Coming in August - Ümla Gallery at Playful Grounds!
I'm super-excited to share a very big announcement with you! Throughout the month of August, I will be displaying my photography at Playful Grounds. In case you're wondering, the lovely folks at Playful Grounds feature different artists, as part of their monthly art openings.
Although my day-to-day focus is on lifestyle family photography, this gallery will be slightly different, as it will feature my more artsy photos. I have already selected the photos which I will include in the gallery, and now I have the fun task of figuring out sizes and display arrangements.
The gallery will feature a few themes, and although there will be some images of people, none of the images will actually feature peoples' faces. This was done deliberately, for artistic purposes. One of the cool things about this gallery is that it will feature some photos that I've taken with my DSLR, some taken with my point-and-shoot camera, and some taken with my iPhone.
I have always been a firm believer that, although having a fancy camera can be a great asset when you know how to use it properly, you can also get some wicked shots with a point-and-shoot and/or a phone camera. Which is why I've chosen to display photos from three different types of cameras.
The iPhone photos have been processed using my two favourite iPhone photo apps: Instagram, and Hipstamatic. If you've been following me on Instagram, you know that love love love posting my iPhone photos on Instagram. I love taking photos, and having a phone camera certainly helps feed my photo cravings.
I am really excited about the August gallery, as it will be my gallery début. For those interested in my work, I also plan on selling prints of the work that I will be displaying at Playful Grounds. I don't plan on having any pre-printed beforehand; rather, they will be made-to-order.
At the end of August, I will be hosting a little soirée at Playful Grounds - a gallery closing party. The party will be taking place on Saturday, August 24th, from 7pm to 10pm, and you are invited! My birthday is on August 22nd (extra points if you guess my age :P), so I guess it doubles as a little birthday fiesta too! And as part of this celebration, I have decided that I wanted to turn the evening into a little fundraiser for one of my favourite local Toronto charities, Second Harvest. They do some amazing work in helping to feed Toronto's hungry and I thought that this would be a great way to give back to the community. Although I haven't sorted out details yet, I do plan on selling tickets to the event (it will be a small charge). Details re: purchasing tickets will be posted in the coming weeks. The majority of the proceeds of the ticket sales will be going to Second Harvest. I will also be inviting a speaker from Second Harvest to come talk about the work that they do.
I really hope that you can come join the party! There will be food, drinks, great company, and art - all for a great cause!
