Two HS AP Language and Composition "Emma's", posted a call for art and scored from women of the community over 20 pieces for their school project. Impressive.
Hosted by a find of a downtown Bellingham boutique known as The Bureau, owner Sara offered a conducive and enthusiastic environment for the gals gig. The girls commented on how the products of The Bureau's vendors, also local artisan crafted, were complimentary to the gallery collection. Definitely a win/win.
I enjoyed meeting Emma and Emma, two dynamic, bright, and up to something girls who inspire me to believe that the future of our world is in good hands. Especially the creative world. Their project besides having this community outreach element also includes a lengthy presentation to their peers, and a 5 page paper. No problem according to these ambitious gals.
SHE, the framed image Emma and Emma chose from my submissions, was ever so placed right next to the hats.
The two day show had a steady stream of guests, offering a feeling of success vibe to the project. While I know very few folks in the area - i do know that some of whom I know attended. That felt pretty terrific. Emma's mom gave me this welcome to Bellingham hug that I have to say really made my day.
I was impressed by the range of art curated. I didn't photograph too much of it. Here are a few pieces that I snapped a shot of.
Congratulations Emma and Emma, on a project well done. I'd say the two of you are Feminomenal!

Photography = a never ending opportunity to capture visual celebrations.
