My exhibit at Art on Ice

Shaddow puppets? ... I take a photo (right) while someone points (left) at one of my photos. As my friend Madhava said, "Metaphotography makes for great blog content." So there you have it.

This past weekend I participated in Art on Ice, a Winterlude event. It's the first time I've ever displayed my photos anywhere off-line, and it was a hoot! It was a spectacular day -- perfect temperature, smooth ice, and not a cloud in the sky. Quite the contrast to last weekend's slush-a-thon. As a result, there were huge crowds out on the canal and stopping in on Patterson Creek to check out the art. I was impressed by the calibre and diversity of art on display (check out "Nuns vs. Dragons" and other work in Bhat Boy's Envisionist Gallery, for example, or "Factory Recall" and the like at Andrew King's studio). Some artists had even made the trek from out of town!

Thanks to everyone who stopped by -- family, friends, and complete strangers! -- including for all the kind words and support. Special thanks to Miriam for putting me in a frame of mind to do this (and then helping with the physical framing too!), to Kathy for the hot chocolate, and to organizers Christopher Griffin and Pam Connolly.

If you picked up one of my cards and are visited this site for the first time, welcome! Have a look around and feel free to leave me a comment!

Hello Anatole. I was a few meters to the east of you at Art on Ice -- like you, displaying my images "off-line" for the first time. It was great. You might enjoy looking at my photoblog, which is http://markimages.blogspot.com
