Photo Exhibit at In Good Company
Opening night, November 7th, of the Jackson Camera Club’s exhibit at the restaurant, In Good Company, was exciting. Approximately fifty amazing photos (five of which are mine) were prominently displayed throughout the dining room and lobby. Several of the artists shared a wonderful meal and were available to discuss their photographs with the other diners. I personally recommend the salmon with wild rice.
Diners can be seen browsing throughout the restaurant, often making a purchase before dessert. The restaurant requests that the acquired art be left on display for the full length of the show, usually three weeks.
The exhibit offers the opportunity to share my photographic art and to show the amazing effects that can be created with a camera and an imagination. The digital era has truly opened up this art form.
Kate Manville-Schwartz is the Gallery Coordinator and was there to help with opening night. As well as being involved in the Jackson art scene, Kate taught art to young children in China. I asked how the restaurant became involved with the local art community. I was told, they wanted to give local artists a place to showcase their work. Artists have been booked for the next year and the management at In Good Company is looking at several methods of displaying the works of art.
The Photo Exhibit will run until December 5, 2013. Information about each photograph and the artist is displayed beside each piece. The photographs are available for purchase by contacting either the management of the restaurant or by contacting the photographer. In Good Company is located at 9039 US-127, just north of Jefferson Road, in Clarklake, Michigan.
