Well, it has been awhile since I have written a blog. When I first started this web page and blog, in the back of my mind I wanted to do at least one a week. Well, so far that has not happened and each week keeps passing by faster and faster.
Anyways, it has also been awhile since I entered any of my images into any local exhibits. This month I entered different images into two different shows, the first being the Lawrence Street Gallery (LSG) Exposures 2015 and the other being the Three Cities Art Club 2015 Exhibit. Both are juried exhibits. The LSG was juried by Monte Nagler and the Three Cities Art Club was juried by Edee Joppich.
I found our earlier this week that both my images submitted to the LSG exhibit were accepted to the show. Although I did not win anything, it is still exciting to get images accepted and I can’t wait to see them hanging in the gallery. The opening reception is tonight from 6 to 9 PM. More information on the show and the gallery's hours can be found on their website at http://www.lawrencestreetgallery.com .
The first image I submitted was a monochrome print taken along the back roads of Amish Country in Holmes County in Ohio. This received a score of 25 out of 27 at the Livonia Camera Club's November 2014 Print Competition.
The second image I submitted was a color print also taken along the back roads of Amish Country in Holmes County in Ohio. This received a score of 27 out of 27 at the Livonia Camera Club's November 2014 Print Competition. It was also taken to Greater Detroit Camera Club Council’s (GDCCC) March print competition where it received a score of 22 out of 27, which was not high enough to place.
If you are looking for something to do and are out in the Ferndale area, I encourage you to stop by the Lawrence Street Gallery to check out my images along with the rest of the images of the Exposures 2015 exhibit. Although I have posted them here, printed images have more impact in person when they are matted and framed. Plus you get to see my wonderful matting skills. These two images were the first two images I cut mats for with my recently acquired mat board cutter.
As soon as I find out about my images to the Three Cities Art Club exhibit, I will let everyone know. Stay tuned...
