Eric Mertens

mertens-dispI had a chance to catch Eric Mertens gallery show at Kuhl Frames this last weekend and found it very inspiring. Eric has some thought provoking work on display and the gallery has done a very good job of hanging the work so that the daguerreotypes are displayed to great advantage. Of course as a pre-beginner I was greatly interested in viewing Eric’s obvious technical mastery as well. If you are anywhere near the San Francisco Bay area, I highly recommend that you stop by. The gallery is holding an opening event tomorrow – Friday May 1 from 6-9 pm. There will be music, an opportunity to meet the artist, and a chance to see some great daguerreotypes. Here are some pictures of Eric’s display.
