Though first, let me just say that if you were not at the opening for A New American Portrait you did miss quite a fantastic event -- and I'm not just saying this because I feel obligated to. As already mentioned, the turnout was remarkable and the work looks especially nice "in the flesh."
Gallerist Ed Winkleman had quite a few kind words to say about the exhibition on his blog, describing the show as "a wonderful survey of contemporary portraiture in photography." And Padddy Johnson of the notorious Art Fag City had a bit of fun with the digital snaps that Alec took on her camera at the opening. If you're curious, there are more pictures from opening night available online in both Jen and Jörg's Flickr streams.
And fortunately, for those of you who weren't able to make it on Friday, the work will be on view at the gallery until August 3.
Now back to the original point of this post, eh?
Just yesterday, Jen was on a radio show where she spoke with Eva Lake about the ANAP show, the gallery, her new 20x200 project, Hey, Hot Shot!, Personism, blogs in general, her List of Women Speakers for Your Conference, plus a whole lot more.
Basically, she talked about everything ever.
I found that the conversation was very interesting especially for those less familiar with what goes on the at the gallery. Listeners will get a good sense of Jen's motivations as a gallerist and a bit of information about her plethora of projects.
The podcast is worth a listen if you've got the time.
