I met Marty Weiss four years ago. A creative soul and founder of two successful advertising companies, he kept finding himself in love with the skill and art of the photographers he worked with. He wanted to support them. He wanted to participate in getting their work to a larger audience. So, totally on the side, he created Meter Gallery, an online photography gallery that features limited edition, signed photographs from contemporary artists that he has personally met (along the way he also founded the Friday Photo Gallery here at AT with me, which he helps curate every other week)...
It's all a labor of love.
On Fridays I like to highlight artwork because I find it uplifting. It's one of the few things that we bring into our homes that has no obvious purpose. It creates a connection, it makes us feel good, and everyone has their own preference.
For Escapes Month, for Labor Day weekend and for no particular reason except that I hope that you like it (all of you), here are a lot of stunning photos from Meter Gallery. Check these out and dig around for more. Take full advantage of this lush and remarkable resource. And Happy Labor Day Weekend!
