SHOWS & EXHIBITIONS: I've been a photographer - mostly as a professional journalist - for almost 50 years. Until the last decade, I never displayed my work - other than what ran in one of my newspapers - for anyone other than immediate family. In 2010, my daughter convinced me to join her in her home/studio as part of the East Austin Studio Tour. Since then, I've taken part in another E.A.S.T. and a separate show in Austin, exhibited my work on a number of occasions at the Downtown Tyler ArtWalk and created this website. It's been a great ride. Here's where I've been, but since retiring I have joined the Rowlett Texas Photography Club; so who know where you miht see me next.
Downtown Tyler ArtWalk: Thanks to everyone who came out to see my photos at recent ArtWalks (March and September). In two years, the event has grown to become a major Saturday quarterly festival. The crowds were great, and venue at Liberty Hall was wonderful. The September ArtWalk makes five times I have shown my work downtown.
East Austin Studio Tour, over two weekends in November. In 2010, I was one of about 250 artists in 150 studios, and my story was told on video by KLRU, the local PBR station. The number of artists and venues grew in E.A.S.T 2011. It was lots of fun; a good show. If you are in Austin the weekend of Nov. 10-11, 2012, I'll be showing my photos at the home/studio of Christina Berry and Errek Hill. You'll find them on the program, not me, since I'm only there on the first weekend.
CulinArt 2011, A Gala of Surreal Fantasy, was Feb. 17, 2011, in Austin. It benefited the Wright House Wellness Center. Organizers saw my work at E.A.S.T. and asked me to donate a photo to the silent auction. My photo "Paintballs Not Bullets" was awarded an honorable mention and earned me a place in a special exhibition at the Pump Project June 11-24.
Wright House Culinart Winning Artists Exhibition, ran from June 11 through June 25, 2011 at the Pump Project Art Complex in East Austin. I met some wonderful people and displayed some of my photos alongside the work of three other award-winning artists.
Other displays of my work: One of my photos, Got Your Back, is on display in the Vietnam gallery of the American Freedom Museum in Bullard, TX. That same photo is also in the lobby of the Texas State Veterans Home north of Tyler, TX.'
