The Geithner Encounter
Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner visited LabourLove
LabourLove was honored to host treasury secretary Timothy Geithner during his tour of Golden Belt on February 18th. Congressman Price and Congressman Miller were also on the tour which was lead by Andy Rothschild. Mr. Geithner revealed to us that his own photography helped him pay for college, but that he doesn’t get a chance to pursue it much anymore. I guess fixing the economy is higher on his “to do” list these days. He talked to Lori Vrba about her current show “Safekeeping,” and he almost seemed relaxed for a few minutes as the conversation shifted away from business to the arts. This just goes to show that everyone needs a little art in their life.

Third Friday – “Safekeeping” by Lori Vrba
This third Friday come to see the incredible work by Chapel Hill photographer Lori Vrba.
2009 was a breakout year for Lori. She recently finished a solo show at the prestigious Lishui Photo Festival in China, and participated in group shows in London, New York, Colorado, and Atlanta among others during the year. Her “Safekeeping” series won her critical acclaim at the Photo Alliance Review in San Francisco, and the Atlanta Celebrates Photography Review. She was also featured in the magazines “Shots,” “Burn,” and “File,” and plans to make a solid impression on FotoFest in Houston in March. If you want some local approval to go along with the rest, one of her pieces won Best in Show at The Arts Center in Carrboro in the summer.
If you’ve been thinking about diving into collecting art and photography, now is the time, and Lori is the artist to invest in. Small prints in extremely limited editions start at just $300 so you can afford to fill your portfolio. Her work will only be available for a few more weeks so don’t wait too long to come by.
Saturday, February 20th @ 7:00 pm – 9:30 pm
