Jones Gallery for May

I have mentioned before that the Jones Gallery in Kansas City, MO, has become a dependable supporter of my work. Their May Group Art Show will again include two by me, both #ArchitecturalAbstracts. Although I usually seek to reduce or eliminate graininess when editing photos, I did the opposite with Checkered Past. It’s the Monroe Building, one of Chicago’s historic treasures that is regularly featured on the Chicago Architecture Foundation’s Open House tour. Light levels were low inside, which tends to make for grainier photos, so I was partly just going where the photo seemed to want to go. But…

Brand New vs. Well-Traveled

First the brand new: a series of photographs tagged #SandAbstracts. I’ve been working on these since I got back from my trip to Dauphin Island in December 2020. I spent the entire last day I was on Dauphin Island hiking as far as I could go along the 10-mile beach that constitutes the west end of the island and was captivated by the interaction between waves and sand. Of the six or so images in the series so far, this is the first to be accepted into a juried show. The show is called “Sky’s the Limit.” It’s an online…

50@50

That’s 50 artworks at $50 each. It’s a show the North Central Louisiana Arts Council has put on for the past several years, and it has been quite successful. This year it is all online for the first time. Here’s a link to NCLAC’s new online gallery: 50@50 Show. What I mean by “successful” in this case is that people are often ready to snap up small works at $50 a pop! I just checked and this year’s offerings are selling like hotcakes. If you want something, better get on with it! I have two pieces in the show. My…

Westward, Ho!

Last week I shipped a piece to Dallas and tomorrow I ship a piece to Denver. It’s gratifying to have my work accepted in major cities. I might even be able to drive to Dallas for the closing reception! The show in Dallas is called “Animal, Mineral or Vegetable? Overlooked Art National,” and the venue is Denver Metro Arts Contemporary. In their own words, this show features artists whose subject is the still life object, or animal art without the context of the landscape or figure, a category they deem “over-looked.” “Animal art” is not quite how I view my…

Two Online

Biafrin, the international all-in-one online art marketing platform, has accepted two more of my works. Untitled (Union Station) is in the Exhbizone Winter Festival international show, which you can view here. I remember so well the day I made this shot in Chicago! My Chicago photog friends and I went to Union Station to shoot, not only because it was cold and snowy outside but because we were participating in a Drink & Click©. The theme, as I recall, had something to do with old stuff, and Union Station is not only old itself but full of old stuff. We…
