Three Images Selected for Exhibition in Oregon

July 17, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

I’m happy to share that I have three images included in the Lightbox Gallery’s “Let the Sun Shine In” national exhibition which runs from July 15 to September 12, 2020.

This exhibition will hang in the Lightbox Gallery in beautiful Astoria, Oregon, and it will also be posted online.

The Lightbox is one of my favorite galleries, and Chelsea and Michael keep trying new things, which is very important during these challenging times for art venues.
The peer-based jurying process for this exhibition was different, and it’s explained on the website front page.
So I’m happy to have three images selected out of 251 submitted. And all images in the exhibition are visually compelling and high quality. So congrats to my fellow artists!
If you are an art photographer, please consider submitting for future exhibitions at the Lightbox or become a supporting member. It’s a serious struggle to sustain an art gallery these days. The Lightbox has given much to our community over the years and we all benefit from their platform.


"Marina" Selected for 6th Annual National Photography Competition & Exhibition

July 17, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

I am honored to announce that my image, “Marina” has been selected for the 6th Annual National Photography Competition & Exhibition sponsored by the Allegany Arts Council in Cumberland, Maryland.

This has become a very popular and competitive event, and I had been planning to use the opening in gorgeous western Maryland as a stepping stone to visit good friends in the state. The pandemic has transitioned the exhibition to an online event, which will open Saturday, June 27 and runs until July 18th.

The event website is nicely done with sections for invited artists, the digital gallery, and award winners (which will be announced on the 27th).

This is the second national exhibition for which “Marina” has been selected—earlier this year it appeared in the Midwest Center for Photography’s Annual Juried Art Exhibition.

Marina conveys the geometry and humanity of the boathouse community common to marinas in many places.

Three New Prints Selected for 2020 Midwest Center for Photography Juried Exhibition

March 03, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

I am honored to have three photographic prints selected for the 2020 Midwest Center for Photography Juried Exhibition. This marks the third consecutive year that I’ve participated in this fine art event. I’m especially happy that these are new works I’ve created within the past year. Gotta keep moving!

The exhibition is at the Center’s Wichita gallery and runs from March 6-27th.

This first image, The Other Side of the Tracks, was photographed in the light rail transit tunnel in downtown Seattle. The site is undergoing construction which has visually changed things.

The Other Side of the Tracks

This second image, Welcome To The Working Week, was produced for a group exhibition entitled Visual Music, in which the artist had to create artwork that reflected a song that one liked a lot. Mine was the initial cut from Elvis Costello's first album, My Aim Is True. The image captures the essence of commuters entering downtown Seattle from a busy ferry terminal.

Visual Music Exhibition Opened August 2nd

The Visual Music exhibition opened on Friday night, August 2 at the Vashon Center for the Arts.

The goal of Visual Music is to create an image that is inspired by a song.

I have two artworks in the exhibition:

Welcome to the Working Week
Inspired by the Elvis Costello song, some elements of this piece should be recognizable by commuters who travel to downtown Seattle via the water taxi. And other elements are, let’s say, transformational.

trail of broken hearts
The k.d. lang song has such a wistful mood that it brings to mind this photograph of eastern Washington. This place is hot and very dry; the sound of the constant wind underscores a sad feeling about what aspirations were fulfilled here and those that were not.

The Visual Music exhibition runs until August 18th. More info: https://vashoncenterforthearts.org/event/summer-arts-fest-august-2-art-exhibits/
