In addition to a shared passion for the sport of Athletics, my brother and I also share a love of the arts. It’s amazing the similarities we recognize in athletes that are driven to surpass what was once imagined to be incapable of any human being and artists that strive to manifest visions that are seemingly incomprehensible to the average viewer. It inspires us and drives us forward in everything we do. In fact we’ve both dedicated our lives to shining a light on and supporting those individuals whom endeavor to achieve such acts of greatness.
If you’re reading this post then you are already familiar with some of our work together through RunBlogRun.com, but I’d like to introduce you to ANNO DOMINI Gallery. It was founded in 2000 by my brother, Brian Eder, and his partner, Cherri Lakey, in the city of San Jose, CA the vastland of Silicon Valley. For nearly thirteen years now they’ve been presenting artists from all around the globe, often debuting many for the first time in the U.S. and like those that inspire our work here at RunBlogRun, risking it all for nothing more than a potential place in history.
I’ve included a copy of their latest newsletter for you to check out after the jump. I’d like to encourage you to sign up for it too and keep an eye on some great emerging talent they represent and to support their efforts however you can.
