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!

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

Summertime, Summertime http://www.absoluteblank.com/blog/2017/7/summer17 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!

Cheers!
Nick


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.

"Chiaroscuro" at the Darkroom Gallery, Essex Junction, VT

Chiaroscuro [kee-ahr-uh-skyoo-roh] is defined as "the distribution of light and shadow in an image" or " the use of deep variations and subtle gradations of light and shade, especially to enhance the delineation of character and for general dramatic purposes". It is also the name of the latest exhibition at the Darkroom Gallery in Essex Junction, Vermont. (I am proud to say that I am a member of their Gallery Masters program, having had my work repeatedly selected by different jurors and curators). It's the first time one of my concert photographs has been selected for a show.

"Historic Gardens of the World" at Filoli House, Woodside, CA
 
Three of my images have been selected to be a part of a mixed media exhibition titled "Historic Gardens of the World" at Filoli House and Gardens in Woodside California. Two of these were actually taken at Filoli itself, and the third at Hearst Castle on the California central coast.
 
Designed between 1915 – 1917 and set against the dramatic backdrop of the northern Santa Cruz mountains in Woodside, California, Filoli is an example of the Golden Age of American garden design and country house architecture. It is an historic site of the National Trust for Historic Preservation and features a 36,000 sq. ft. home and a 16–acre English Renaissance Garden and is considered one of the finest remaining country estates of the early 20th century.
 
The house and grounds are open to the public, and the exhibition will span the most popular summer months. If you live locally and have never visited, now is the time. (Don't forget to take a tour of the historic buildings!)

Receptions THIS WEEK! http://www.absoluteblank.com/blog/2017/2/receptions-this-week Those of you who live in California have a rare opportunity to hang out with me at not one, but two exhibition openings this week! If you are available, I'd love to raise a glass with you at one (or both!) ends of our great State!
 


On THURSDAY Feb 23rd, I will be at Faction Brewing 2501 Monarch Street, Alameda, CA from 6-8pm, at the artists reception for the show "A Point Of Transition". (I have three images in the exhibition). There will be hors d'oeuvres and a no-host bar.

DisconnectDisconnect Disconnect, 2016

"A Point Of Transition" is a group show by members of the Bay Area Photographers Collective (BAPC), and the Alameda Photographers featuring photographs taken in and around the abandoned buildings on Alameda Point's former military base which will soon be demolished as part of the area's redevelopment plan. The selected Photographers were granted special access to the buildings in July 2016, giving them a unique opportunity to document a facility that is usually sealed to the public, and will soon be lost to history.

Regular Viewing Hours:
Wednesdays – Saturdays, Noon – 8pm
Sundays, Noon - 6pm
The show runs February 23 through
March 5, 2017


On SATURDAY Feb 25th, I will be at the 1650 Gallery in the arty Echo Park district of Los Angeles from 7:30 to 10:30pm at the artists reception for "Abstracts: The Alternative Eye". (I have one photograph in the show, and my photo "Up To The Edge" was used for the call-for-entry and marketing image for the show).

The 1650 Gallery is a small basement gallery hidden in a trendy residential neighborhood. It's hard to figure out when it's open, so your best bet to see the show is to come along to the opening reception!

Exhibitions Catch-Up http://www.absoluteblank.com/blog/2016/10/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.

Catalog: A Sense of Place

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.

Night StormNight Storm Night Storm

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.

ForestForest Forest

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

The Catalog for the exhibition is available from Blurb:

Catalog: Man in The Landscape

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!

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.

H2O http://www.absoluteblank.com/blog/2015/12/h2o Water is fundamental to life, and a signature part of our Planet. It takes many forms and many moods - which makes it a popular subject for photography. H2O is the title - and theme - of the upcoming exhibition at the Darkroom Gallery in Essex Junction, Vermont, curated by Gary Braasch.

Gary is an environmental photojournalist and writer who's work has been published by Time, LIFE, New York Times Magazine, Discover, Smithsonian, National Geographic and Scientific American among many others. He received the Ansel Adams Award from the Sierra Club and in 2010 he was named as one of the Forty Most Influential Nature Photographers by Outdoor Photography magazine.

The exhibition runs from December 10th through January 16th 2016.

I'm very lucky to have TWO of my images "Shore Line", and "Playing on the Edge of the World" selected for the show. Both images will be on display in the gallery:
