Nocturne #31

LightBox Photographic — Astoria, Oregon

At the closing party for “Beheld” at HomeSpace in New Orleans, we took the six plates which were hanging there off the wall, zipped them in the portfolio, and slid the portfolio into the back of the already bursting car.  The puppy and I drove from Home Space, twenty-seven hundred miles northwest to LightBox Photographic in Astoria, Oregon.  There, Michael Granger and I slid the portfolio back out of the car, unzipped it, and he selected three of the Nocturnes (One, Twelve, and Thirteen) for an exhibition opening July 14 at the gallery.

Nocturne Number Twelve is sponsored by Claire Cartwright Vaughan of San Antonio.

Nocturne Number Thirteen is sponsored by Mary Grace McAlister of Breckenridge, Colorado.

HomeSpace Gallery New Orleans

In early June we delivered six ( ! ) of the twenty by twenties to Home Space Gallery in New Orleans. Owner Ann, curator Kevin, and resident alpha dog Dot hosted an exhibition named “Beheld” which featured the works of six artists.

This is where we begin having the kind of fun we hoped for when designing the “Two Old Women” project.  Kevin selected Nocturnes One, Two and Four for the exhibition. Those three plates come from our early work in January, before we began to think in terms of “Two Old Women.”

Kevin also selected Nocturnes Eight, Twelve and Thirteen, all of which are sponsored by kind patrons who chose to participate in our benefactor program.

Nocturne Number Eight is brought to us by Elizabeth Whitten Meux of Denton, Texas.

Nocturne Number Twelve is brought to us by Claire Cartwright Vaughan of San Antonio and of Los Novios Ranch, La Salle County, Texas.

Nocturne Number Thirteen is brought to us by Mary Grace McAlister of Breckenridge, Colorado and Wichita Falls.
