Summer 2019 Update

August 04, 2019  •  Leave a Comment

This summer has been anything but a time to kick back and relax.  I’ve had a run of good luck with work being accepted into several exhibitions. It's been hectic, but kind of fun. Here’s an update...

 

2019 Inyo County Shoot Out

I’m delighted that two works depicting the ranching life of the Owens Valley, “Cornered” and “”Done,” were juried into the Inyo County Photo Contest. Both were taken in Lone Pine, which is in the Owens Valley at the foot of the Eastern Sierra.

Cornered


I was particularly taken with the body language and the look on the faces of the calves.
 

 

Done.Done. Done.

The work may not be done, but the glove certainly is. I can only imagine the wearer's frustration at the last and final tear led to its decorating a fencepost.

These are two of 40 works that are on exhibit at the Visitor’s Center in Lone Pine from July 30 through November 1, 2019. If you find yourself on California Route 395 and passing through the Owens Valley, stop by.

California through the Lens

Concurrently at TAG in their Loft Gallery, members of Photographic and Digital Artists (PADA) will be exhibiting works depicting “California through the Lens.” California defies simple description, which makes capturing the essence of California photographically a challenge. Spanning an incredibly diverse range of geographies and landscapes – real and imagined, it is a place of mind as much as of reality. The members of PADA present their visions of California. The piece I will be showing is a slice of life, a view into a sushi bar in the Sawtelle district on the West side, also known as Japantown.
