“Juror’s Choice” Encore
In case you missed it in Hagerstown, I will be showing the “Juror’s Choice” exhibit in the Fire Hall Gallery in Charles Town, WV. The exhibit is being shown in conjunction with the Washington Street Artists’ Cooperative located in the Charles Town Visitors’ Center, 109 North George Street. The exhibit will be on display from January 29 through February 22. The Visitors’ Center is open 7 days a week for the public to view the art exhibit. The co-op is open 12-5 Thursday-Sunday for processing purchases.
I am looking forward to the reception on Saturday, February 7 from 3-5pm when I will be at the gallery to meet you and to talk about my work. I will also be sharing the gallery with accomplished fused glass artist Carol Scheydt, which will provide a double treat for a single visit to the gallery.
Not all artists submit their work to juried exhibits. The reality is that most of us have a very low “hit rate” and we frequently submit to shows and never have our work selected by the juror. But when it happens, it is is a form of validation of the work as well as a strong motivator.
The images in this exhibit were all accepted by jurors in various juried exhibits, including the Center for Fine Art Photography in Fort Collins, Colorado, the Washington County Museum of Fine Arts in Hagerstown, Maryland, The Delaplaine Arts Education Center in Frederick, Maryland, and others. These images are among my most successful work since I began showing my photography in 2006.
Below is a sampling of the images that are in the exhibit. Photographs viewed online are nice but I have always felt that ultimately, photography is about the print. The exhibit offers 24 large exhibit prints, some of which are the actual prints that were displayed in the juried exhibits. Naturally, the prints are available for purchase
