I did a dreadful job with photographing the work up in the show, but I will provide a link to his website as well as one to the gallery so you, dear reader, can get your heart-full and head-full through their eyes and cameras.
Malynda Forcier does a lovely job of describing the show in her press release, as well:
“The Gatehouse Gallery is pleased to announce their latest show,”Nature’s Reflection” by award-winning local photographer Dave Sordi. This Month, Dave Sordi’s love for the White Mountains is on display in this exceptional body of works. Come see one of only two prints to ever be made of MWV Photo Contest Winner, “Mt. Washington Citadel”. Dave’s works capture, bottle up and preserve the essence of what it is like to really experience the region and it’s mystical natural places. Let Dave bring you to places that will enchant you, change you and leave you in awe.”
Attendance was light, but most people think of opening receptions at galleries as stuffy events in sometimes claustrophobia-producing environments. When the weather was the first really pleasant in almost a week, I can hardly blame the people who would have rather sat outside, drinking wine and having a casual gathering with a few friends. Since the Gatehouse Gallery is a secondary structure on the Forcier’s property, her opening receptions are designed to be more casual and they are more like the where some would have liked to have been than the standard.
Another great part of the set up, is they are not afraid to put work outside during the reception. Food and beverages are also outside, so viewers are encouraged to see all there is to offer.
I did shoot a few pictures at the reception that turned out well.
The full line-up for the season is not yet listed on the gallery website so…
October-“Witches’ Brew”, Daryl-Ann Dartt Hurst (yes, me), Malynda Forcier and Misty Maybe. (Shameful self-promotion-oh well).
November and December are holiday group shows months.
