Making some changes

Chris Lane / New Stuff! / / 0 Comments

I am working on getting a new look to the website. I have been meaning to do this for quite some time, but 2015 was mega busy. 2016 likely will be as well. You will notice the change first in the blog section, but I intend to make it go site wide soon. I hope to make some other changes here and there and hopefully it won’t take me too long this time.

In the meantime, here is a picture of a bottle opener that I am attaching to a six-pack crate I am making for a client and friend.

I have pretty big news that I’ve kept under wraps for quite a while now and I am ready to announce it. On September 5th, my solo exhibition titled “Unseen Splendor” will be opening at the River Walk Artists Gallery in East Grand Forks, ND. For directions, times, and phone number of the gallery, click here. The exhibition is a series of macro flower photographs. I have 18 photos on display for you to view and purchase for your own art collection. I’ll post a few for you in this post so you can get an idea of what they look like.

Artist’s Statement

Always seen as a natural form of beauty, flowers are typically viewed from a certain, comfortable distance. This series brings you into a secret, more intimate place, where you see minute details of flowers, as captured by macro photography. Also, most people only focus on a small subset of flowers in the world, skipping over everything not deemed desirable. These images, primarily of so-called weeds, are meant to show the inherent beauty of seemingly unnoticed things in the world. These images will be in a limited print run of 15 prints for each image.

I will also be on site for the Art & Wine walk on Saturday, September 20th from around noon until 5 or so. I hope to see you there or at least that you can make a visit to the gallery to see the large prints. The prints are 16 x 20 and 14 x 11, so they are pretty large. And they are on metallic paper, so they really look fantastic. Enjoy the show!
