The Shadow Bids Adieu to Another Artist

Though this is a couple of weeks late, The Shadow was saddened to say good-bye to another artist from the Bay Area.

On Thursday, March 29, 2007, Photographer Jo Farrell held her last solo art exhibit in the Bay Area. The exhibit was shown at the ARTWorkSF Gallery in Downtown San Francisco.

For the past few years, Jo has taken stunning black and white photos in China, Cuba and Tibet. This exhibit allowed her to say good-bye to her fans as Jo prepared to move to Hong Kong to continue her work.

Jo was one of the first artists that The Shadow met when he came into contact with ARTWorkSF. Her work is some of the best photography that we have ever seen. Jo published some of her photos in a coffee table book entitled Jo Farrell Photography: 1.

This exhibit has now ended and Jo has left the Bay Area. However, you can still keep up with her doings and buy her book and photos at her website.
