    Too bad. I like both their work, although very different in approach. They share similar qualities; dedication, and being true to their vision. Best to Monty with his show.
    Regards,

    Wow, thanks for posting this. It would be great to see this, but I'm not sure I'll be able to make it. I kick myself for not knowing who he was last year, when they had an exhibit of his work in Kansas City.

    BTW who is Monty M.? A google search doesn't net me anything.

    Damn... I don't think I can swing it out there in time. We'll see. I might try. Thanks, Merg.

    Thanks for the heads up Merg! I hadn't heard about this. Hope to take the train down in a couple weeks.

    I went to see this today. It's a very nice collection. 74 photographs -- I've listed the names below. A few of the prints really lept out at me, particularly the abstracts. The photos are exhibited fairly well, but I was distracted by lighting glare at times.

    I understand that all of the prints are from the sole collector that bought B. Weston's whole collection years back. Prices range from $4,000 to $20,000, with most in the $6,000-$8,000 range. Photos from his San Francisco series are priced at the high end of the range. I'm no collector, but some of the prints seem to offer a compelling investment case.

    Go see the show if you can. Who knows when they'll be back on the East Coast. I'll be going again this week or next for sure.

    All the best,
    Leo
