Simply Seen – almost final thoughts…

Simply Seen goes on throughout the month of November 2011 at Downtown Yoga Shala and now that it’s up I would like to share a few thoughts…

First, my thanks to Veronica Cruz, the owner of Downtown Yoga Shala, for allowing me to show my new work. I’d also like to thank South FIRST FRIDAY for organizing this wonderful monthly art events here in San Jose creating an unparalleled opportunity for artists and patrons to meet and share in their passions. To my friends Kathleen Gonzalez and the Jewel of Opar Belly Dance Ensemble for their performance and instruction for patrons who wanted to learn some basics of belly dancing. Finally I’d like to thank all the friends who visited and the new ones who I met, for coming out that evening. Without you… well it wouldn’t have been the same.

If you were not able to visit the Shala on opening night, please feel free to come by anytime during the month of November.

  1. Wow what an experience! I can’t wait to see your work! Will certainly make the trek up there this month.

  2. What a great opening for your show. Wonderful idea! Was that a crazy show to hang. I love the work. Shannon and I wanted to make it down, what are the times to see it again?

    • Marco Zecchin says:

      With 80+ images to hang – put up with magnets – it was logistically crazy and took almost 3 hours between two of us. Curating the show – deciding which views to include and in what order took a few weeks of dining room walls covered with smaller versions pinned and repinned in different order to find a way to make sense of the work. I did get some thoughtful help from Zoe and some other friends…

      The best time is any morning before 12:30. They close the doors in the afternoon till 5:00 and are open again till around 8:00.

  3. Congratulations on your show!! Love your photos!
