I will have two photos in this show - sort of "Best of 2017" at the Little Theatre Cafe. I was there yesterday and this is one eclectic and awesome show! The Little Cafe is always a cool place to hang out whether it's before or after a movie, or to listen to the awesome music they have there most nights of the week, or just to grab a bite to eat. I really appreciate the opportunity to have had a full exhibit there back in March so it is with pleasure that I participate in this show. Hope you will stop by!
I have just the gift for the bird lover on your list! A 2018 calendar full of birds. Big birds, little birds, birds flying and swimming and nesting and feeding. All images were taken by me, the biggest bird brain of 'em all! Email me or message me via Facebook if you are interested. Pre-orders only. I'll be sending it off to be printed on December 5 and you should have it by Christmas with no problem. $16.00 + tax and shipping (approximately $20.00 total depending on where I am shipping it to. I'll confirm with you.)
Here's a sneak preview.
This Autumn, let something die.
A worry, a relationship, a project that has run its course. Let go of anxiety over the future. Let go of guilt.
Let go of other people’s dreams for you. Let go of the fear that happiness or success or love or joyousness somehow isn’t for you.
Let go of feeling unwanted. Go outside, can you feel how deeply your presence is craved here?
Let go of the small and burdensome things. Gifts never opened. Keys without a lock. Broken earrings, old love letters, the ephemera on your fridge.
As David Whyte writes, “Anything or anyone that does not bring you alive is too small for you.” This Autumn, let go of all the clothes you have outgrown.
Let go of comparison.
Let go of doubt.
Let go of the feeling that you are somehow not good enough.
Because every imperfect apple that lays soft in your hands, and every ray of low Autumn sunlight that warms you through woolens will tell you a different story, a much truer story. The story that you are more, much more, than enough. That you bless this world simply by being alive.
It's been an interesting fall. Not the brilliant colors we often hope for but a more subtle palette, just as lovely, with pops of color where you least expect it. This is from 11/8 on our street. I love the light, textures and color of it. A visual metaphor for beauty and grace at the end of days.
What a nice surprise that my photo was awarded Honorable Mention in the 2017 Martha's Vineyard Photo Contest. It's pretty cool to see my image in print. Here's the link where you can see all the winners. I am in very good company!
I must be a little crazy to have images in three different shows at once! In addition to the two at Image City Photography Gallery (see the last blog post) you can see several of my black and white film images and those of my class mates and teachers at Wayne County Council for the Arts in Newark until November 11th. What a fun and diverse show. It really looks great!
I also have one image in Gallery 96 in Bushnell's Basin "Street Photography" show. That, too is a really interesting show featuring people in all sorts of activities whether they know it or not! This show runs through the 18th of November so there's still time to take the scenic ride along the canal to the gallery.
It's always an honor just to be included with such a wonderful group of photographers as are now showing at Image City Photography Gallery in the current "Backroads" show, featuring Gary and Phyllis Thompson, two of the best landscape photographers in the region and 21 people they consider friends. So it was a surprise to have my image be chosen for one of four Partners' Pick Awards.

The show is up until November 26th so I do hope you will stop and see it. The images are fantastic! Visit Image City Photography Gallery for hours and info.
We took a nice hike in Grimes Glen last week. The light was overcast and the colors not as vibrant as some years but fall is special and there are always images to be made!
Well, it's been a busy few months and I can't believe how fast the time has gone since I last updated this blog. The show at St. John Fisher was a big success and a lot f fun. Currently my classmates, teachers and I at the Flower City Arts Center are exhibiting the work we did in Intro, Intermediate and toning B&W Film classes at Wayne Arts in Newark. It's a varied and interesting show and a pleasure to be a part of. And, I am part of a really fun show at Gallery 96 called "Street Photography". Coming up I am part of a group show at Image City Photography Gallery in Rochester. The post cards are below. I hope you will stop by Image City and take the drive to Newark to see the current shows.
Take a beautiful drive to Sodus Bay on July 2 for their Independence Extravaganza! I will be exhibiting and selling my photography along with 40-50 other artists and craftspeople so I'd love to have you stop by and say hello. Plus with all the area has been through this spring it will be a much needed boost to the economy if they get a fantastic turnout. There are lots of fun events. Check it out!
