January Updates

Hello Friends,

It’s a new year and I have been very busy since the last email update in December.

First, I want to invite you all to attend the Classic Photographs Los Angeles fair during the weekend of January 30 and 31st. The Alan Klotz Gallery will be exhibiting a few of my prints and they will have a stack of my new books!

New books? That’s right! I recently published my first book of photographs. They will be available to purchase for $20 from my new web store or from the Alan Klotz Gallery booth at Classic Photographs Los Angeles.

But that’s not the only book project I am a part of. A brief essay of mine will be published in the International Photography Annual 3. This third edition of the INPHA is a 132-page hardcover publication that includes 70 works by 54 artists from 5 countries. Click here to pre-order at a 10% discount.

If that wasn’t enough, I am the special guest in the first episode of Real Art…Real Talk, a YouTube program that focuses on thoughtful dialog about contemporary visual art. I can be seen reviewing the Mark Jenkins exhibition at the Fabien Castanier Gallery in Los Angeles by click this link here.

If you’re on social media check out my Instagram, Tumblr and/or my Facebook artist page to see a new image daily.

Thank you for supporting me and I hope you all have a great new year.

Best regards,

Andrew

I don't believe in perfection.

I don't believe in perfection.

I don't believe in perfection. When I hear the word I am suspicious of hubris. Instead I am interested in the beauty of imperfection.

I hope you’ve all been keeping cool because August has been slow and the heat’s been miserable.

I’m very excited because I’ve been preparing for a big September. Artwork has been packed; Fed Ex numbers have been recorded, and I’m looking forward to some great opportunities. More news will come next month but until then…

The gallery is open Wednesday through Saturday 12:30 to 5 PM. I’m at the gallery every Wednesday for the rest of this month so stop by and I’ll give you a personal tour. stepForward will be on display until Saturday, September 5 when there will be a closing reception party.
