Farm to Frame

Last night I went to the reception of Farm to Frame, a group art show at the Fallbrook Library.

The show was the brainchild of my friend Carol Zaleski.

I had various people coming up to me the last several days telling me how much they liked my submissions for the show.

This was reassuring because I never quite felt sure that I had nailed the show properly.

It was a nice reception. People had a chance to talk about their work. It was well attended.

Some excellent artists exhibited, I was the lone photographer.

Carol had told me that my work was not quite edgy enough so I put this assemblage piece in called Meat, first applying pasty stars that I bought at the Dollar Tree over Carol Doda's nipples.

My photograph is a riff on the selling of sex as a commodity like meat and sausage in our world.

I didn't think that the puritans would allow it to hang but they did.

The woman next to my artwork went to Berkeley and actually knew Carol Doda.

I got one of the best compliments I have ever received about my work last night, from Noreen.

She said that a lot of people made paintings that looked like photographs, a process she abhors, but that my photos look like paintings and she loves them.

Thank you Noreen!

Carol wanted something more edgy, and you definitely provided that.
And that's one sexy bell pepper.
