day +981

So, I returned to the hospital on Tuesday afternoon as planned to receive a scheduled immunization (Japanese encephalitis) and get labs drawn for my cardiologist. While there, I went to pickup any remaining photos that didn't sell at last week's patient art show.

My photograph of the interior of the Gould Memorial Library (at Bronx Community College) did not sell in the end. It's a beautiful shot, but admittingly it was a hurried addition to the collection of images that I had selected for show. In retrospect, it didn't strengthen the overall theme of the collection that I was seeking. Rather, it detracted from them in large part because unlike the others it was shot inside and the subject was largely unknown to the audience. If I were to pick the Gould Memorial Library again, I would choose a stronger, more captivating image.

The Gould Memorial Library, by the way, is considered by many to be the opus magnum of Stanford White, the great American Beaux-Arts architect. Surrounding the library at its rear is the Hall of Fame of Great Americans, the first hall of fame in the U.S.

The Lehman College Art Gallery will host an artists exhibition in celebration of its 25th anniversary in about two weeks. Invited to participate because I have a number of images on its Bronx Architecture website, I plan to submit the GML photograph. Since I spent money to have it have it printed and framed, I figure I might as well try to get something for it.
