This is a bit late in the game but I have an opportunity to get a well known Toronto Gallery for a week the second week in May during Contact Photo Festival in Toronto. It will be $350 for your cost for half the gallery for the week. I need to know by Monday the latest. I am doing a group show during Contact but I would love to do a more exclusive show and I have dealt with this Gallery several times before. If you are interested PM me here and I will get back to you with my email address. I would do the whole gallery myself but I do not have enough work to show or the time to get that much work together. Anyway let me know if your interested.

Hi A.L.

You should probably name the gallery as that might intrigue people more.

Just curious, do all photographers exhibiting at Contact have to pay to have their work exhibited?

It is not part of Contact like the group show I am doing, it is at the same gallery that I am doing a group show for Contact. I have never paid to be part of Contact I am not sure if other galleries do but to get into Contact it is usually full booked by late November. This just was a last minute offer I got and I think doing a photo show that runs during a contact is a rare chance. I would have love to take the gallery myself but unfortunately I do not have enough work to show and my printer is off getting fixed and not sure when I am getting it back to even print enough. I rather just let anyone interested know the name of the gallery or if I lock up the deal. At this late point I doubt it will happen unless there is last minute interest. It is a very rare opportunity to be able to get a good well known gallery so close to contact for anything.

Thanks A.L - If I wasn't already exhibiting in Mtl, I'd consider it for sure.
If people were interested, how many 16x20 (example) images could they show?
and you juuust never know....can you name the Gallery or PM it to me?

Thx!

Thanks Marko but I thought I had someone but they backed out last minute and I needed to let him know by this morning so I am going to have to pass on this unfortunately. Yea it was a rare opportunity but he needs to fill the space and cannot wait any longer, oh well what can you do just glad I can still be part of Contact. I have not been active recently and I have not been on the ball on this and it is my fault that I did not find anyone. It came up just as I was sidetracked by other things and I did not put as much time and effort as I should have. I need to get on the ball again. I have never been this scattered brain and this just shows I need to start making it more of priority or I am going to keep missing opportunities like this.
