Independent Presence opened June 13 at the Green Chalk Contemporary gallery in Monterey, California. The exhibit consists of work from six artists from the Monterey area, all members of the Salon Jane, a group which meets regularly to share their artwork. I have four pieces in this show, all from the Surfacing series, and all using the lith process in the darkroom. The show will be open until August 8 with many events planned. Check the website for more information. This is an exhibit which explores the work of artists trained in the local West Coast photography tradition, who are moving ahead with more experimental work.
