Exhibits at Athens County Library, Athens OH

I had the opportunity to have three exhibits at the local library.  The process is actually more competitive than one might think.  Athens is a artsy community and  everyone is trying to get their name out to the public.  I had no idea when I was initially asked to share my work how coveted the spaces are by artists.    Todd Bastin, Athens Art in the Library Coordinator is amazing at scheduling and organizing the arts at the library!

The first exhibit was :  In My Backyard  was a collection of photos of woodpeckers that visited my backyard.  

The second exhibit was : WaterBirds was a collection of photos taken at  wetlands in Athens, Marietta and Logan, Ohio.

The third exhibit was: The Many faces of the Red Fox was a collection of photos of a red fox that visited my backyard for several months. He began to recognize me and would stick around when I was outside.

Birds, Bees, and Everything in Between at Las Laguna Gallery, Laguna Beach CA

My first juried acceptance was at Las Laguna Gallery, Laguna Beach CA (http://www.laslagunagallery.com/2014) in the Birds, Bees, and Everything in Between Exhibit.  My photo of a cardinal was titled, Showing Red. It was framed by Lamborn's Studio and Custom Framing in Athens (https://www.facebook.com/lamborns.studio/.  The photo was framed and shipped to California.  It was at the point I realized how much effort and expense there was in showing one's work at a gallery.  

I would have never considered exhibiting my work if Matt Ziff, an architect and photographer as well as a friend and former colleague, had not convinced me to submit to call for entries.  Thank you Matt!!
