Just want to say thanks to everyone who came out last night for the opening party of the Sprockettes-themed art and photo show at Breeze Block Gallery.

It was neat to see my photos in their full glory, set free from the confines of a computer screen. It was also an honor to share the space with artist Tiago DeJerk and photographer Sarah Eastman.

Several people that couldn’t make it have asked to see the photos I selected for the show. I put together a slideshow (watch/listen below) of them set to music (by the Buenos Aires band Tanghetto) recorded live from a Sprockettes performance in Davis, California back in July. And you can still check out the show at Breeze Block Gallery (NE 10th and Alberta) through the end of September.

Here is the slideshow (you can watch it on auto with sound by pressing “play” or use the right and left arrow keys on the player to go through them one-by-one):

The images are available for sale at the gallery for $40 a piece (includes frame). You can also contact me (jonathan[at]bikeportland[dot]org) if you are interested in purchasing 8 x 12″ prints ($30 each, printed by Pro Photo Lab in Northwest Portland). Thanks again for your support!

NOTE: At BikePortland, we love your comments. We love them so much that we devote many hours every week to read them and make sure they are productive, inclusive, and supportive (heck, sometimes we even fix your typos!). That doesn't mean you can't disagree with someone. It means you must do it with tact and respect. This is our business and we do not tolerate mean commenters who add nothing of value to the discussion.

Unfortunately, we are not robots and we don't always catch everything. You can help by notifying us if you see inappropriate comments. Thanks! — Jonathan and Michael
