    I've been invited by Gene Laford; director of the VPC in Sringfield, Mass. to have a show. I'll be showing 25 prints. Ten of which are of NYC on the last of the Ilford Matte Gallerie Paper and the remaining fifteen of Florida done on AZO.
    The Valley Photo Center is located at 1500 Main Street; Tower Square 2nd floor. The show will run from April 3 to May 4, 2007
    There will be a reception Thursday April 12 from 5-8 PM. So come on down and say hello if you are in the area.
    Best, Peter Schrager

    Peter,

    That's GREAT! Wish I could be there for the reception, but it's tax season :sad:

    Best,

    Peter -

    Congratulations!

    Don't think I can make the reception, but I may try to drive over later in the month to see the show.

    thanks boys and girls!!

    Jeremy;Bob;David;Drew;Louie;Suzanne;and John-thanks a heap for your support
    and encouragement. Even if you can't make the the reception do go see the show. I tried to let Gene give me a retrospective since I also have quite a few Platinums; but 25 was the limit.
    Thanks for the shout-out!!
    Peter

    Good for you, Peter! We have a reception at the school the same day or else I'd come to your opening.
    Another example of Gene's impeccable taste, if you ask me.

    Ok, so has anybody seen Peter's show? Any comments? Peter was kind enough to send me an invitation, but I won't be up that way until after the show is closed.

    Peter, only you could send me an invitation without postage and have it arrive without the postman looking for $.24 :smile:

    John-that's quite histerical!! I'll gladly refund you the $.24 if you make it to the show!! All kidding aside the opening is this thursday night. As far as I know we're supposed to have some weather so it just might be me; Gene; and my 86 year old mom that I'm dragging up from Florida... as they say in show biz-come on down!!
    Best, Peter

    Just wanted to tell folks to see Peter's show if you get a chance. I went to the opening night and Pete's images resonate with me a lot. He's too modest - well, maybe not - a photographer! I don't know Peter, there seems to be a bit of subjects to photograph in Florida and your images of the subjects are fantastic.

    I also like the small 6x6 sizes of most of the images. It forces you to be more intimate. I like the show and again people, go see it! His images are juxtaposed to the other side of the gallery where HUGE images overwhelm your senses.

    Regards, Art. (Your Mom's a blast!)

    Peter, huge regrets from Bruce and Richard and I. As you recall the weather was just not cooperating and it was much worse here than there. I think we got another foot of snow that day.

    Dang!

    Let me know if you are going to be in the area and I could open up the VPC if you are there after normal hours... and maybe you can pick up some photos left behind. :wink:
