So You Think You Can Dance?

My daughter thinks she can dance.  She thinks she can dance salsa, samba and of course, her own private happy dance. This is her private happy dance.

she thinks she can dance

It seems all summer I’ve been dancing a somewhat fun, but complicated dance with my business and art.  I’ve been balancing wedding photography and art openings and my own personal development with family, friends and sanity.  I had a successful show, Body Politic I, at the Eubie Blake National Jazz Institute and Cultural Center that ran from July through mid September. As a proud affiliate of The Black Male Identity Project, I received a grant from Baltimore Office Promotion of the Arts to present this show and programming for Free Fall Baltimore 2011.

I will have a month of programming for the month of October at the Station North Arts Cafe, located at 1816 N. Charles Street, Baltimore, MD.  Please come support Free Fall Baltimore, Station North Arts and me if you are so inclined.

October 8th, Opening reception of Body Politic II, 6-8pm

October 14th, Grits and Gravy Artist Talk, 11am-12pm, Second Friday

October 19th, ‘Just Do the Work’ Business of Art Discussion, 11am-1pm

October 27th, Exhibition Closing, Spoken Word Night, 5pm-7pm

Enjoy the dance and hope to see you all soon.

Justin+Ritta+Bryson = Fall at Ft. McHenry

Ft. McHenry, october 2010. on this day,  there was no war, no one composing music set to history; instead, we had a gorgeous morning perfect for baby bryson’s outing with his mom and dad.  we had loads of fun with bryson and he set the pace for our morning. we waited for the first smile and then time flew. justin + ritta, i loved seeing how much you love each other and how much you love bryson. he’s well-loved and a perfect combination of you both. with two mothers at the session, at bryson’s first sneeze, we were done.
