Shadow Shot Sunday - Opening

Shadow Shot Sunday 2 is back, the theme is simply shadows and we happily comply! 

Last Saturday was an opening of Steampunk (Victorian era futuristic fantasy art) at our favorite venue, Gallery@37 in Derby. For a small gallery, it was packed with visitors - happily the unpretentious gallery was full. Patti even had two photo entries on the wall :)

The outdoor sign for the venue over the tent placed there for the overflow of patrons - nighttime shadows are cool as I don't always associate night and shadows. The view inside was taken during a lull, and shadows are inside too.

An unpretentious gallery, art for the masses...see shadowy art from all about at the fun shadowy SSS2!

I think night time shadows are pretty neat, too. You've done a good job here. So, did Patti win any ribbons with her entries?

Oh, a fun time indeed! And such terrific shadow shots! Like the others, I love the night time shadow shots although they're a lot more elusive the daytime ones! Hope you and Patti have a great weekend, Ralph!!

Hi Ralph! We like unpretentious too. Your Patti pointed us toward one of her artist friends a few weeks ago, one Rich DiCarlo, and he's doing a piece for us now! I like nighttime shadows too...usually don't have my camera with me then though. Happy SSS.

Shadows follow us everywhere. Mine was taken at an art gallery too.

I love your shadows, Ralph.
I know you and Patti had a great time and I can plainly see that you are, indeed, married to an artist.:)

Great shadows - love those night-time ones!

LV said...

No doubt you had no trouble finding shadows there.

Paula Scott said...

Go, Patti! Go, Patti! You must be proud that she has a couple of pieces in that gallery. Congrats! Looks like a really cool art spot.
