Sorry it's been a while since I've posted! What with the auction we just wrapped up and all, it's been hectic around here to say the least. But this post is about the successful photography show we had at the end of last month. Due to overwhelming response, it's exhibit has been extended for another week!

It was a first for Gallery One, in that it highlighted three photographers from the Cleveland area; George Shuba, Jim Ptacek and Gallery One owner, Alan Brown. Their subjects varied. George provides a wonderful Cleveland rock 'n roll history, Jim highlights Cleveland's architecture and Alan focuses on both African and local nature.

George's lecture covered stories of his work with local radio and TV stations in the early days of rock 'n roll. His audience, many of whom could remember the musicians' appearances, appreciated his insights. Questions centered around the musicians' personalities as well as other Cleveland area news anchors.

Jim had a loyal following and many shared their memories when viewing the buildings, bridges and landmarks his sepia images portrayed. Alan spoke with guests about his theories on wildlife photography and won over more than one fan.
