May 07, May 17

These are important dates for me this month. And here's why:

On May 7th*, this coming Saturday, I have been invited to participate in a local Avenues art show. I will be displaying ten of my black and white photographs from The Great Salt Lake Portrait Series. I have been going mad trying to pull everything together in time for this event.

This free evening will be from 6:00-9:00 pm at the LDS church building on the corner of 2nd and J Street in Salt Lake City. I have heard that live jazz music will play from 6:00-8:00 followed by a harpist from 8:00-9:00. Also, light refreshments will be served. So if you are in the area, please come and enjoy an evening of local art!

On May 17th, a Tuesday, I launch my online shop where I will be selling prints of my Great Salt Lake photography. (!!!). Mostly my black and white work will be for sale, but there will be a few color prints available. The process to open shop has been more involved and time consuming than I had imagined, plus I become OCD and get hung up on all the details to figure out, and there are so many details! But it's finally coming together and more info about the shop will be shared as we get closer to the 17th. And actually, it feels great to have a deadline, though there is still a lot to do pre-launch.

Wish me luck!

*May 7th also marks my 9th anniversary of starting my landscape design business. There is much to celebrate this weekend!
