Holiday Studio Sale

This holiday season give a gift that you can enjoy long after the tree has been put out on the curb– ART!  

Here are the details– I am offering a Winter Collection of  7x7 inch prints (see images of each below), as well as some prints that I found in my studio, for a very discounted price + free shipping.  

There are also three different postcard sets for those lovers of real mail.  Each set comes with eight different images from the new series It’ll Do Till A Mess Gets Here.

Of course, if you have any questions, do not hesitate to write me.  I promise to do my best to respond in a timely manner.  

  

*10% of all the Holiday sale proceeds will go to help the refugees on the Mexican/American border

**If you are curious how to frame these square prints, retailers offer 12x12 inch square frames with a mat that is perfectly fitted for these prints.




14th Julia Margaret Cameron Award: Honorable Mention

Quite unexpectedly, I received an honorable mention in the Fine Art category for the 14th edition of the Julia Margaret Cameron Award.  The award was juried by Elizabeth Avedon, Rebecca Robertson, and Analy Werbin. 

According to their website, “a total of 805 photographers from 67 countries have submitted 6,240 photographs for consideration of the pre-selection team of the Worldwide Photography Gala Awards, and the final selection of the jurors.” 

In March of 2020 in Barcelona, several images from the It’ll Do Till A Mess Gets Here series will be shown alongside the winning exhibition, a phenomenal series by Szneshana Von Buedingen.




Meandering In a Not So New Direction

It is difficult for me not to over schedule.  

The fear of missing out, the desire for community, and for deep roots will kick in and before I know it the days and weeks are overfull with good things.  Yet, I will be dreading the month before it even starts.  

To combat this tendency, this year I have sought, often unsuccessfully, to leave days empty– not allowing anything to be scheduled.  My hope is that is gives me, our family, time to experience seasonal rhythms, as well as time to really rest, something which is also not easy for me, as I have recently recognized that I slip into tying my worth to how much I can measurably do.  How does one undo that pattern other than learning to sit with an outwardly quieter pace of life?

While I meander in this not so new direction, it has led to not so new work –thoughts and feelings that I have wrestled with that are finally starting to solidify.  I am grateful to Racheal for sharing it on her blog a few weeks ago!    



Picking Satsumas in New Orleans

                                            Our friends lived next door to a satsuma tree.  

                                          That one tree brought joy on Saturday mornings. 

                                                                   Up and down the ladder, children climbed.  

                                                                                                                              Stretching.  Grasping.  Tossing.

It was an embarrassment of riches by the time they were done.

                                                                   Then on to the kumquats.

My thanks to David Carol and Ashly Stohl for including this on the Curated Fridge this spring.  



NO / JXN– Barristers Gallery in New Orleans

My heartfelt thanks to Doyle Gertjejansen for the time and effort he put into curating NO/JXN at Barrister’s Gallery in New Orleans.  

It was amazing to be included in an exhibit with some of my favorite Mississippi artists– Allan Innman, Charles Carraway, Ellen Rodgers, Twiggy, Dan Piersol, Ke Francis!  Plus, I really enjoyed showing some different work– overlapping double exposures.

RUNES at the Fischer Galleries

It is hard to believe that it has been two years since Ellen Rodgers and I had a duel exhibit at the Fischer Galleries in Jackson, Mississippi!  

A year earlier, in 2016, I had written down some five year goals/dreams–a gallery exhibit was at the top. Yet, it was something that I hardly dared to think about much.  Then I met some people, like Will JacksJamie Aelavanthera, and Rebekah Flake, who encouraged me to share work I was making.  In preparation for a portfolio review, I took photographs by to Marcy, which led, to my surprise, to Runes exhibiting in January 2017.  

I am still overwhelmed with gratitude whenever I think about that show and the people who purchased our work. My thanks to all of you!
