First Fridays

The Start of a new month is here.  With it, a new First Fridays in the Crossroads Art District in downtown Kansas City, Mo.  Several things have changed over the last month.  One, my lovely wife gave me a healthy baby girl.  Two, I have added seven prints for display at the El Patron Restaurant.  Tricia Cronk, owner of Ethan Cole Desgins, contacted me about the possibility of displaying some of my work for the restaurant.  I took her up on her idea, and we will see what the first First Fridays brings.

The works are of various iconic areas and views of Kansas City.  Feel free to stop by the Facebook page with the album El Patron images.  While you are there, hit the like button to be able to follow updates for TBL Photography on Facebook.

Also, for those of you who love to adorn your walls with photographic art... Fracture is a very unique way of getting your favorite shots up on the wall.  I have a couple of these (soon to be more), and love them.  The photo is uploaded to their website (give it a minute as there is not an upload monitor) and then the process begins.  Pick the size you want, add a fancy digital frame around the pic, and order.  

The idea behind this is one of simplicity.  The photo is adhered to the back of the glass so that you can scrub away those pesky toddler fingerprints, and there is no worry of scratching your photo.  Also, the back has your mounting already as part of the backing.  Pull out the provided screw when you open it up, screw it in the wall, and you are set. 

One of the interesting things about this item, is the size is measured from corner to corner (like your television).  There are some estimates as to size comparison on the website.  Also, you can email the company for custom works (i.e. three panel splits).  I think that will be one of my next orders.  All in all, I really like the product.

Hope to see all of you at the First Fridays tonight.  Don't forget to stop by 2010 Gallery KC (located at 2010 Main Street, KC, Mo) for some great artwork.  Currently I have one gallery piece there, and it looks great.  A 20x30 framed print of the Liberty Memorial (Happy Easter from the Liberty Memorial).

Have a safe and fun weekend,
