V sez:

Hey b.s.,

Just wanted to let you know about this interesting event at FotoFest on Saturday at 2pm.
The current exhibit, Mechanical Perception, opens this Friday (please see attached press release). On Saturday afternoon we have scheduled an artist talk with Anderson Wrangle and Eileen Maxson.
Anderson will be speaking in the gallery but Eileen will address attendees via thee World Wide Web and the wonders of iChat from Amsterdam where she is doing a long-term residency.
Should be fun – if it works (and we have been testing it extensively).
We’d love to see you here – and to see this news on your blog…

In other news:
I wanted to let you know that we are working on the third exhibition in the Talent in Texas series, following Home and Garden (2004) and Native Sons (2006).

The new exhibit, Viewfinder, looks to be a bigger and bolder show than its predecessors. It will feature over a dozen Texas-based artists and is curated by Arturo Palacios (Arthouse, Austin) and Risa Puelo (Blanton Museum of Art, Austin). The exhibit is a first-time collaboration between FotoFest and Houston Center for Photography (HCP) and is split between the two locations. A final list of artists will be announced shortly.
Along with the Mechanical Perception exhibit opening this Friday, it is a fall full of contemporary Texas photographic arts at FotoFest.

Please contact me if you have any question.

Thank you,
