Members of the Indiana Photographic Society, another photo club I belong to, have a second chance to get exposure for their "Heart and Soul" images. On a First Friday art walk night this past Friday in Fountain Square, the club opened a two-month-long exhibit in which the photos are perched atop the book stacks lining the main room of the Indianapolis-Marion County Public Library branch right at Fountain Square.
We don't have nearly as many spaces in the library as we did for our "Through the Lens: Heart and Soul" exhibit that ran from April 9 to the end of May at the Garfield Park Arts Center, but we each got to display four images (I'd had eight on display at GPAC). We used images from the GPAC display for the Fountain Square exhibit.
Friday was opening night of the display, which runs through the end of August. The photos in this post are from Friday's opening reception at the library. A nice twist to the reception for this show was the ambiance music, provided by club member Dave Wensits, who played acoustic guitar and sang various folk songs. That's Dave performing in the top picture and the one immediately below. The top photo is a perspective shot that also shows some of the visitors (including club member Albert at far left) enjoying the entertainment, and, in the background, a visitor checking out some of our images atop the book stacks.
