Introducing New Images

I am pleased to share work from my newest series concerning the relationship between The Earth and ourselves. This work will be part of an exhibit at the Monterey Museum of Art this fall (see previous post).

My new series is based on ideas about the human species and the relative permanence of the Earth, with questions about our brief time here. This unique moment on the planet feels unsettling and desires perspective. My intention is to provide intimate suggestions of our place in this liminal state, reflecting on the planet’s origins, our own lineage, our physical and spiritual presence, and the future of humans being. All prints are handmade in the darkroom using the lith process.

Monterey Museum of Art Exhibit opening

I am pleased to introduce my newest work at the Monterey Museum of Art as part of the exhibit Salon Jane: The Ethereal Zone. Opening night is September 20, and the show runs to November 26. The exhibit includes work from 6 women who compose Salon Jane (an artist collective) in a great variety of mediums, including many analog processes. I am showing 10 new pieces which reflect on the Earth and our relationship to it as human beings, all unique darkroom prints using the lith process.

“Surfacing” Images Published in the Dark Mountain Journal, Issue 13

I am thrilled that two of my “Surfacing” images are included in this anthology of new writing and art exploring what ‘being human’ means in an age of rapid ecological and social change. “The Dark Mountain Project is a network of writers, artists and thinkers who have stopped believing the stories our civilization tells itself. We produce and seek out writing, art and culture rooted in place, time and nature.”

Spring Lecture Series: Salon Jane at MMA

I will be part of the May 7th panel discussion at the Monterey Museum of Art which focuses on women in art. The 6 Salon Jane artists will talk about their individual experiences as artists and how their unique artistic challenges advance them toward the future. They will also discuss how meeting regularly as a group offers a sense of community while deepening individual artistic growth and innovation. Some will show images of their work.

Art Intersection Exhibits “Independent Presence”

Salon Jane is a group of six artists with roots in Monterey Peninsula photography who meet regularly to support each other, and who recently have begun to show their work together. After two successful shows in the Monterey area, first at the Green Chalk Gallery and then in Sand City, the “Independent Presence” exhibit moves to Gilbert, Arizona, to the creative and inspiring Art Intersection photography center.  As a member of Salon Jane, I will have my underwater and “Surfacing” work in this exhibit.  A panel discussion precedes the opening on January 14th.  Link to exhibit at Gilbert, Arizona.

The Royal Photographic Society International Print Competition 159

The RPS International Print Competition is the oldest juried competition of its kind.  This is the 159th competition!  I am very honored to have 3 images chosen in the finals, and my image “Shipwreck and Baitfish” to be shown in the top 100 exhibited in the UK for the next year.  The show will begin in London, opening October 13th during “Photoblock” in East London.  Then it will travel around England, Northern Ireland, and Scotland. I respect this competition because of its unique judging process: actual prints were part of the final round! 

Berlin Foto Biennale features Julia Margaret Cameron Juried Finalists

I am honored to be exhibiting three underwater images in the Berlin Foto Biennale, held from October 6-29, 2016.  The exhibit features a large number of images from several juried competitions, providing an amazing look at what is current in photography right now.  Three of my underwater images were chosen in the Julia Margaret Cameron juried competition this year, in the Fine Art and the Landscape/Nature categories. 

 

Photostock Festival 2016

I’m excited to participate in the June Photostock Festival in Harbor Springs, Michigan this year.  I’ll be sharing my work with a new tribe of people who have been gathering there for the last ten years.  Mostly photographers, this group shares their artwork and gear, attends workshops, and from what I understand, it is a place to make lifelong friends who are fellow travelers.  Thanks to the driving force behind this event, Bill Schwab, for his hard work and vision.
