One Week Countdown until Beach Lovers

In just one week, I'll be debuting photos from my series, Beach Lovers, in my first solo show at Ground Floor Gallery. Preparing for this show has meant a roller-coaster of emotions for me and non-stop work, and I am growing more excited by the day. 

Putting together an art show requires patience and thick skin. I have had to wear the hats of artist, publicist, curator, marketing director and social media promoter. All the while, I've had to endure my own self-doubt and I have talked myself off the ledge of canceling all together for fear no one would come. But as the saying goes about art shows, "They always open, " and I am proud and excited about the work I have selected to show next week.

I hope to see you on Wednesday September 9th, at 343 5th Street, Park Slope, Brooklyn, 6-9PM!

Many thanks to Natasha Frisch and Krista Saunda Scenna at Ground Floor Gallery for their advice and support.
