Art Opening by Anna Peters-Wehking
I want to share some news about a very exciting, very big show that I have coming up: Continental Breakfasts: A Three-year Photographic Collaboration.
For just shy of three years, my friend Lisa and I have each posted one photo a day from our mornings to our blog, Continental Breakfasts, from opposite sides of the continent. Its now been well over 1000 consecutive days, and we decided its finally time to take it to the walls. Our show will feature all three years worth of photos- totaling over 2,000 images. We are very grateful to The Yards Collaborative Art Space for hosting this exhibit.
Continental Breakfasts: a three year photographic collaboration
OPENING: Saturday December 1st, 6-10 pm
The Yards Collaborative Art Space
50-52 Public Market (upstairs from Flour City Bread and Java’s)
Rochester NY 14609
Here’s the event on Facebook
The show will also be open market hours through January 12th: Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, 10am-2pm; and by appointment as well.
Lisa and I met in January 2010 when I was visiting Rochester. Lisa showed me the book A Year of Mornings, and upon discovering how much we had in common- especially our mutual love of both farming and photography- we decided to take on a similar project for ourselves.
Lisa is involved in all manner of art, community and farming projects, based in Rochester and surrounding area. We’ve only seen each other in person once in the three years we’ve been doing this. They have been very rich years for both of us. The photos cover it all: lots of travel and adventure, major life events both trying and great, and plenty of simple ordinary days. The last few years have seen me move several times, travel extensively in BC, Ontario and my recent move to Northern California. I will be returning to Rochester for the opening, and we are both so very excited to share our three years of photos with you. The prints will also be for sale by request.
It would be an honor to see you at the opening.
