I apologize for not keeping up with our blog – inbetween life, the universe & everything…. something had to give & I guess this was it. Of course, I keep up with my facebook postings – but putting thoughts down on “paper” just doesn’t get the attention it deserves. I did want to post another nod of excellence that was awarded to me (can I say “us”? I feel if it weren’t for the encouragement of my family, friends & clients – I wouldn’t be getting the nods I have been).
So – back in the beginning of January, I was notified that my photograph, “Horizon” was selected as one of the winners in the Collectors Showcase at the Workhouse Art Center in Lorton, VA. This is really an honor… it was juried into the “best of the best” by Joy Chambers. She is an award winning jazz photographer & a noted lawyer, http://www.joychamberslaw.com/. My image will be included in the 2012 collectors calendar as “March.” My piece & the other original pieces of art were donated by the Workhouse artists will be on display in Gallery W-16, first floor from February 2-19. To find out more about this exhibit and the upcoming Collectors Showcase gala on Feb. 19, visit: http://bit.ly/hzaM4x. I will also have several new pieces that will be a part of the exhibition, the “Best of the Collector’s Showcase,” February 23-April 3. http://bit.ly/glZoWB. This show is an extension of the 2011 Collector’s Showcase. The exhibition will present art from the top 13 artists chosen at the 2011 Collector’s Showcase. Look for the exhibition on the first floor of the Gallery W-16. There will be an opening reception in Gallery W-16 on March 12th from 6-9pm in conjunction with the Workhouse’s 2nd Saturday Art Walk.
And finally… I am honored to be exhibiting my photography at the Hylton Performing Arts Center in Manassas, VA. I will be sharing the spotlight as one of three local photographers that will be showing our work in the Buchanan Partners Art Gallery. The show will be taking place from March 1 to April 3, 2011.
