Six-Word Story

Six-Word Story

August 25–November 2, 2019 at Front Porch Gallery

August 27–November 24, 2019 at Oceanside Museum of Art

According to literary legend, while lunching with friends at the Algonquin Hotel, Ernest Hemingway wagered that he could craft an entire story in six words. After each contributed $10 to the pot, Hemingway wrote the winning story: “For sale: baby shoes, never worn.”

Produced in collaboration with Front Porch Gallery in Carlsbad, this exhibition presents imaginative, whimsical, and introspective photographs with accompanying six-word stories, creating a dynamic interaction for the viewer. Artwork will be on view concurrently at Front Porch Gallery in Carlsbad August 25–November 2, 2019.

On October 7, artworks on display at the gallery will be moved to the museum, and vice versa so that all artworks will be displayed at each of the venues, so be sure to see them all.
