On Friday night I had the pleasure to head over to Kai-Lin Art to photograph the opening of the latest gallery show: Terra.

The owner, Yu-Kai, is a kind fellow who always has a smile on his face. He knows what it takes to put on a great opening and how to please the hundreds of people who flow in and out of the gallery space.  I met him while I was an intern. Alumni intern Brittany Wages contacted me and asked if I would help her shoot the opening of Monsters. It was the first show in the new gallery space and there was a huge turn out. You can see it here.

When Yu-Kai asked me to come out to Terra, I was more than willing. It really satisfies the traditional artist in me. I brought along Intern Krista to help me capture everything. We also met a very nice videographer who was doing his part to captures the events of the night. I’m sure there is plenty of footage of Krista and I running around so I had to grab a couple images of him working as well. The night seemed to be a huge success with pieces being sold right on the floor. The artist were all amazing, kind, and friendly people. They all deserve to have every piece sold before the show closes. Just my opinion. 🙂
