Click! programming heats up

The intrepid Click! team has been working hard to put together the best Click! festival ever this October. We are tremendously excited as each new piece comes together. Our group has had the great pleasure of having our recent planning meetings amongst the trees alongside the deck at Cassilhaus, which Frank Konhaus and Ellen Cassilly have provided as our brainstorming headquarters. Stalwart Clicksters! Stephen Fletcher, Barbara Tyroler and Ray Pfieffer have been working every corner of the triangle. Lori Vrba has been adding tons of fresh ideas and sharing her far-ranging experiences and Frank Konhaus has been stirring the pot with all the stellar resources and connections he has lovingly cultivated.

Of late it seems like magic happens everyday. From the improbable to the impossible, we keep getting blessed by good fortune. Our partners have been incredible. The good folks at NCMA have tremendous programs scheduled, Jeff, Jerry and Meredith and the team at 21c Museum Hotel have gone above and beyond in their support. And in just the last few days, I could hardly have imagined the confluence of events that will bring the legendary Jerry Uelsmann to be a keynote speaker. It started with a brainstorming session and then went rushing headlong…from Max Wallace and Frank Konhaus, who made the connections, to Wendy and everyone at the Nasher Museum for deciding to host this great event, then Roylee Duvall at Through this Lens gallery, who spontaneously agreed to host an exhibition, after Lori Vrba made the suggestion and then she enthusiastically shifted the date of her show at TTL to accommodate this idea, and finally to all the collectors who are willing to loan us work, including Jim Finch, who will curate the exhibit. 

I have not even mentioned our other keynote speaker, Zanele Muholi, or our best portfolio review event ever. There is simply too much upcoming. Please have a look at our website, to check out all that we have in store for this coming fall.

All the cooks are in the kitchen and this gumbo is simmering. It is starting to smell very tasty. And if I hadn’t already killed this metaphor. Don’t spoil your appetite, this October is going to be delicious. -BL
