2019 Pop-up Art show

I’m so thrilled and excited to be part of the 2019 Themed Entertainment Pop-Up Art Show at ArtShare LA! The show is a charity event for Arts For LA, sponsored by ArtShare LA, and Mycotoo. Alexis Cruz and Fri Forjindam Bailey are hosting the event, which features 14 artists, including moi!

The exhibit opened September 12 at ArtShare L.A., 801 East 4th Place, Los Angeles, CA 90013. The gallery is open from 1pm-6pm Wednesday through Sunday, but the big event is Saturday, September 21st from 5-10PM. The “gala” is a charity event with an admission fee ($10). Street parking is limited, but there is a lot across the street with $10 parking.

The images I have submitted for this exhibit are collected as “Shifting Sands of Time,” and were taken at Oceano Dunes on the Central California Coast. These dunes were made famous by Edward Weston and Ansel Adams, whose stirring black-and-white images of the dunes are a part of photographic history. For this exhibit, I wanted to instead emphasize the intense, shifting colors of the dunes. After nearly 100 years of black-and-white dunes photos, I figured it was time to show the dunes the way we see them: Full of hallucinatory colors, and deep, complex shadows, all reflecting a magical palette provided by the sun, the sky, and the nearby ocean.

Hard Six: Through the Lens

I was happy and fortunate to be selected as part of the exhibit Hard Six: Thru the Lens, at Megasound Studios in Ventura, CA. The exhibit, which includes photos about the local band, Hard Six, opened Saturday, January 28, and continues through March 28, 2017. There was a great opening night party, featuring Hard Six and many friends from other bands. I was very pleased with how great the Xpozer image mounting system from Bay Photo Lab’s  worked. The images really popped, and stood out (literally!) from the others.
