Galleri Blunk, Trondheim - outsidere

On Oct 4 Galleri Blunk opened the door to their latest exhibition. The show outsidere was curated by Dan Skjæveland and featured work from all the photographers associated with our gallery. The idea was to try and highlight some of the work being produced and distributed outside of traditional institutions, where politics and money might play a lesser part in influencing the work. We were excited to try and bring this work into a more traditional venue for a limited time to see what an engaged audience would think.

Galleri Blunk is a non-profit gallery run by young local artists and they give artists a chance to show their work to the local townsfolk. It seemed like the perfect space for this exhibition.

The show was up for four days and Dan Skjæveland was present in this period to take questions.

Mike Murphy

We are proud to welcome Mike Murphy as our newest artist.

'Since the late 70's I have been exploring the medium of photography in one form or another. Currently I’m using an iPhone (like everyone else) in an attempt to create a new perspective on street photography.

Using the Pano app, and shot from a moving car, these photographs merged the multiple perspectives of the passing landscape into a single composite picture. All are created in camera. The only post processing is cropping and color correction.'

New artist

We are proud to include the work of William Keckler in the gallery.

'About me? Poet and storyunteller. I like merfolk. Visuals tickle my uvula.. I like the indescribable, the irrecoverable, the unrecognizable and the alluringly indecipherable. I think that means I just like nature. Also, I believe (perhaps mistakenly) I am part of nature.' 

Below you'll find three galleries of William Keckler's work curated by Bill Dane.

October update

I just returned to Norway after short trips to Mexico (to see my wife plus family) and San Francisco (to see Bill Dane plus family). After a couple of days in Albany together we both ended up with a small list of homework/to-dos; hoping to establish whether the ideas that originated around the kitchen table were as sensible to pursue as they seemed then and there. Speaking of homework, Bill has updated his galleries which can be found here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/bill_dane/galleries/. Definitely worth a visit.

Upon my return I learned that I've been granted a membership with Forbundet Frie Fotografer, an organization who work to promote photographic art and artists in Norway. I've been following the organization for quite some time and I'm happy to finally be a part of it all.

I'm now working on some updates to the gallery and I hope to finalize these by the end of next month. 

September update

I recently began teaching photography at Skogn folkehøgskole in Skogn, Norway. I'm responsible for creating the curriculum, developing the school trips and investing in proper equipment. This has been my main focus this past month and I will continue to develop the course over the next year. In between planning I have found time to participate in some group shows and I'm planning a solo show next year. An updated resume can be found on my page.  

A shipment of Bill Dane prints is coming my way from Denmark. I'll post more information about the content once the box gets here.

Bill Dane has spent the past month curating 21 wonderful galleries consisting of other people's pictures.  These can be accessed by clicking the picture below or by following this link: https://www.flickr.com/photos/bill_dane/galleries/.
