William Wegman Exhibit


I've been making an effort lately to go to museums and keep up with current exhibits. I always feel inspired afterwards to be a better artist, but without making an effort it seems I only go to museums once a year or less. I find I need a lot of inspiration when I am drowning in wedding photography.

Last week I went with a friend to see a William Wegman exhibit at the Addison Gallery of American Art on the campus of the Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts.

It was a fantastic exhibit and we were very impressed with the beautiful museum. I found out later that some of the Notable Alumni of the Phillips Academy include Walker Evans, Oliver Wendell Holmes, George Bush, George W. Bush, Humphrey Bogart, Jack Lemmon, and John F. Kennedy Jr!

Lizard and Sweetpea, we'll have to go there next time y'all are in town. It's really beautiful.
