This year Distinction Gallery decided to create a show that featured cellphone photography. The show would be juried by the notable Joseph Bellows (gallery owner and art dealer). This was a chance to present cellphone photography as a serious art form. On a whim, I decided to submit several of my cellphone pics. I love playing around with the Instagram and Hipstamatic Apps on my phone, so many of my photos have crazy filters on them. To my surprise two of my photos where chosen to be exhibited in the show!
As you can see here, these are the two photographs that I will be exhibiting in “The Prodigy Show: Hipstamatic Addict Insane” at Distinction Gallery. The photographs look even better after I have famed and matted them. If you would like to check out the show to see my work and a group of other talented cellphone photographers, stop by Distinction Gallery, Saturday, April 13 from 6-10pm. That is when they will have their Opening Reception, there will also be live music and complimentary beer and wine. But if you can’t make it to the Opening, the exhibit will be displayed in the gallery from April 13 – May 4, so stop by anytime!
Soooo, whaddya think, should I stick to painting? Or is cellphone photography my next calling?
