As always, this is on a first come first served basis so please plan to arrive early.

Enjoy the movie. I can’t make it as it’s our 9th wedding anniversary that night and we are seeing another friend/B&B’s art opening. So, if you don’t want to see the movie, consider this option instead:

midnight or so, photos by elli rader – 318 cafe, 318 water st, excelsior

featuring the music of ryan paul and the ardent

elli says:

i bought a very old house in a small rural town about three years ago, and i have spent a lot of time exploring the area on foot, on bike, and in my car. i am in love with the various stages of decay of the houses and barns, and what passes for livable structures on working farms. as soon as i moved out here i wanted to photograph them, but felt it had already been done. maybe not these particular barns, but barns in general. over the dark winters i grew to love the way the structures appear to change –or disappear- after dark. some of them are lit in very strange ways and some are not lit at all and are nearly impossible to find on tiny gravel roads. at harvest time, the farmers work around the clock, so there are enormous tractors and combines lighting up dust clouds in the middle of the night, squeezing every last hour of work out of the season. it’s startling and beautiful, and more than a little scary to be out there in the middle of nowhere, alone, at night; especially when you are as afraid of the dark (and farmers with shotguns) as i am.

the results of a summer of shooting these barns, farms, the sky and the country after dark will be on display beginning wednesday october 21 at the 318 cafe in excelsior.

please join me for the opening reception from 6 to 8 pm
and stay for the music – some of my favorite local musicians
will be performing from 8 to 10 pm.

great music:
ryan paul & the ardent
