Join us for our Louisville Photo Biennial Reception celebrating new work by Amber Estes Thieneman. The reception will be on Friday September 25 from 5:30-8:30PM at Block Party Handmade Boutique’s downtown location.

This body of work is collaboration between artist and viewer. Each original photograph of nature has elements of reflection and is printed on aluminum. Participation requires you, the viewer, to record your perception of the image in an accompanying book. This can be in the form of a title, a mini-story, a memory, etc.

The show will be up through October 31st.
