Good-bye IGLOO...

It's been just about one year since I had my first showing of photography outside of California. I was in a two-man show with my good friend, J.Shea9, at the IGLOO Gallery in Portland, OR. Well, yesterday I received the sad news that the gallery will be closing it's doors at the end of this month after 2.95 years (as they put it) of operation.

Just another sign of the times I guess. Art is a luxury and is one of the first things to be put on the back burner when it comes to spending money in a down economy.

Thanks to Bryon Schroeder, Damien Gilley and Christine Taylor for providing a space for artists to display their work and for the good people of Portland to come and gawk at it. Even if it was for only 2.95 years!
