American Ghosts : Opening Night

Gallery Show through March 25, 2017

Walt Girdner Photo Studio & Gallery
27 S. El Molino, Pasadena, California

Opening Night & Reception

The gallery is next to the Pasadena Playhouse, so I’ll be at the gallery before and after performances.

I had a successful opening night at the Walt Girdner Photo Studio & Gallery.  Once it got busy, I wasn’t able to keep doing event photography.    Multiple items were sold, which pleases me greatly.

The large pieces are printed on 24″ x 36″ Museo Silver Rag paper, and are on display are in 30″ x 40″ frames.


I also have browse bins for many ghost signs, plus a smaller print option (17″x22″ paper) which I frame in 24″ x 30″ frames.

That’s me on the right, in the photo above, with the funny hat. The hat has been everywhere. A friend said that I am kind of like Indiana Jones (I’m a Dr. Jones too!) doing archaeology, except in an urban environment.  Therefore I wore the hat (but I didn’t think a leather whip was appropriate for an Art Opening).

I have a special wall for several ghost signs from Pasadena and Los Angeles.  The Los Angeles signs are either already gone, or will soon be gone.

The show features 30 ghost signs selected from a collection of over 7000 photographed in all 48 states.
