My Artwork Made It Back Home

My piece from the exhibition "Night" at the Center for Fine Art Photography just made the trip back home. Here are my boys trying to figure out this large package:




Unpacking. Here's the piece wrapped in foam core from inside the big box.


Framed piece wrapped in paper inside the foam core box.


Artwork from inside the 2 boxes.

It made the trip just fine with no issues. The piece is still wrapped up because it's heading to Concordia University's Photo Biennial later this week. So stop by that opening if you'd like to see it.

Here are a few installation photos from "Night" at the Center for Fine Art Photography in Fort Collins. Follow that link for some photos, and there are more links at the bottom of that page with more photos from that exhibition if you're interested.

Using a Nikon as a Chair

People have been talking about this image for the last few days:



People assume he's dumb for (1) using such an expensive lens as a chair, and (2) shooting with his cell phone while having a dSLR with a nice lens on it at his disposal. Well, I kinda feel the same as the rest of the world about #1, but regarding issue #2, he only has a long lens on that camera. If he needs to shoot something a bit wider, he'd need a different camera or lens. So maybe he's snapping a candid photo of a friend (or something) with his "normal" cell phone. There have been plenty of times I've had my dSLR around my neck and shot something with my phone instead. So cut him some slack.

But... as a Canon user... I'm TEMPTED to make the joke "Finally, someone using a Nikon the proper way!"

A Few More Photos of 'Night'

The "Night" exhibition at the Center for Fine Art Photography just came down, and Sunshine Divis (a Programs Manager at the CFAP) sent out a few photographs of the exhibition. Here are a few from her:

Work Up at the Anderson Center

I posted last month about an exhibition I was asked to be a part of in Red Wing at the Anderson Center. My boys and I went down to the event last Saturday. Here are a few photos:


Some legitimate art in their permanent collection.




A Warhol "Mao" in the corner.


Upstairs there was art all throughout the hallways.


"The Barn" is quite the structure, and is beautiful inside.


More art in the cafeteria.


My work in the main gallery.

My boys running through the gallery.


My 5-year-old wanted his photo taken by one of my pieces. So I'll end this post with that. :)

'Night' at the Center for Fine Art Photography

The opening reception for "Night" at the Center for Fine Art Photography in Fort Collins was Friday night. On Saturday, I stopped back for a portfolio review with the gallery director. After that, I snapped a few photos of the exhibition:

'Night' Opening Reception at the Center for Fine Art Photography in Colorado

Last night, my wife and I enjoyed the opening reception for "Night" at the Center for Fine Art Photography in Fort Collins, Colorado. Here are a few photos from the opening:


Gallery director Hamidah Glasgow introducing a few of the photographers.


Me giving a quick talk about my work.


People chatting.


In the other gallery (filled with a nice portfolio show) looking into the main gallery.


A bookcase in the lobby had an enviable collection of photo books.
(As well as some old-school "decorations" on the top.)




The FIRST thing I had to check on when I got to the gallery was to make sure that
my 32" x 41" homemade frame survived the trip. It still had nice and tight joints. Sweet.


My wife's dweeby photo of me and my piece.


A photo that I Instagrammed of my wife and I at the opening.


We had a great/long chat with Brandie (photographer with red hair) and her husband
at the reception. And then Hamdiah (the gallery director) joined us. Lots of laughs.

I had some nice conversations about my work with about a half dozen people - 1 older man taught at Iowa State for years (so we talked about Garrison Keillor and midwest winters), and one couple where the husband worked for Ilford his entire life. Very friendly people and great conversations!

Check back in a few days: I'll have some more photos of the exhibition itself that I made this morning after I had a portfolio review with Hamidah.
