A Night Like This


This past Saturday at the John Cleary Gallery I worked my first opening night reception, celebrating the Houston premiere of Keliy Anderson-Staley’s Imagined Family Heirlooms.

Installation shots of Keliy’s Baking Pan Series and Americans: Contemporary Tintype Portraits


Response was enthusiastic to Keliy’s work, which includes a wide range of photographic techniques as well as the incorporation of found objects into the exhibit.

Patrons were also treated to milk (white Russians) and cookies, inspired by the artists Baking Pan Series and served by the gallery’s in-house bartender/baker/husband of the director, Arnaud Couturier.

  1. Arnaud at an opening? And serving cookies? This has got to be a first. He looks like he's having fun.
