Gunther Cartwright New Work

This morning I received a note from Gunther Cartwright mentioning a recent show of his Industrial Blues series of photographs in Rochester, NY. At Gunther's encouragement I have updated and added to his page on the Through This Lens web site. Please take a look at to see a new image and updated information.

On another note, I have started a new blog called Dear Medici at

The idea is to share opinions and ideas about the business of ART. Even though Through This Lens is a business, there are things that need discussing but would seem too off topic for this blog. Of course the opinions there may, or may not be my own - and should not be considered part of, or endorsed by Through This Lens.

Snow at Through This Lens

Continuing the odd weather pattern in the Triangle, Through This Lens was closed from about 1PM Wednesday through Friday afternoon because of snowy and icy roads. Bill Pope, a member and friend, send the attached photo of the gallery from across the street. Thanks Bill!

Linda Grant

I learned today that Linda Grant, a former employee and adviser, passed away on Tuesday, February 11, 2014. Linda had many years experience as picture framer, and shared that knowledge while working in our frame shop. Linda also spent much of her time with volunteer work in the community. I must note that she was such a good negotiator that her's is the only photography that I've ever show by an employee. I'm sure she would smile at me mentioning that. She will be missed by me, and other friends and family.
