There’s a new miniature show that just opened, and it just so happens to be local to me, and have one of my pieces in it!
I found out about the Miniature Marvels show on Sunday, February 24th and immediately got an idea for it. I’m typically pretty against creating new work for shows, but was passionate about making this particular piece. I’ve never felt I could just print photos small for a miniature based show, and am not a miniaturist per say, so I just don’t enter them. This idea however allowed me to combine actual tangible miniatures with my miniature diorama photography.
We’re so excited for our good friends, Amanda and Jennifer. Remember our interview with Amanda Lenhardt about her self-portraits? If you don’t, read it quickly here.
Not only is she an uh-mazing photographer, but she’s pretty darn creative, especially with her big senior project that was featured in the Southlight Gallery, along with many other artists including the talented Jennifer Wells for April’s Artwalk.
We haven’t had the chance to interview Jennifer yet but we can assure you it’s on our lists of people to meet. We have featured some of her shots on our #igersjax posts. Look for it here. We did say talented didn’t we? Well check out her website here.
Artwalk this month was more than a little wet, but going to Southlight to see these ladies made it much brighter. If you see their work in any galleries let us know. Heck, you may…
Tonight is the opening of the UNF photo show at Southlight Gallery!
Please come out if you get the clance.
