Document The Fresh Closing, Lamont Bishop, November 26, 2011, 7-10 PM. 
I know I’ve been mentioning the exhibition Document The Fresh for forever! It’s been up now for over a week and this week is it’s last. We’re ending with a bang on Saturday, November 26, 2011.
The show was featured in an article in the Washington Post about DC galleries. A photograph of my MF Doom piece was featured on the cover of the weekend section with a picture of my lit up Biz Markie inside. These images, shot by Astrid Riecken were also included in the online version which can be viewed here: http://www.washingtonpost.com/goingoutguide/the-new-gallery-scene/2011/11/06/gIQATaMSUN_story.html?wpisrc=nl_gogthu
The Biz shot was featured again Monday, Nov 21, in the Going Out Guide on C6, telling you that our Closing Night should not be missed. Going Out Guide is linked here http://www.washingtonpost.com/gog/exhibits/document-the-fresh-closing-party,1219089.html




In addition to the large pieces I made for the show, I have 8.5x11 prints available of some of your favorite musicians. Art is always a great gift and prints are easy to display and liven up a room.



This show has been a real kick down memory lane for me. I’ve always surrounded myself with artists of all genres and my love for music helped spark my exploration of this realm with a camera. I’ve been digging through the photo crates to unearth images from near and far, digital, negatives and chromes. I’m pleased to show these images today with new life.
 

DOCUMENT the Fresh features works of three notable area photographers: Rosina “Teri” Memolo, Dafna Steinberg, and Vickey Ford. The striking images of this exhibition makes for a truly unique show that will give attendees a “backstage pass” and “front row” look into a variety of events and concerts. Viewers will be transported back to these concerts and events, tapping into all five senses.

Document the Fresh. LAMONT BISHOP. 1314 9th NW. Saturday November 5, 2011.
You might have noticed I’ve been mentioning this exhibition Document The Fresh for a few months now. We had a ton of fun planning this show (& making up spoof names for it, ahem BWC). I know it will be a splendid night to venture out. But before the party, the trip has been a real kick down memory lane for me. I grew up in music and the arts, I booked the bands at Fort Reno (a DC institution STILL GOING) in high school and I’ve always found myself surrounded by artists of all genres. It was a logical progression that I would explore this love with a camera. I’ve been digging through the photo crates to unearth images from near and far, digital, negatives and chromes. I wish I could show them all.
 DOCUMENT the Fresh features the works of three notable area photographers: Rosina “Teri” Memolo, Dafna Steinberg, and up-and-coming photographer Vickey Ford. The striking images that these talented photographers have shot will make for a truly unique show that will give attendees a “backstage pass” and “front row” look into a variety of events and concerts: big and small, in and out-of-state, that each has experienced.
DOCUMENT the Fresh will transport exhibition goers back to these concerts, events in an environment that will surely tap all five senses. 
Side note: A block down from Document the Fresh at 1226 9th ST NW, I added faces of my students shot by my students to the windows of an abandoned property. Make sure to give it a glance while you are in the neighborhood.
The installation was part of a festival on called Art All Night/Nuit Blanche and the Students are from Words Beats and Life and the project was our contribution to JR’s InsideOut Project. This assignment turned art installation is starting to take on a life of it’s own and we are looking for more outdoor walls to adorn with our images. If you know of any developers or people/organizations with large abandoned properties that may be able to donate space, please forward.
Sunday Panel:If your Saturday is already booked or just looking for somewhere to go on Sunday, November 6, is the DOCUMENT the Fresh panel discussion @ 3:00PM, same place, LAMONT BISHOP, 1314 9TH Street NW. Moderated by Risikat Okedeyi and free.

Thursday, April 14 from 6-9pm Outside of Torpedo Factory

Why would a photographer build a nest? Maybe I was a bird in a past life. Our nest contribution was a way to recycle and reuse clippings from my apple tree, a beloved pair of ripped jeans, and random flora from the florist Volanni’s bins behind my house. I made a nest last year with Kevin Hunt and unfortunately it was stolen - most likely by the trash collectors. This year, Kevin Hunt, DECOY, Tim Rogers were kind enough to help with the initial construction and Sydney Cain pitched in with the final install and beauty portion of the build. People seemed to like our nest, they featured it in the email.
The opening is Thursday at 8 PM, hope you can make it, anyone wishing to see new work, let me know, I will have some on hand.

Join us Thursday, April 14 from 6-9pm for Second Thursday Art Night

April 1,2011 @ Andrew Mellon Auditorium, 1301 Constitution Avenue NW, 7p - 12a, rsvp @ gentlemanjackabl.com

The first time I attended this party was in Baltimore. I remember thinking I was being swindled into a ride, but as it turns out, I kind of fell for the Arts Beats and Lyrics crew and made sure to get put down with them. The event had dope music, a crazy band and row after row of colorful, fun and diverse artwork. It’s an honor to share hall space with this cocktail of artists. AND, you don’t know Jack till you attend one of his events…
