M and I met M the Younger in Akron on Thursday evening to see the M. C. Escher exhibit at the Akron Art Museum. I’m not sure what to say/write about it. His work is incredible. It would have been nice to have more time looking at some of the prints, but we were not the only folks there that evening. It was the most crowded I’ve ever seen it, and that meant moving along at a faster pace than I would have liked so others could have their turn.
I have to make this a short post today. We’re having friends over for an impromptu picnic on the deck. My outdoor time will be leisurely and fun, relaxing on the deck with good food and great friends. I’ll be back tomorrow (as usual) with some photos from the bike ride I took yesterday.
I hope you’re having a great Saturday and doing something delightfully impromptu, too.
Nice close up. Have fun with your picnic!
Thank you, Eden. 🙂
Looks/sounds like a wonderful exhibit!! Love the image!!!
Thanks, Marcie. 🙂
Have fun with your friends. Lucky you – it’s raining here again – winter in Wellington NZ
Thank you, Judith. 🙂
Hope you get some sunshine soon.
How cool! Escher is one of my favorite artists. Have fun with your picnic!
Thanks, DragonFae. 🙂
These are wonderful! When I saw the first photo, I wasn’t sure if it was a miniature model…. until I scrolled down to the second picture.
Thank you, Michaela. The light was wonderful. 🙂
Great capture of shadows and their effects, Robin, and I too thought the first was a mini-suite of furniture ’til I saw the second shot, such a lovely colour too.
Hope your evening get together went well. xPenx
Thank you, Pen. 🙂
Sounds like a great exhibition! He’s definitely one of the more influential artists of our time.
That’s true, Dana. I did enjoy the exhibit and learned a little along the way. 🙂
