I am one of two freshman in the show which was juried by our artist in residency, Kerry Skarbakka. He gave a lecture on Thursday about his current photography work. Despite having a lot to do, I was able to attend the afternoon session held in the gallery and took some interesting notes. There is more regarding his discussion on the Baum Gallery Blog.

I want everyone to come to the opening this coming Thursday, if you can.
Oh, and as of now, "e" has been selected for the most popular. Thanks for the votes.
