We hope to be at the opening on Saturday October 5th, most likely towards the end of it. If you'd like to meet with us at the show please send me a message and we'll work out any details. We hope you will be able to see the show in person during the run of the show from Thursday October 3rd to Sunday November 10th 2019; but regardless, I will try to take some photographs to share while I'm there.
