Recent Exhibitions

I have had the pleasure of being in two group exhibitions in the past month.

First up I had “Silence” exhibited in the group exhibition “The Dark Of The Night”  at the PhotoHaus Gallery here in Vancouver. As always its great to see ones work on the wall.

Secondly I had the full series of “Temptations” exhibited in the “Lab Art Show 2”, a mixed art show by Glitz Entertainment over 2 days in the fabulous Heritage Hall on Main and 15th here in Vancouver, this was a very busy and entertaining event and it was great to be a part of it.

 

I will leave you with the images I had in the shows. They are all for sale in limited edition prints, if your interested or just wish to see them in print, don’t hesitate to contact me.

Slideluck Potshow Vancouver – Exhibition – February 2nd – You’re invited

Jens Kristian Balle's works will be shown at Slideluck Potshow Vancouver

Slideluck Potshow Vancouver

My work got chosen for the first Slideluck Potshow in Vancouver, here is some info:

“Slideluck is a New York City-based, non-profit arts organization that provides an opportunity for artists and arts-appreciators to gather around food, friends, artwork and music for an unforgettable night.

Slideluck is a forum for exposing artists, curators, reps, and editors to new work, while infusing the arts community with a non-commercial vitality and refreshing exchange. Slideluck has become a place for community members to come together and share their appreciation for food and art in a casual, inclusive atmosphere. More than anything else, Slideluck is an exhilarating and stimulating occasion that is meant to remind us of why we create in the first place.

The evening begins with a bountiful potluck dinner and then the lights are dimmed, the crowd is hushed, and a spectacular slideshow showcasing the work of local and international artists commences . . .”

The event kicks off  on February 2nd at 7pm in the Woodward’s Atrium. Tickets can be purshased here:

I had a total of 10 images in the show split between 3 series. The night went great with a massive turn up and was a lot bigger than I had expected… and as that wasn’t enough, the judges even choose me as the grand prize winner for the competition. Overall, great night.

CAPIC Vancouver portfolio speed review

I had the pleasure of attending the annual CAPIC portfolio speed review last week, which took place at the Langara College here in Vancouver. This was a great networking event and a great opportunity to get my work reviewed by photo buyers from all around Vancouver.

I really appreciate all the great feedback, tips, advices and critique that I received, so much information in such a short time.

I just wanted to thank CAPIC Vancouver for making an event like this possible, all the sponsors(THEY, Sugar Studios, Hasselblad USA, Langara, Pinter Creative StudioCAKE Imagery, Beau Photo, Flashpoint, Hemlock and Shrapnel Design(hope I didn’t miss any)) for supporting it and of course all the the reviewers. Thank you all!

 

On a side-note I also won a gift certificate for Beau Photo which should not be hard to use:)
