musings from an absolutely blank mind
Wanna see more photos? New stuff? Experiments? Images that didn't make my website?
If so, you can now follow me on Instagram - I'll be trying to put something new out there every couple of days or so.
I really wasn't sure what sort of thing to post at first. Some artists post finished work. Some post photos of their cat. In the end I finally decided to just go my own way! "Miscellaneous" is the theme. Enjoy!

We are already well into 2018 and so much has happened, in life and photography.
The BAPC exhibition "AnthropoScene" just closed after a successful run at the ARC Gallery in San Francisco. 14 of us had images in the show, which looked great and got some good foot traffic in the South-of-Market area of the city.
I'm thrilled to have work in another show at the A Smith gallery in Johnson City Texas. The latest exhibition is "Chair", juried by S Gayle Stevens. Two of my images "Clean Area" and "A Disreputable History" have been accepted into the show.
For those visiting Texas:
The Darkroom Gallery in Vermont re-opens after a break, and starts a new year, with its 100th exhibition "Open 2018". The full exhibition can be seen online here. I have two images, "Vanishing Point #1" and "Above and Behind", in the show.

News from Vermont and Texas!
In Vermont one of my mannequin pictures from 2009 is finally in an exhibition! It just goes to show that it's never too late. The juror was William Albert Allard, National Geographic photographer. My image "Models" is in the exhibition "Multiples" which runs until October 22 (and may be extended further) at the Darkroom Gallery in Essex Junction, Vermont.
The catalog is available here: A really fun mix of work.
In Texas, one of my crazy minimalist pictures from Iceland has been juried into the show "Vistas" at the A Smith gallery in Johnson City, TX (just outside Austin). My image is titled "Moons of Jupiter" (I'm a space fan - and was inspired by the end of the amazing Cassini mission to Saturn). If you wonder what this is (spoiler alert!) - it's just a roadside puddle with some rocks and a reflection!
Moons Of Jupiter
Last Chance To See: "Places of Change" at the Pina Zangaro gallery in San Francisco runs through October 19th (ring the bell to be let in in if the door is closed!).
Opening Soon: The traveling exhibition "TPS:26 The International" will be The Center for Contemporary Arts in Abilene, TX, November 22, 2017, through January 27, 2018
Yes it's Summertime, and if you're hot, the galleries are cool!
What's up this month?
1) I have 2 pieces in a new exhibition at PhotoPlace Gallery in Vermont (details below).
2) Last chance to see: "Historic Gardens of the World" at Filoli house in Woodside CA. The exhibition is up until Sunday August 6th. It's a mixed media exhibition in the Filoli visitor and information center. (Note that you don't need to purchase admission to the house, just to see the exhibition) (I have 3 images in the show. Details in earlier posts)
3) The show "Reflect and Engage" at The Image Flow in Mill Valley, CA. is still on until August 25th. (Including one image of mine. See details in earlier posts)
4) The exhibition "TPS 26 - The International Competition" was extended through July 30 at the Wayne Stark Galleries in College Station, TX. Now the show moves on to Precision Camera & Video in Austin, TX—where it will hang in their gallery from August 14 through September 29, 2017. Next on the traveling circuit will be The Center for Contemporary Arts in Abilene, TX, November 22, 2017, through January 27, 2018, followed by Options Gallery at Odessa College in Odessa, TX, where it concludes in spring 2018. (I have 2 images in this show)
I hope your summer is going well!
NEW: "Portals" at PhotoPlace Gallery, Middlebury, VT
A portal can be an architectural feature: a gate, a doorway, a window, a mirror, or a tunnel, that frames or isolates or adds a new dimension to the image. In a fictional sense, a portal is also a magical doorway that connects two locations in space or time. This new exhibition at PhotoPlace Gallery explores all those aspects. I have two images in the show: One in the gallery, and one in the online annexe. The show runs from August 16, 2017 - September 9, 2017.
The full exhibition can be seen online here: https://photoplacegallery.com/portals/
A full color catalog is available from Blurb books:
Hey June! What's up? The heat, yes, but also some new photography exhibitions you should go see.
I hope your summer is off to a good start and you are keeping cool.
DON"T FORGET: If you live in the Bay Area, the exhibitions at Filoli House and The Image Flow are now open, and TPS 26 is open in Texas for another week, before it moves to a new location.
In addition, I have new work in exhibitions opening in Vermont and Los Angeles.

NEW: "Abstraction" at The Darkroom Gallery, Essex Junction, VT
Abstraction in art and photography is defined as the use of a visual language of color, shape, form, and line to create an image that may exist with an independence from visual references in the real world. Images for this exhibition were selected by Blue Mitchell, an independent publisher, curator, educator, and photographer, Based in Portland, OR. As usual, artists featured in the exhibition come from around the world. The Darkroom Gallery is in Essex Junction, Vermont, and I am currently a member of their Gallery Masters program.
