Did we ever pick a weekend for this? I can't look forward to it until I know when it is!
Wondering the same. 100+ weston prints less than an hour away, I'm sure I'll be there more than once but I'd like to meet up with everyone if I can. Looking forward to it. S
How does this read for a plan for the weekend of March 21-22? Come for all or part of the event. Saturday we meet for lunch at the Bo Long Chinese restaurant where most of us met to go see my show. Directions & time to follow. This is less than a mile from the Cleveland Art Museum. Saturday afternoon I would encourage you to hear “Friedlander Talks”, 2:30 PM, Tom Hinson, Curator of Photography. The museum is open until 5 PM.
If anyone missed my photo show of thirty 7”x17” contact prints of the Ohio & Erie Canal and Environment at Western Reserve Historical Society (10 AM - 5 PM), it has been extended until this summer and is open Saturday across the circle from the Cleveland Art Museum. (You knew I had to mention it.)
Saturday evening we can meet at our house, get take out Pizza and look at photography you bring.
Sunday morning, 9 AM, coffee will be served at the Powers house for conversation.
Sunday the Akron Art Museum is open 11 AM -5 PM for Weston and Friedlander. If you like we can meet for lunch at a Hungarian restaurant near the museum and gorge on Chicken Paprikash or anything lighter that you choose.

Sounds good. That's our bowling week, so we'll have to leave about 2pm or so on Sunday, but we can't wait to see everyone.
I guess I have an excuse to get printing now!
If anyone wants to camp that weekend lets discuss it close to event time. There could be a lot of DEEP MUD and we might want you to camp close to the driveway. On the other hand we have had snow through the first week in April. Camping might be real chancy. We are on the west side of a steep hill and tend to thaw out two weeks after the rest of the neighborhood.

I'm pretty sure I'm in for that weekend - I just have to double check with my dog sitters (the best neighbors ever). Can't wait!!!
Dolly and I went to the Edward Weston exhibit last night. WOW!!!. I thought that it was the traveling one that was in Dayton 3-4 years ago. That one was wonderful. This one is wonderful. They are a different collections, a few overlaps, but not more than 10%. The lighting is great. The spacing is generous. Did I mention that the pictures are wonderful? Oh Great!! There is also what looks like an excellent Weston video going on next door. We only got to see a portion of it because the lecture we had come to hear was starting, but we are going back Saturday.
In honor of Edward and Tina we are going to the exhibit again Valentine’s day and then the Mexican Restaurant we went to with the group in September. I hope Chandler doesn’t show up wanting dinner.
We are looking forward to seeing the the Apug gang in March.
John, Dolly, Savannah and Cindy
Can't wait to see the exhibit, and you all as well. We just made our hotel reservations today.

At last night’s lecture (2/12/2009) they mentioned that there will be an Edward Weston lecture in March given by someone from Bowling Green. Check this link to see speaker and date when they post it. http://www.akronartmuseum.org/calend...t.php?catid=11
"An accompanying award-winning monograph published by Lodima Press contains insightful essays by Sarah M. Lowe and Dody Weston Thompson as well as “his and hers” collectors' prefaces by Hochberg and Mattis. Featuring full-size reproductions and printed in 600 line-screen quadtone on two different paper stocks for maximum fidelity to the originals, it is acknowledged as the most beautiful book ever published on Weston." Akron Art Museum
From the Lodima Press site, "Hardcover Edition: $195 (plus $10 shipping)" I might have to miss this one.
