The year began with an email the made me smile, what better way to start the year. Sin City Gallery in Las Vegas are staging a big exhibition to launch of the book "12 Inches of Sin VI" which includes my image "Neon Rope Bodyguard".
Sin City have applied to, "your arts and culture departments to see if they might sponsor your trip to the United States. I will keep you informed should they agree. If they say yes, we will certainly reimburse you for your travel."
Which would be lovely since I don't get to attend exhibitions of my work as much as I'd like.
They are currently finalizing the venue for Saturday, July 14 and 15th. This year's theme is ‘Fear and Loathing’ and it is a week before Hunter S. Thompson’s birthday. Thompson wrote 'Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas' at the Mint Casino in Downtown Las Vegas.
The event is scheduled to be at the Mint Casino. The Mint Casino was purchased by Binions. The Mint has not been open to the public for several decades. They, however, will be taking over an entire floor of the old Mint Casino and enjoy the roof deck with incredible views of Las Vegas.
The email closes, "we are excited about the opportunity to exhibit your work in this very historic building."
I'm excited too.
