I have a couple exciting items to share with you this week.
First, I will be a part of a great three-person show titled Hot Topic: A Photographic Response to Climate Change. The exhibition, curated by Dan Shepherd, includes DM Witman and Daniel Kukla, along with myself and will open this Saturday, September 10th at GALLERY 1/1 in Seattle, WA. The gallery address is 2856 NW Market Street #2G, Seattle WA 98107 and the opening will take place between 6-9pm. If you would like more information about the exhibit and Gallery 1/1 click here.
The other good news, I was accepted into the prestigious Review Santa Fe Photo Festival at CENTER. CENTER is a non-profit organization in Santa Fe, New Mexico that was founded in 1994 to support, honor and provide opportunities to gifted and committed photographers (like myself). The Review Santa Fe Photo Festival invites only 100 photographers to meet with leading industry professional for portfolio viewings. This event will not happen until November of this year but CENTER has already begun promoting their chosen photographers and my page can be found by following this link.
Thank you for all your support.

Happy Fourth of July friends,
I would like to take a moment during this holiday to share a few exciting updates with you.
First, I would like to remind you that the Woven exhibition is still on view at the Sturt Haaga Gallery at Descanso Gardens in La Cañada Flintridge. Curator John David O’Brien assembled an excellent group of artists and put together a great show that I am very proud to be a part of. The gardens are located at 1418 Descanso Drive, La Cañada Flintridge, CA 91011 and the gallery admission is free with regular Garden Admission (parking is free) from 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM daily except Mondays when the Sturt Haaga Gallery is closed. The show will be up until the end of August.
Second, I have donated a piece for the PØST Los Angeles silent auction and party. For those unfamiliar with PØST, it is an experimental artist-run venue that has supported the Los Angeles art community twenty-one years. The amount of participating artist is too lengthy to list here but it is a who’s-who of Los Angeles based artists and I am excited to have been invited to partake. By following this link, you can bid on my work from now until Saturday, July 9th at 8pm. Also, if you’re in the LA area join us for the party at 1206 Maple Avenue #515, LA, CA 90015 from 6:30 to 8:30pm.
If that wasn’t enough, the Alan Klotz Gallery has three new pieces of mine listed in the New Acquisitions section of his website. You can see my work surrounded by such luminaries as Minor White, John Florea, Alida Fish and 2015 Aaron Siskind IPF Grant recipient, Amy Finkelstein.
Finally, there is one last Time Interwoven book for sale. Once it’s gone, they’re all gone and the edition will be closed. If you would like to purchase the last copy and/or my other book New Landscapes, I encourage you to check out my web store. Each book costs $20 and are signed and numbered
Thanks again for supporting me.

It’s been a little over a month since updated you.
April was very good to me. First, my accountant got me a sweet tax refund, which allowed me to traveled to New York to attend the AIPAD fair. The fair was great because my work got a lot of attention from interested collectors, I made a lot of new connections and had a great time catching up with old friends and making new ones. There are other exciting opportunities for my work that came from this trip but I will share the details later once everything has been solidified.
For friends in the Southern California region, I would like to invite you to see the new exhibition title Woven at the Sturt Haaga Gallery at Descanso Gardens in La Cañada Flintridge. The exhibit will be open to the public starting Tuesday, May 17 and will run through Sunday, August 28, 2016. I am in great company with this list of artists: Marsia Alexander-Clarke, Melanie Ciccone, Clifford Eberly, Susan Feldman, Agustin Garza, Jenny Hart, Nicholette Kominos, Dinh Q. Le, Kristin Leachman, Jairlyn Mason, Thinh Nguyen, Echiko Ohira, James Richards, Meriel Stern, Joan Weinzettle, Pontus Willfors. John David O’Brien curated the exhibit and here are a few words from him about the show, “Like weaving itself, the premise of this exhibition is both simple and satisfyingly complex. When the purpose of weaving transcends utility and enters art, we see in full the many meanings and association to be found in the act of weaving, and in things woven.” The gallery admission is free with regular Garden Admission (parking is free) from 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM daily except Mondays when the Sturt Haaga Gallery is closed.
In case you got a sweet tax refund too, I would like to tell you about my most recent limited edition photo book titled New Landscapes. The book was initially published for AIPAD and contains the images that where shown in the Klotz Gallery booth plus a few more. If you would like to purchase a copy of this or my other book Time Interwoven, I encourage you to check out my web store. Each book costs $20 and are signed and numbered.
Thanks again for supporting me.

My limited edition photo book Time Interwoven has been selling well. I encourage you to pick one up at my web store for $20 before they’re all gone. Each book is signed and numbered.

It’s a new year and I have been very busy since the last email update in December.
First, I want to invite you all to attend the Classic Photographs Los Angeles fair during the weekend of January 30 and 31st. The Alan Klotz Gallery will be exhibiting a few of my prints and they will have a stack of my new books!
New books? That’s right! I recently published my first book of photographs. They will be available to purchase for $20 from my new web store or from the Alan Klotz Gallery booth at Classic Photographs Los Angeles.
But that’s not the only book project I am a part of. A brief essay of mine will be published in the International Photography Annual 3.

If that wasn’t enough, I am the special guest in the first episode of “Real Art…Real Talk”, a YouTube program that focuses on thoughtful dialog about contemporary visual art. I can be seen reviewing the Mark Jenkins exhibition at the Fabien Castanier Gallery in Los Angeles by click this link here.
Thank you for supporting me and I hope you all have a great new year.

I don't believe in perfection. When I hear the word I am suspicious of hubris. Instead I am interested in the beauty of imperfection.
