Excited that my art work (non-photography) sold at the Rochester Contemporary Art Center (RoCo) 6×6 show. All works are $20 with the proceeds donated to the running of the center. The 2016 exhibition runs until 17 July 2016 or can be viewed on the RoCo website http://www.roco6x6.org
Met some lovely people at the Chromatic Visions exhibition last night. No matter how organized I try to be it’s always stressful but on the day it all seems to come together. Selecting work to exhibit can be daunting, especially when you only get one chance to make an impression. I can share the what, how and when of an image but the potential buyer has to make their own connections. If the image isn’t speaking to them well it just isn’t. You can’t take it personally.
I want to give special thanks to Dawn Wayand for curating the exhibition and all her hard work ensuring a great turnout and exhibition. Thanks also to the people who decided to purchase an image on the night, this is the best feedback an artist can receive.
I have been invited by curator Dawn Wayand to exhibit as part of a group of up-and-coming artists at Caelum Gallery in Chelsea. This will be a special one-day event, all work will be for sale and includes complimentary drinks and live music by the Jeff Fowler Group.
For catering purposes reservations are highly recommended by visiting https://chromaticvisions.eventbrite.com Although reservation are free guests are encouraged to select a discretionary donation which will go toward Art Start, an organization that nurtures the voices, hearts and minds of New York City’s underserved youth through consistent creative workshops inside homeless shelters, alternative to incarceration programs, and partnering youth agencies.
RECEPTION: Saturday, March 12, 2016, 4 to 8 pm. Everyone is welcome.
LOCATION: Caelum Gallery, 516 West 26th Street, Room 315, New York, NY 10001
Susan Burnstine creates amazing images so to have her select one of my images for the SohoPhoto Krappy Kamera Competition blew me away.
The above image was captured in Central Park on a cold winters day on a holga using a panorama film holder. Check out my lomography page on www.lomography.com for more plastic camera images.

I recently found out that Nonfigureativephoto reviewed the Chemigrams selected for the Soho Photo Gallery Alternative Processes Competition. It’s great to get a review and when its from someone who is an expert in the field its even more rewarding.
Nonfigurativephoto blog is devoted to non-objective photography, especially photography created solely with light and chemicals.
The above image is titled The Grid and was one of my images that was selected for the 2015 Soho Photo Gallery Alternative Processes Competition. The Competition was jured by Joni Sternbach, a visiting artist at Cooper Union and a faculty member at both ICP and the Center for Alternative Photography in NYC where she teaches wet plate collodion. I few years ago I had the chance to hear Joni speak at Photoville, such a lovely person and talented artist.
