Looks like I will be having a group show in February at H Club..

It is a beautiful gym located at 423 West 55th Street. They showcase a few artists already that have done very well. Looks like the other artists have a large following so we are expecting the shows to do well. I am probably showing NY Photos but am waiting for their picks of what they want me to use.

So I'm in Rio and I figured I would check my web hits..

In the last 4 days I have had over 10,000 webhits! I am guessing it is my new layout for my website and the possibility that from my advertising in Gallery Guide for the Miami art shows too.
Here is one shot from Rio...

I was surfing the web and found a French Website appreciating my Photos...

French to English translation


Richard Silver, when photography becomes precision.
We don't know much about the photographer Richard Silver, except that his series "Tilt Shift" is stirring.
Model or real photo, one asks the question when you look long for the first photos of Richard Silver. After verification, it is indeed "real" pictures.
The illusion is perfect, however, and we complain Naura.http://www.esseclive.com/art-expos/decouvrir-et-reagir/artistes-et-oeuvres/014019-Richard-Silver-photographe-ou-maquettiste.htm
Here are some of his photos, but I invite you to take a ride on his website:

Yafee Ruden Galleries is a unique kind of artist exhibit to say the least. It is at a very successfull private medical practice, gastroenterology, phobia treatment, nutrition, bone density, physical therapy specialists. Every year they pick 2 different artists to be showcased on one of their many walls of art but it is considered a Solo Show because of the amount of wall space given to each of the two artists. I should have about 12 different Photos on display there for about a year. The show will have an Opening reception on Tuesday February 9th, 2010 from 7:30-9:00, all are welcome.
