Summer is winding down before we know it, so we’re seizing the moment to break out the Rose and Prosecco one last time and pretend like its not going to happen.

We haven’t had the time to curate a whole new collection to show you, but we do have a few new things in store. We’ve coordinated our event with Kevin Duris at Duris Studios who is having a reception next door. He will be showcasing great new jewelry that celebrates pearls. So that got us thinking. A pearl starts out as a bit of grit yet turns into something glamourous…and our show idea was born!

Blink’s owner, and resident photographer, Alexander Nesbitt has a penchant for traveling to some extremely gritty locales. So we’re going to dust off some of the badass (excuse our language) images from places you’d probably be afraid to go, just for your viewing pleasure.

For the glamour? Think of it more in terms of presentation. If you came to our last event, or have visited the gallery in the last few months you may have seen the dye sublimation metal prints. Well, we’ve added to the collection with two of Sandy’s best-selling Newport images. If you haven’t seen a dye-sub print yet – it’s basically like looking at a photograph in hi-definition, it puts your television to shame. A glittering and glamourous image presentation, you have to see it to believe it!

Along the way, we have discovered there is a magical intersection of grit and glamour that exists in some of Sandy’s images, like the one above. So let’s also celebrate that magic – to grit and glamour!
