On June 1, Van Bulck Photography moved into Lens Work Gallery in the Village Shops at Pawleys Island. Previously, Van Bulck Photography was represented by Island Art, also in the Village Shops. Island Art “went coop” and chose not to include photographers in the coop. I considered several options in the area, wanting to maintain a presence in Pawleys Island. Lens Work Gallery, a well-established photography gallery, appeared to be a great fit. After meeting with one of the gallery owners and presenting my portfolios of wild mustangs and coastal birds, along with a brief introduction to the Water Colors series, I was accepted into the gallery. Lens Work Gallery is owned by Mark Hilliard and Phil Duvel.
Van Bulck Photography will also be moving into the Elephant Ear Gallery, an eclectic coop art gallery in Sumter, SC in July. The Elephant Ear includes the work of local painters and sculptors, along with custom embroidery, custom framing and jewelry. They also have recycled art and interesting crafts. My photography will add a new dimension to the Elephant Ear. Being part of a coop gallery like the Elephant Ear will be a new experience. I’m looking forward to the adventure.
