Terra Incognita: the gallery show of Cartographers' Guild maps in Soho, NYC has been extended to the 1st of September. The Soho Gallery for Digital Art thinks the show looks awesome (their words) and has offered the space to us to the end of August!

You can find the details of the show here:

I just hope that they're not extending it to try to recoup money not yet earned or that they don't have anything else scheduled. I'll be positive and think that it's because of demand.

Great job Torstan :-)

Of course it is because of demand....everyone just loves maps!

Sweet, my wish has been granted. I'll be there mid-August, so I guess I'll get to see the show after-all.

Great! Glad to hear it. Gallery show website has now been updated. All the maps will be back up from the 10th of August to the 1st of September.

The gallery has a selection of artists who have work up on the walls when there's no specific exhibition. The gallery decided that they liked our show (most attractive and impressive show they've had so far - their words) so much that that they bumped those artists for all of August for us. They're not doing it to recoup money or any other motive. They just really like the art. So well done to the CG - you've impressed the gallery owners of Soho, NY!

Torstan: don't forget to include yourself in that. From what I can tell, this never would have happened without your hard work.

While we should all be proud of ourselves as a group, I propose a new award icon be created and given to Torstan: Curator :)

Maybe their staff could look through our Finished section and pull some other stuff that they like.

I was thinking that we could offer more up to them.... the three I gave kind of tap me out on my show worthy stuff, but there are other maps here that could easily show

Well, get those rated up to featured maps and we'll put them in the show next summer :)

"Next Summer"...

You're making it sound like this could be a regularly scheduled show... *ponders*

Well let's see how this one goes - but now that I've done all the work of putting together a database of artists and contracts once, it's a lot easier to do this a second time. Also, the gallery really likes the show so I can't see there being any problems there....

This does mean that it's important for people to rate maps in the Finished Maps forum. If a map is featured then it's a great way of selecting maps for a future show.

Plus we have to get around to actually doing the Features. I haven't done any because of the big show banner and I wanted that to stay up as long as the exhibition is going. Once September comes we should start putting them back up, I know we have at least 6 in the pipeline.

Hey, do we have any idea the number of people who have gone through the show since it started? I'm just curious if we are talking a couple hundred or a million.

I'm going in today - I'll see if I can get an estimate from them.

I just dropped by the show a few minutes ago. Fantastic job putting this all together.

I spent a lot of time looking at Mike Schley's maps - not just because they're great maps (they are), but also because they were right in front of the A/C and it is HOT in NYC today!

Glad you enjoyed it :) Yep - it's a bit of a beast today. Just ran back to the office with ice cream. It's really hot out.
