January Gallery Exhibits

The month of January, out of a field of 150 entrants, I had three of my photos chosen for the Yakima Light Project and recieved the Larson Gallery Guild Award for my photo "Light of Day - Shadows." In October, while showing my work in Ellensburg at Wineworks, I drove to Yakima on a quest for worthy light filled photos in preparation for entering this competiton, so I am thrilled that my extra effort for this photo shoot turned out so well.

The jurors stated "we looked at each image to determine the relative expression of "light", the technical quality, the artistic quality, and if it was successful in communicating what the Light Project wanted to represent about Yakima. . Also googling my name will show links to news articles about the Yakima project and other newsworthy events in showing my art.

"Light of Day Shadows", "Light of Day -Fred Redmond Bridge", and "Reflected Architecture - Albers Mill" in Tacoma, WA are on display the month of January in the Peggy Lewis Gallery, Yakima, WA.

As we head into February, "God's Eternal Flame" was juried into the La Familia Gallery show titled, "Re-inventing the Wheel." and will be in Seattle's artwalk on Thursday, Feb. 4th This piece will be on exhibit the month of February at La Familia Gallery.

In December I also culminated my year long residency as curator of Tacoma Art Place. I curated 13 shows with numerous Pacific Northwest artists and, in June, was proud to curate TAP Gallery in Tacoma's Metal Urge extravaganza. I finished my residency with a show of my newest pieces and shared the gallery with an up and coming fused glass artist, Mark Lubich.

Our show was a resounding success, and Mark and I are already planning further artistic collaborations in 2010.
