Opening Night at Gloss

Posted on Jan 24, 2009 | 6 comments

So yesterday the big day finally arrived and I had my first ever photo exhibit open at Gloss here in Rome. A friend of mine took a bunch of photos as well, so I’ll be adding more to the album. The evening went really well and I must say that I feel so blessed to have the support of not only my friends and family back home, but all of my friends here as well. I headed over at about 4:30 pm to hang my photos and Dario, who owns the bar, couldn’t have been nicer with helping me get set up.

At 7 pm I returned and the evening was a success! I think about 30 to 40 people came by, everyone from former and current roommates, tennis buddies, Context docents, fellow bloggers (always good to see you Arlene and great to meet you Maegan!) all came by to stop and see the show. More than anything it made me realize how many great people I know here in Rome.

It was really amazing to see my work hung up on the wall, looking quite professional if I do say so myself! The photos will be in place at Gloss (via Monte della Farina 44) through Thursday evening if you are in town and would like to take a look. About half of the photos are also available for purchase through Imagekind and anyone living in Rome that would be interested in purchasing one of the photos, just contact me via email. Below I’m linking more pictures from the evening, and here on Flikr you can see the images that are in the show (minus two, which you can see here and here).

Thank you everyone again, from those of you there to people who left nice comments of support on the blog to those of you who follow me on Twitter and sent me messages wishing me well.

    You are molto talented and it was nice to see the photos so nicely curated.


  5. Way to go Jessi! Europeans are just so much more appreciative of art then … well … you know who.

  6. Sorry it’s taken me so long to reply to you guys! Thank you so much for all your nice comments. The night went by in one big blur, I can’t believe it’s over! Thanks Arlene, I’m glad my art historian curatorial skills finally came in handy. And yes, Snapshutter, in many ways they are more appreciative but I must say, we had a very huge American ex-pat contingent come out, so we’re here (we just all moved away 😉 )
