I haven't shared on clerkmanifesto yet. So here is a selection of some. I'm not a hundred percent clear on what has and what hasn't been shown in this space, so please forgive me if you see one of these pictures and it's your second time. All I can say is: if that happens, just shut your eyes quick.

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
