Lookin' at photographs

OK folks, if you like photography, tomorrow (Aug. 4, 2017) is the First Friday (and weekend) for you! Let's break it down (my apologies to folks/shows I've missed, and for the length of this post):
-- At M10 Studio (Circle City Industrial Complex, 1125 Brookside Ave.), we're opening an awesome show of black and white images by Ron Wise.
-- At the Landmarks Center, (1201 Central Ave.) the joint iMOCA / Indiana Landmarks show, "Meaningful Places," ( finishes up. I (ahem) have 2 photographs showing there, among some really talented folks such as Justin Chase Lane, Rad Drew, Sarah Kercheval, Gary Schmitt, Ron Kern and many more. Whoa.
-- Roberts Camera, one of the best stores in the land to purchase photographic supplies, is hosting its second annual First Friday Gallery night ( Two of my M10 Studio colleagues, Steve Brokaw and Karl Zemlin, have images showing there. I (ahem) have one on display there too.
-- Speaking of M10 Studio colleagues, make time to swing by the Stutz, where Faith Blackwell will be hanging out in D345 with friends and photos.
-- Those crazy (in a good way) kids, photographer Willyum Baulkey, makeup artist Danelle French and hair stylist Anthony Perez have put together a show, "Playlist," merging music and fashion, at Soirée by French Pharmacie in Broadripple (823 E Westfield Blvd.)
-- My friend and awesome photographer, Sally Wolf, has a bunch o' photographs on display (and for sale, hint, hint) at the Noblesville City Hall, 16 S. 10th Street, during August. Technically, I don't know if this show is open during First Friday evening, but still...
-- If you're up for a road trip, the most excellent Pictura Gallery in Bloomington (122 W. 6th Street), is having its opening reception for a show of works by Elizabeth Stone and Nicole Campanello.
-- But wait, there's more! Yes, the Indiana State Fair opens Friday, and that means the annual Indiana State Fair photography competition is unveiled. Ya'll got 763 photos to look at there, folks. But since the fair runs through Aug. 20, there's no rush. What? Do I have images there? Well (ahem) yes.
