Au Revoir, Elm Street Studio!

Thanks to everyone who came out to support me during my photography exhibition Life in Frame, at Elm Street Studio in Keller, Texas. The show closed on March 1st, and it’s always a little bittersweet taking your art down off the wall at the end of an exhibition. But there’s always more opportunities around the corner!

If you missed your chance to swing by during the exhibit, here’s a few snapshots of the show.

Keller’s Elm Street Studio hosts the art show Life in Frame from January 9th through March 1st, featuring the works of local, award-winning photographer KC Hulsman. The exhibition is a celebration of life as well as the beauty of age and decay. The public is invited to the free artist reception on Friday, February 1at 6pm located inside the gallery located at 139 South Elm Street in Keller, Texas. Both Elm Street Studio and the artist KC Hulsman are committed to giving back to their local community, so a portion of all exhibition sales will be donated to the Humane Society of North Texas.
