Since last February, I have been photographing the historic 93 year old Pizitz Department Store building in downtown Birmingham. While of course the architectural details caught my eye, I was drawn to what appeared to be abstract paintings in the stairwells, walls and ceilings throughout the building. This collection I've named Historical Abstracts. I am thrilled to announce that 62 of my abstracts and architectural details will be installed in the common areas of the 6 floors of apartments as well as the lobby. A very special thank you to Bayer Property's project manager, Tom Walker and Wisznia's architect Jules Lagarde for allowing me access to the building, supporting my work and for selecting my photographs for the beautiful renovation due to open December, 2016.
On Thursday, November 3, I will show my Pizitz Series at the Henhouse Antiques in English Village from 4:30-7:30. I will be joined by Birmingham artist Carrie Pittman with delicious tastings by caterer Vaughan McGeehee. I hope you will stop by!
