I’m having a show of some of my new work in April. It’ll be at Big Jar Books in Old City, on Second Street between Market and Arch. Free wine and possibly cheeze doodles during the opening reception.
For the uninitiated, the First Friday of every month is like a mini-Mardi Gras in Old City. There’s about 20 art galleries clustered together, and they change all the artwork every month. Doors are open from about 5-9 pm, and many have beer, wine, and snax. Big Jar might even have a band playing. Its a great environment for fun–its not all that stuffy or artsy. There’s also a great CD shop down the street, AKA Music, where you can’t swing a cat without hitting cool, cheap used CDs.
There are lots of restaurants, theatres, and music clubs in the area. The weather should be getting warmer by April 7, so walking from place to place should be comfortable enough. Though many are cold, few are frozen.
My last show (January 2006 at InFusion in Mt. Airy) had a marvelous turnout, mostly thanks to the support and presence of all of you. I am humbled and grateful to those who, in the past, have found meaning in my work.
Here are the details:
“CEMETERY PHOTOGRAPHY” by Ed Snyder, at Big Jar Books. First Friday reception April 7. Show runs April 7-30. 55 N. 2nd St . Phila., 215/574-1650.
