Prints on display from Il Palio di Siena at Art Walk

Promotional image for Conrad Chavez photos at November 2015 Greenwood-Phinney Art Walk

Event: November 13, 2015 in Seattle

I’m showing a set of photographs from my from my series about Il Palio di Siena, including two large images I haven’t printed before. Il Palio is the centuries-old traditional horse race held twice each summer in Siena, Italy. Attending Il Palio was fascinating to me not because of horse racing specifically, but because of the colorful cultural and historical traditions that drive it.

The event is on November 13, 2015 from 6 to 9 p.m. as part of the monthly Greenwood-Phinney Art Walk. Join me at Nutty Squirrel Gelato, 7212 Greenwood Ave N in Seattle. (See location on Google Maps).

I ate a lot of gelato while attending Il Palio, so I am grateful to Nutty Squirrel Gelato for hosting my Italian photographs in an appropriate venue. In addition to the delicious treats available at Nutty Squirrel, there will be Art Walk-only art discounts and affordable gifts. I will also have additional prints and images that are not already on the walls. Hope to see you there!

If you can’t make it to the event, the photographs are on display throughout November 2015. You can also visit my Palio di Siena project website to see an extended photo essay and video of the works that I continue to create from this ongoing project.

Also, by a complete coincidence, SIFF (Seattle International Film Festival) is screening a documentary about Il Palio on November 14, 2015, the day after this event, as part of their Cinema Italian Style series. I haven’t seen it, but the trailer looks promising. For more information and a preview, see: Palio
