Exhibitions Catch-Up

Wow. It's nearly "Giant Pumpkin Time" - the air is getting cooler and the days are getting shorter. It's been a while since my last post, so I thought I'd share a quick summary of what's been going on over the last few months.

In July, I had two pieces accepted for the show A Sense of Place - a juried group exhibition at Photoplace Gallery, Middlebury, Vermont. Work was selected by Jane Fulton Alt, award winning photographer, winner of the 2007 Illinois Arts Council Fellowship Award, and multiple Ragdale Foundation Fellowships. My image "The Patient Spirit" was picked for the Gallery, and "Here Comes The Sun" was selected for the On-Line Annexe.

The Catalog for this exhibition (click below to view it and see all the images) is available from Blurb:

In August, My image "Night Storm" was selected for the exhibition The Sea: Above and Below at the 1650 Gallery in Los Angeles' Echo Park neighborhood. This image was actually taken while on a recent vacation in Greece and shows lightning at night over the Mediterranean.

This month (October) I am back at Photoplace Gallery again in the exhibition Man In The Landscape - a group exhibition juried by international award-winning photographer, Brett Erickson. My image: "Forest" was selected for the Gallery. The exhibition is on until October 18th.


Pictures from the gallery, showing all the pictures in the exhibition, are posted on Facebook, here.

Also in September, the Bay Area Photographers Collective (BAPC) held their annual All Members Exhibition Vanishing Point at Mullen Brothers Gallery, San Francisco, California USA.

Images were selected by the BAPC Exhibitions Committee. My images "Vanishing Point #1" and "Vanishing Point #3" were shown in the exhibition.

Vanishing Point #1 is one of four of my images in the 2016 BAPC Yearbook. This is also available from Blurb:

OK. Onwards to 2017...  Promise I'll post more pictures soon!

No, it doesn't mean the sun has finally peeked through the rain clouds, but rather a that those of you in or near the Portland area should check out "FOCUS: Light and Shadow", a juried exhibition  at the Black Box Gallery in Portland, Oregon starting Friday April 1st, and running through the 20th. I will have an image on display in the gallery, as well as a second image that has been chosen for the online "annex" of the main exhibition.

Images from the main gallery and the online "annex" are available online.

It's been a while since I posted anything -- promise I'll do better. Here's an image from my recent Japan trip:

Refuge from the World

Very unusually (for me) this was taken on my phone! (an LG G4, if you care)
