The future: "Photography" chez Grace

Renee Woodward and Andrea Hope will be coming to Paris from Washington, D.C., to show their photographs of the female form here in a show called "Photography," opening Saturday, February 21. The Honfleur Gallery has kindly lent them to me, and gallery owner Duane Gautier will be present, as well as the artists themselves. Back in Washington, curators Amy Cavanaugh and Briony Evans will hold the fort.

Honfleur had faith enough to ask me to organize my first show "Americans in Paris" which opened in Washington's Anacostia district in October 2007. Works on view were of American artists-who-now-live-in-Paris Linda McCluskey, Barbara Navarro (installation), Trish Nickell, Robert Ogle (photos), Matthew Rose (collage). The pieces absolutely shone in the pristine space that is Honfleur. The work got good reviews and led to Barbara's showing at Conservation International since her installation sculptures are a plea for saving rainforests.
