Hous projects Promo and Always by Design

Both receptions were very exciting for me as I have never been exhibited in two different cities with receptions on consecutive days. I'm not sure I'll ever do that again!

Always By Design Phila & Hous Projects NY

I am pleased to announce that my work is in two exhibitions simultaneously in
Philadelphia and New York. In Philadelphia, along with Georg w. Purvis III, 20 of my photographs are in "Sublime Nature", which is relatively self explanatory. Both Mr. Purvis and I celebrate in different ways, the elegance, wonder and unexpected form and textural nature of nature. In my work which is all Black and white prints, I revel in the
exactness of the forms of flowers while highlighting them using chiaroscuro, my favorite technique for lighting flowers. Mr Purvis, whose works are all
in color has a special talent for seeing the remarkable textures and hues that be found in
seemingly unexpected places. Always by Design 265 S. 10th St, Phila. Wed-Sat. Noon-6pm

In New York at Hous Projects, 31 Howard St, Soho, my work is included among approximately 20 other artists in "The Naked Truth", curated by Ruben Natal-San Miguel,the exhibition includes the artists listed below. Through July 17, Monday- Saturday Mon-Sat 10-6
