We Are All Related

Ligget Studios, Tulsa, OK

February 4th – March 7th

this last winter I did some collaborative work with Tarleton State University English professor William “Hank” Jones.  He was invited to participate in an exhibition at Liggett Studios in Tulsa, OK called We Are All Related from February 14th to March 7th. Hank sent me some of his poetry and I made some images to go with it using some older work and some ideas I had kicking around using old Boy Scout manuals.

Pam Watson, Tami Smith, Mary Whitney, Gabriel Rojas, Fran & Sam, Kitra Smith, Ann Weisman, Nita Pahdopony, Hank Jones & Chris Ireland, Ken Hada & Sarah A. Hada

Trust The Story

The Baldwin Photographic Gallery, Middle Tennessee State University

February 6 — March 12, 2020, Murfreesboro, TN

Juror: Melanie McWhorter

Guided by submissions, the exhibition’s narrative will foster a dialogue among the images and create a larger story of the human experience. Small vignettes of demise, hope, action, visualization, etc. will drive a broader human experience for the present and the future. This is not a show of truth-telling, but storytelling.

My work from the Ordinary Time series is included along with the following artists

Michael Amato, Laura J. Bennett, Carl Bower, Barbara Ciurej and Lindsay Lochman, Elizabeth Claffey, Roxanne Darling, Virgil Dibiase, Sharon Draghi, Daniel Farnum, Jo Fields, Cristina Fontsaré, Jennifer Georgescu, Bryan D. Griffith, Pato Hebert, Abbey Hepner, Jennifer Steensma Hoag, Chris Ireland, Emily Matyas, Calli McCaw, Chris Nail, Lake Newton, Natalie Obermaier, Christine Osinksi, Daniel Peebles, Benjamin Rusnak, Lynn Silverman, John Slepian, Jason Tannen, Terri Warpinski, and Sandra Chen Weinstein

Now and Then

An MFA Invitational
Gallery 2, Washington State University

Very, very happy and pleasantly surprised to have been invited by the current Washington State MFA grads to participate in the alumni exhibition “Now and Then”, which opened yesterday and is on display at Gallery 2 until Feb. 17. I miss the Palouse greatly.

Inherited Moments

College of the Mainland Gallery, Texas City

The exhibition Inherited Moments traveled from San Antonio to the Houston area this month.  Inherited Moments, which was on display in San Antonio last month, will be on display at the College of the Mainland Gallery until October 30th.  More info here.  

“Inherited Moments” includes images from my series “Ordinary Time” and H. Jennings Sheffield’s on-going body of work “Tethered.” Combining these works we mean to utilize familial imagery to convey both the intimacy and diverse roles and relationships individuals play within a family unit. These roles can create contrasting moments ranging from the mundane to chaotic.

 

This month I was in an exhibition with my friend and collaborator H. Jennings Sheffield at Terminal 136 Gallery in San Antonio.  The exhibition “Inherited Moments, which was on display in Fort Worth last winter, will be on display in San Antonio through September 21st and then will travel to Houston.  Check out this write up in the San Antonio Current.

My work Holding Still for Mother was selected by curator Linda Robinson to be included in the online exhibition and catalog entitled TEN YEARS OF PHOTOGRAPHS by the Midwest Center for Photography. Here is an excerpt from the curator:

“The calendar year of 2018 marks the 10 year anniversary of the Midwest Center for Photography. In 2008, I made the decision to expand my educational reach from the University to the gallery setting through the curatorial vision of founding and directing the Midwest Center for Photography in Wichita, Kansas.

By uniting these 100 featured photographers and various photographic works that I have identified as outstanding and noteworthy throughout the 10 years of exhibitions at the Midwest Center for Photography, I wish to share this collective vision with the larger online audience in this Ten Years of Photographs Online Exhibition. A retrospective exhibition catalogue is produced and available in January, highlighting the distinct curatiorial voice that captures a new collective aesthetic that is uniquely my Midwestern take on America.”

The Instagrammar opening was a success!  While I was at the opening I met a writer for the Dallas Morning News who decided to do a write up of our show.  Here is the link below: https://www.dallasnews.com/arts/visual-arts/2018/11/15/instagrammar-500x-gallery-invites-us-socialize-photos-art-minus-screens
