The exhibition installation is on hold while I wait for the printing company to process my (admittedly massive) order. In the meantime, I thought I would share some highlights to whet your appetite before next week’s opening.
It has been SUCH a pleasure immersing myself in the world of these old photographs. What began as a puzzling jumble has slowly smoothed itself into a coherent timeline. Tracking the visual evolution of the Hermitage house and collection is a mighty thing; Mrs. Sloane accomplished quite a bit in her lifetime!

Please join us next Thursday, July 7th from 6:00 – 8:00 PM for the exhibition opening. We’ve got roughly 100 more images like these, along with letters, newspaper articles and rarely-seen objects from the collection. I also heard a rumor that there might be finger food and fancy drinks… but let’s not get ahead of ourselves.
