Instant Gratification - Gallery 788

Instant Gratification was a fantastic Baltimore Art Event - great fun - art - performers - great people. Hosted by Gallery 788 manager Erod Rodriquez. Gallery 788 is located at 788 Washington Blvd in Baltimore city. Organized and moderated by Philip Edward Laubner and Lauren Barnhart. 

What is it? It's experiencing yourself being transformed into art; it's unexpected ideas and visions; It tastes like you see it sounds and doesn't it feel so good?!  It's Alexa Grey, Robin Gunkel, Nancy Murray, Chandra Guglik, Jode Mode, Kim Jensen, Michael Monroe and friends sharing their words and ideas. It's the electronic soundscapes of DJ Introvert, the acoustics of Michael Monroe, the ambient jams of Tom Swiss a.k.a Tom Swift and the Electric Monk, the riveting L.I.E. (Lyrics Incarnate Evolving), or the harmonious voices of Silent Whys; It's the expressive body art of Patricia Tamariz and Toby Verhines; it's an interactive photo booth with an expanding canvas of images. It's Matt Muirhead and Crystal Dunn fixing your social ailments in exchange for....muhahahahah. All of this happens at the same event in a gallery displaying the work of amazing local artists. Here's a slideshow with music.

ReAnna and Amanda

Sunday afternoon, I assisted Lauren Garczynski with her concept shoot in the studio. After Lauren's models dressed back into their street clothes, Lauren and I, Amanda  and ReAnna played with the ambient light in the studio. These are proofs - none of them have been photo-shopped - some Lightroom adjustments and cropping.

Spaghetti Disco

Spaghetti Disco - What a strange name - but it was fantastic fun.

Kristie and I attended a wacky Charles Village neighborhood tradition, the Spaghetti Disco! - a fund raiser for  the Village Learning Place. It's a great annual party that brings together food, kids’ crafts and games, and great neighbors on a dance floor in St John's Church on St Paul Street in  Baltimore city. This was the first year Kristie and I attended and I'm sure we'll be back next year.

Here's a few images - full slide show with music at
