    Okay, not too much of a big deal, but it's my first show at the local Dunn Bros near where I work. They emailed me and said they'd like to do a 1 to 2 month show of all my grain silo work from around area near the coffee shop that they feel is a good fit for their store.

    I'm excited to say the least. Now I've got to get the business and logistics aspects figured out.

    well deserved Andrew, the work you've been posting in the gallery deserves to be displayed - and I admit I'm a bit biased as I like the subject matter.
    congrats.

    Excellent! From what I've seen you post in the gallery here, you definitely deserve a chance to exhibit your work.

    Congrats Andrew, you deserve it. I think I have about 3-5 of those silo photos in my "favorites" section as photos to inspire and challenge my own work in terms of perfection. Now just work on getting a show up north in Canada so I can see the actual prints.

    Thanks Thomas. I only found out today about this so I still have to work on the time frames, but it appears they would like me to display work starting May 1st if I can swing it. I have some images ready to matt and frame, but I am not sure if they want bigger than 7x7 on 8x10 paper or not? I could be VERY busy making larger prints if that is the case in addition to matts, and frames over the next few weeks!!! I'll keep you posted of dates etc.

    Thanks Daniel, Guillaume, I might have to start printing in earnest! They want 15 to 20 framed photos! I have them if they want 7"x7"'s printed onto 8x10, but I still need mounts, over matts, and 16x20 frames. If they want 11x14, then I'm in big trouble! I'm paying them a visit to look at the space. Seems like a great opportunity. Time frame will be May 1st through end of June. I can also have a reception private viewing night or two that I will work out the details for. Commission.... they take none, I hang all the images, and leave contact information for buyers to contact me directly. Seems like a win win to me!

    Let us know which Dunn Bros and when. Maybe we could all get together there one evening.

    Also, if you need use of a dry mount press and tacking iron, let me know.
