Finch & Ada present: Seven

Seven has always been a lucky number and the curators of Finch & Ada, Elizabeth Barragan and Kathleen Mahoney-Cobb, are using that figure to create a unique photography sale, which I am thrilled to be a part of.

They are only offering seven prints, with seven in each edition. The images were specially selected and sized, and the quality and authenticity are part of the curator’s obsession with details. If you select 3 images, there is superior value. Also a Collector’s Box Set is available while editions last.

Finch & Ada are thinking outside the box, outside the traditional brick and mortar gallery, and are coming up with new, innovative ways to find collectors and supporters. They recently created a pop-up gallery in Chelsea to showcase, The Pleasure is All Mine, a terrific exhibition on happiness and joy that the photo world so sorely needed. It is a pleasure working with two such enthusiastic, hard working, and visionary curators. Now, get shopping!
