Part Three: Musing about the future of art shows—-Info on how to travel to shows

Posted by Nels johnson on June 24, 2020 at 6:30pm 1 Comment

Since the virus and quarantine most of us have not done much traveling long distance like you would normally do to get to a show.

Ellen and I live in New Smyrna Beach, seven months, and Saugatuck,MI the rest.

Part 2: Looking ahead to future shows and musing about problems to overcome

Posted by Nels johnson on June 16, 2020 at 11:33am 15 Comments

I have thought seriously about what it is going to look like when they finally let us exhibit again in the Covid era.

I am a photographer. So presently I show my work in framed images on the wall and then a table with two matted print bins and a small table with a box for my 16x20 mats.
