Vent Haven Director Annie Roberts and I went on a wonderful Vent Haven adventure this past weekend. Famed artist, photographer, and director Matthew Rolston invited us to attend his "Talking Heads: The Vent Haven Portraits" gallery show at the Greenville County Museum of Art in Greenville, South Carolina. In addition to the show, we attended a gallery talk and reception with Matthew and the incredible staff of the museum.
If you are relatively new to the vent community, you may be unfamiliar with Matthew's 2012 photography of many of the dummies in the Vent Haven collection. His book, "Talking Heads: The Vent Haven Portraits" is stunning. At convention 2013, Matthew gave a lecture on the production of the book and graciously autographed dozens of copies for the conventioneers.
