Hockday Museum of Art Elevations Reception

Elevations exhibit at the Hockaday Museum of Art in Kalispell. Brian Ekland, most excellent Communications Director at the museum was kind enough to send me some photos from the event which I am finally getting around to posting. This first shot, taken during my gallery talk, shows the innovative way in which Elizabeth Moss, Executive Director of the museum, dealt with having more images than space for a simple horizontal display of the work; in a couple of places she hung them three high, a perfect arrangement photos of tall structures like these.

I like this next shot, also taken during the gallery talk, because not only does it make me look like I might know what I’m talking about but the two ladies in the background are actually taking notes like what I was saying was important! The ladies were both docents at the museum and I was impressed with how much interest they take in their jobs, learning as much as they can about the exhibit so they can explain it to visitors.

Finally, what reception would be complete without an impromptu fashion show? Here Connie (a.k.a. the fashion queen) and two like-minded new friends pose for a shoe shot.

 All in all it was a great time and what a nice venue for my photos. If you live in the area, be sure to stop by and check it out–it’s on view all summer.]]>
