It’s an indication about how negligent I have been with this blog that I have had two images selected in juried exhibits in the last few months but have not announced anything here. So just to bring the record up to date I am pleased to report that my image “Rural Delivery” was selected in the Allegany Arts Council national juried photography exhibit, which was juried by Steven Perloff, publisher of the “Photo Review”.
And maybe the best news was that this print was sold out of the exhibit. Sometimes it works!
Also the image “Keystone, McDowell County, West Virginia” was selected for Tamarack’s annual “Best of West Virginia” exhibit. The exhibit is currently on display through August 7 in the David L. Dickirson Fine Art Gallery at Tamarack in Beckley, West Virginia.
This image was from one of my visits to McDowell County, where I have sought to capture something of the environment deep in coal country. I have been in search of some understanding of the conditions in that area with the goal of finding a story that I might tell with my photographs.
Note on Upcoming Exhibit
The image, “Rural Delivery” is from my September 2015 road trip that took me 6,600 miles through 12 states in three weeks.
It will be included in my upcoming exhibit scheduled for October in the Fire Hall Gallery in Charles Town. Specific dates and times will be forthcoming in a future blog post (I promise!)
I have only put a few of the images out so the work in this exhibit will be mostly fresh but you can see a preview of some of the images if you click on the category “Road Trip September 2015”. All of these images were processed on my laptop from various hotels along the way so they are very preliminary. But they’ll give you an idea of some of the wonderful things I saw and photographed.
