Windows, Gates, Doors ... on exhibit
I've been meaning to add at least one post here to promote tonight's "Windows, Gates, Doors: Portals to Historic Indy," which is part of the citywide First Friday Art Walk observation. The WGD show will be at the Indiana Landmarks Center, 1201 Central Ave., in Indianapolis, and tonight's Art Walk festivities run from 6 to 9 p.m.
At WGD, 13 members (myself included) of the Indy Meetup Photo Club will be displaying images depicting the theme subjects in images taken during photo excursions in the core areas of Indianapolis. The first link in the lead paragraph of this post takes you to the event's promotional page on Facebook. That page includes detailed information about the show, a few sample pictures by other photographers ... and mentions that if you cannot attend tonight's First Friday event, the exhibit will remain up and accessible to visitors through November and during the Landmarks Center's normal business hours, which are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays.
With this post, I include samples of a gate, door and window image that I'll be displaying in the exhibit. All three are among my newest photographs -- taken within the past month.
The gate and door are both on the grounds of the old governor's mansion at approximately 43rd and Meridian streets in Indianapolis (this is about three to four blocks south of -- and on the opposite side of the street from -- the grounds of the governor's current residence, which is at 46th and Meridian). The current owners of the former governor's home were receptive to the request to photograph on the grounds.
The doors are from St. Mary's Catholic Church at Vermont and New Jersey streets in downtown Indianapolis.
This will be the second time the club has exhibited at this newly renovated facility. Last November, club members showed photographs taken during a summer 2011 project to photo document the revitalized Old Northside Neighborhood of Indianapolis. It's hoped that we can make this November First Friday arrangement between the club and the Landmarks Center work for years to come.
Hope to see you tonight!
