SHOWS & EXHIBITIONS: I've been a photographer - both an amateur and professional journalist - for more than 40 years. Until recently, I never displayed my work 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 or will be soon.
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, took place Feb. 17, 2011, in Austin. The gala 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.
