Final Photos from the "RISE" Exhibition

CVA Action shared a great album of photos from the "RISE" exhibition that was up 2 months ago at the Concordia Gallery. Here's a link to the album if you'd like to take a look. Below are 6 photos from the album (2 general photos and 4 of my piece):

Also, I just saw that CVA Action had another album from the opening reception. Here are 2 from that one:

Related: here are my 3 posts about the exhibition: photos from the opening reception, a panorama of the exhibition, and the photos I made of the entire show.

New 4 a.m. Print

Yesterday, I made a 17” x 25” print of a recent 4 a.m. photograph. A good friend had seen an image she really liked on my Instagram page and asked for a print. Here it is just after it was printed:


A rainy morning outside of Como Conservatory in front of the Casto Solano
sculpture of prairie grasses and fireflies. Hanging on the white board.


A skewed close-up photo of the sculpture.

The print turned out well, and my friend was quite happy.

Also, this brings up that I haven’t posted about my Instagram page here. I started a page devoted to my 4 a.m. photos about 8 months ago. Search for “photostenzel” to find (and follow) me:


Full of my 4 a.m. photo series. Updated often!

My Pre-Schooler's "Camera"

My 3-year-old goes to preschool, and the school sends photos to parents after every class. I recently got these 2 photos of his homemade camera:





That viewfinder is in an odd spot. Maybe it's some sort of strange rangefinder?... :)

Photos from the Opening Reception of "RISE"

Last week was the opening reception of "RISE:" a juried exhibition of College of Visual Arts graduates. I was at the opening for a while, and here are a few photos:


That's my piece in the middle. The one with no one looking at it. *sad face*









On the CVA Action Facebook page, I found this photo of the opening where you can see me, my wife, and my boys:



Also, in conjunction with this exhibition, CVA Action is hosting some fun "Pecha Kucha" artist talks next week, which will feature people associated with CVA:
