EVERYDAY LIFE INDIA: Opening Reception Success!

Saturday, November 3, 2012

My Everyday Life India photo exhibition kicked-off its near month long run with a wildly successful opening reception on Friday, November 2. Over 250 guests mingled, tasted traditional appetizers from India, and enjoyed entertainment by DJ Teek and belly dancer, Dilara.

I had a great time interacting with art enthusiasts, Daily Candy followers, couples out for date night, and both old and new friends. The positive energy radiated as I received feedback on my work in person. Even a five-year-old gave me his thoughts on his favorite print.

It was a humbling experience to be surrounded by members of Atlanta's Indian Community. One of the most profound moments in the show for me was speaking to an Indian woman who told me, "I grew up in India but these images have awakened my spirit in such a way to view the beauty of my country. I feel alive."

A huge thank you to the people who helped make this event a success. First, to my beautiful wife, Brandi, who is so patient and gracious to allow me to continue to explore and create art. I am continually grateful for her support in such a busy time, especially with so much happening and with the birth of our first child, 2 month old Addison. Thank you to my family who attendeded and also helped work the event, my sisters Krystal, Raschelle, and Sherrell as well as my brother, Michael. A huge thank you to my friends, Cliff Robinson and Paras Griffin, for capturing the occasion as well. I am so lucky to have such a supportive staff, Tara and Sakeenah, who worked tirelessly to get us prepared.

I would sincerely like to thank the vendors that made this event so highly successful. Thank you to KIS(cubed) events and S3 Catering for the delicious authentic Indian cuisine. Thank you to DJ Teek and belly dancer, Dilara, for the fantastic entertainment. The coordination of talent was by Nadira Merali of Envi Event Planning. The fabulous decor was provided by Ragini Patel with Weddings InStyle and lighting provided by Active Production and Design.

Don't forget, I am giving away a FREE, yes free, fine art print of the Taj Mahal. Find out how to win by visiting my blog post.

It's true what they say. I've been following your blog since you captured the Ritz proposal. You may laugh at this, but you're starting to look like your wife's twin brother. Happy Thanksgiving!
