In all of the excitement and planning lately, I completely overlooked posting about my current art show (duh!). Here’s the info:
“Postcards from Santa Cruz ” Polariod Transfer Collages by: Jo Ann Manolis
Feb 1st-April 1st
Azhar Hair Design

Azhar is on the corner of Cedar & Cathcart, just across the street from the Wednesday Farmer’s Market.

This was a really fun body of work to produce, a work in progress for sure. I’ve been experimenting…dividing digital images up in Photoshop and having each piece of the image converted to slide film. I then exposed the individuals onto Polaroid 669 film (no longer being made, but I’ve been madly stocking up) and re-pieced them together as transfers onto watercolor paper. Pretty time consuming, but really fun. I will definitely share a few pieces as soon as they come down on April 1st. You guessed it, I haven’t photographed any of the pieces or the show itself yet. Pathetic, I know.
Anyhow, if you’re in the neighborhood, drop by Azhar and check it out. Let me know what you think. It’s a really great salon, worth a visit regardless. The images were all taken in Santa Cruz recently but have been displayed in a nostalgic, old-school postcard sort of way. What can I say, I’m totally old school…I’d make every image look old if I could get away with it.
Thanks for stopping by…I ‘m so glad that you visited today!
