Hasted Kraeutler will present Don’t Quit Your Day Job, photographs by gallery owners. The exhibition is a lighthearted indulgence in the fantasy of “what might have been” for these lovers of photog¬raphy had they not decided to pursue their day jobs.
Don’t Quit Your Day Job, is equally a celebration of the gallery owners’ careers and contributions to contemporary art and photography, highlighting the origins in creating photography and art that led them to own galleries in the first place. While no one story is true of all the participants in this exhibition, many of them have practiced photography before and during their current careers as gallerists, while others moved from creating to representing photography, commercially, many years ago (and hardly ever looked back). Hasted Kraeutler is honored to host the work of its colleagues in the business.
The artists are: DEBORAH BELL, KIM BOURUS, BRIAN CLAMP, DAVID FAHEY, ZACH FEUER, MICHAEL FOLEY, JEFFREY FRAENKEL, JESSICA FREDERICKS, SARAH HASTED, STEVEN KASHER, ALAN KLOTZ, JOSEPH KRAEUTLER, PETER MACGILL, LAURENCE MILLER, ROBERT MANN, JANET RUSSEK, JACK SHAINMAN, ROSE SHOSHANA and SASHA WOLF.
While some of the photographs are on loan for exhibition only, most are for sale. The proceeds will be donated to Lotus House Women’s Shelter, a quiet enclave in the heart of one of Miami’s poorest neighborhoods.
