New Space...New Artists Added

RSG would like to welcome two new photographers to our team.

Thekla Ehling and Marco Delogu

Please check out the website to see some of their work. They are both wonderful photographers and create beautiful work that is thought provoking and emotionally moving.

Thekla will have her first US Solo show here in June!!!

I met German based, Thekla Ehling at last years NY PhotoFest. She had this wonderful artist book that I adored. She was also part of the FOAM Magazine exhibit. Well, I took her card and put it up near my computer and it was there all year till she found me in Miami during art fair. She had had the book published and presented me with a copy..A week later, she was on my artist list.

Her work, Sommerherz, is a beautiful slice of life, personal and carefree, like the Summers we had as kids, on endless vacation, exploring and lying around, taking in the experience and capturing it as a lifelong memory. Her work makes me smile, endlessly, and god knows we all need an endless smile after the last 6 months.

Come see her show in June and lose yourself in the images.

Marco Delogu is one of those photographers that live and breathe his country. He is Italian and his work is all about Italy and it's people. From Vatican Cardinals to hard core criminal assassins in prison, Delogu is there with his large format camera to capture it. His work is deep and rich in black and white, full of mystery and emotion, life and passion.

RSG Goes to Brooklyn

I know, I am horrible about posting here. But, I have been a bit busy.
In February I decided to move the gallery from Washington DC, to the DUMBO district of Brooklyn, NY. I know, crazy...but why not!

DUMBO is a wonderful place. It is establishing itself as a solid destintion for the photographic community with galleries, publishers, agencies and photo creatives all coming to work and play here. It is a great community, vibrant with a happening night life.. Accessible from NYC by train, car or walk within minutes.

In May, the NY PhotoFestival takes place in DUMBO and attracts some 30,000 people during the week long event. All the local galleries present amazing exhibitions and the festival invites 4 curators to put together a selection of talented photographic artists. There are also lectures and panel discussions that are not to be missed.

All this was a big draw to DUMBO. Mainly, I felt the gallery and the artists would thrive better in the NY environment and at this moment...a positive outlook and forward direction is essential to navigate our changing times.

I do hope you will come by and see the new space. We are located in the 111 Front Street Building on the corner of Front and Washington. Look for the orange door.

Best train to take is the F to York st. (first Brooklyn Stop) or the A, C to High Street. (first stop). When here, walk around the neighborhood, there are amazing shops and places to eat and several great watering holes (I like reBar).

Here is a pic of the space....See you soon!!!
