Amador Gallery will be opening an exhibition of one of my personal faves, Mark Power, on January 26th 2011 at their midtown location. I'm most familiar with Power's 'Shipping Forecast' series, alongside which will be a new body of work, 'The Sound of Two Songs'.

"The Sound of Two Songs is the result of the artist's love affair with Poland, describing in photographic terms the changing social values of a country caught between the past, the present and the future, both in terms of attitude and of the contradictions found in its landscape. The series reflects both the urban and the rural, the old and the new, setting the crumbling inner city housing estates of the Communist era against the new developments of colorful apartments and gleaming shopping centers."

Come to the NY opening of Dirk Anschütz' new solo exhibition of his fabulous portrait series 'The Sultans': Turkish men of a certain age in all their patriarchal glory. As I've mentioned before, Dirk is a most entertaining photographer and story-teller, as evidenced on his blog. You can read the back story on The Sultans at The Heavy Light. I think Dirk is also onto something with a new and interesting concept on rent-to-buy art. Read more.


The lovely Manjari Sharma has an exhibition opening at Paul Kopeikin Gallery in Culver City, LA on January 8th with the show up through February 12th. Prints from Manjari's Water series will be on view. There will be a closing reception that she will be "flying in from India for" and there will be an Indian food truck! Sigh.

In conjunction with 'The Co-Operative' - WWF UK and Greenpeace - a street gallery of Jiri Rezac's Canada tar sands photographs will be on view on London's South Bank from September 14th for four weeks. You can see the photo feature in aCurator Magazine and if you're in London, go check out the prints.

Our good friends at Snap Galleries are excited about the new exhibition which just opened in their London Piccadilly space and runs through November 6th.

Says gallery director Guy White "After one of the busiest weeks I can remember, our new Jimi Hendrix exhibition is up on the walls, and looks magnificent. I can say with some confidence that it is one of the finest collections we have had the pleasure to display. I still can't believe that we are the first gallery anywhere in the world to host a solo exhibition of work from Gered Mankowitz' Jimi Hendrix archives.

And by a simple twist of fate, our gallery premises are the exact same location where Gered's father, Wolf Mankowitz, set up the Mankowitz family business, dealing in antique Wedgwood china, in the late 1940s."

As well as prints for sale there's also a book available in conjunction with the exhibition.

It is going to be a happy week! I had to be dragged away from Chris Killip's photographs at AIPAD this year and now his first solo show in the States opens at Amador Gallery on Wednesday September 15th. I can not wait for the reception for '4 + 20' where I'm hoping to chat up my fellow expat countryman.
