Ripening Cherry Tomatoes

A few weeks ago, I made a fun pic while harvesting cherry tomatoes from our small urban garden:

OH+OG Exhibition

Saturday night was the "OH+OG" pop-up opening event. I got to chat with a few old friends and make a few new ones. I had 4 pieces in the show, but only remembered to photograph 3 of them:


Two of my "4 a.m." pieces.


Another "4 a.m." piece.


People at the opening.


More people.


The catalog. My piece I didn't photograph is on the upper-left of the cover.


My page inside. Dweeby.


A "thank you" post by someone who helped with the show. Thanks Joel!

Upcoming Pop-Up Show

I have 4 pieces in a curated pop-up show in Northeast Minneapolis on Saturday afternoon. Here's a photo posted on the event page earlier today of some work arriving:



I just dropped my pieces off, and there's a lot more now!

The show is at 1421 NE 27th Ave, Minneapolis, MN 55418-3032. It runs on Saturday Sept 29th from 3-6 pm. I won't be there the entire time, but I hope to be there around the middle of it. Stop by and check it out!

Ansel Adams Selfie

Someone in a large format photography Facebook group posted this recently with the caption "Uncle Adams, if he was living now...?"

New Classroom

One of my photography courses this fall has moved from our "regular" digital photo lab (seen in this post) to the lab in the basement of Bush Library. So I'm moving from one basement lab to another basement lab. But this one is pretty nice for a basement:


Pods #1-3 (the "pods" are workstations of 4 computers along with a big screen for me to teach on).


Pods #4-5 along with the instructor station.

Kicking off the semester in just a few days!

Photos from the CVA Reunion

This past weekend, CVA Action organized an all-school reunion for those associated with the College of Visual Arts in Saint Paul. Studio on Fire (a printmaking studio owned by a CVA alumni) hosted the event. Here are a few pics from Bill Kelley and Caroline Houdek Solomon, with the first 3 from Ken Friberg (all 3 are CVA photo grads):


Everyone who was there at 8 pm. I'm the 10th from the right. Click here for a larger version.


Ken's photo during the presentation.


Ken's photo of the current board members (many of whom I worked with when
I was co-president a few years back), along with Ben L from Studio on Fire.


Next a handful of pics from Caroline.


A wall with some memories.


A LOT of CVA paraphernalia for people to take.




A different angle of the last shot, mainly to show Studio on Fire's IMPRESSIVE beer can collection.


If you claim to be affiliated with CVA but do not have one of these mugs, then you are not truly affiliated with CVA.


Lots of mingling.




Sarah F and Kristi B - I didn't see them to get to say hi!


Lots of familiar faces in this shot.


Nancy D (secretary), Maria S (printmaking), and Lynn T (admissions).


And here are a few pics from Bill. This is Kolean P talking with Ben L behind her, Neal R, Caroline HS, and Sarah L.


Chatting with a group that graduated just before I did.


Carly S, Shannon B, me, Lisa D, Anne M, and someone who's name I forgot.




Ben L and Cory L comparing hipsterness. (I mean that lovingly.)


Lynn T and Keri H.


Sherry E and Nancy D. Sherry was the one who gave me a tour back in 1998/99.


Marian B and Jess (Rudy A's wife).


A food truck parked outside.


Marian and lots of current or former board members: Diane, Nyla, Diane, and Kolean.


Deb and Monica from around my time at CVA.


Val J (chair of fine arts), Seth W (with an awesome shirt of his design), and Kate J.


And finally, here are a few of my pics. This is during the presentation (Sarah L is speaking).


Selfie after talking with former students Liz F, Abby H, Garret (not a former student), and Sarah L.


Photographer selfie! CVA photo grads (and 2 of my former bosses in the photo lab) Caroline HS and Bill K!


From Lynn: a fun photo after talking with Syril M and Lynn for a bit.


Letterpress versions (made by Studio on Fire) of an old CVA poster, and a "Save CVA" card from 5 years ago.


Some promo cards from when I *started* at CVA, featuring many
people I knew during my time there. Click here for a larger version.

I saw so many faces that I'd forgotten about, and it was 90% happy with 10% sadness. Thanks for organizing CVA Action! And thanks for hosting Studio on Fire!

CVA Action posted a lot of photos from a slideshow from throughout CVA's history, and I want to post a bunch of those shortly. So check back. Or just check out the album on CVA Action's Facebook page.
