After an usually cold and snowy winter here on MV, signs of spring are slowly emerging, such as the snowdrops along Music Street. Along with the much coveted arrival of warmer weather, my public appearance schedule has changed slightly from my last newsletter. So here are the changes:
(1) My DVD signing and photo exhibit at CALUMET photo in Cambridge (150 First Street) will not be , but postponed instead until .
(2) A special evening in honor of my life's work, which now spans 50 years of photojournalism, will include a lecture and image presentation of highlights from my new DVD "Through the Lens." It is still scheduled for next at PATHWAYS in Chilmark from . I'm happy to announce that my beloved niece Sally Taylor will perform a special selection of music for the occasion. Food and drinks will be served, and the event is free! Get there on the early side, as we expect a possible SRO situation.
(3) A new appearance at the John Varvatos clothing outlet at Colpey Place has just been added to my schedule. I will be on hand to kick off their "Dress to Kill" tailored clothing event from . Many of my iconic music photos are on permanent display at their location, and I will talk informally about the stories behind some of the pictures, as well as signing copies of "Through the Lens." The event is open to the public, free of charge, and refreshments will be served!
(4) The SIMON GALLERY is scheduled to reopen for the season at our location at 54 Main Street in Vineyard on the of Mother's Day weekend, . We will be sporting a "new look," the details of which will appear in my next regular newsletter.
Speaking of which, many of you have been asking when you can help decide which photos to use in my 2015 Vineyard Calendar. I will post them in early April when I publish my next full length newsletter as well.
Finally, my new DVD "Through the Lens" has been garnering nice attention, write ups, and some amazing testimonials. While you can still order personally autographed copies on my website, it's worldwide release and distribution is scheduled for , and will also be available on Amazon at that time. Stay tuned! -Peter Simon-
