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!  

Roadside Jesus Exhibit– Louisville, Kentucky

Michael Howard writes, “this project deals with signs across America that speak of the Bible, God, Jesus, Heaven, Hell, and other American Christian themes. Not only are the messages on the signs intriguing, but their construction and the intention behind them provokes questions.”  

The South is littered with Biblical imagery.  As these roadside signs often get my mind churning, I am please that several images are included in this exhibit.

The Roadside Jesus exhibit will be up October 7th through November 28th, 2018 in Louisville, Kentucky.

Due South Co at the Cotton Museum, Memphis, TN

On the evening of Friday, September 7, 2018 the Cotton Museum will proudly host an opening reception for Four Kinds of Y’all, a group photography exhibition featuring work from members of Due South Co-op– Ryan Steed, Ellen Rodgers, David McCarty, and myself. 

Weaving together the work of four artists who concentrate and live in the American South, pastoral landscapes from rural Mississippi mingle with the urban grit of Memphis, while delicate Florida pastels feel right at home beside taxidermied bobcats.The dialogue of the artists blends together like four old friends having a conversation at midnight.

The exhibition runs September 7 – November 30, 2018, and the opening reception is free and open to the public. 

Signed and editioned artist prints will be available for sale.

SEWLK 2.0– Savannah, GA

Photograph by Ray Larose with a Pentax67

The first photowalk in Greenwood, Mississippi last year was such a success (I mean, the participants of the walk are going to be in a group show at the Museum of the Mississippi Delta during the summer of 2019) that I can’t help myself…

On October 27, 2018, the 2nd Annual Southeastern Photowalk (SEWLK) will be held in Savannah, Georgia.  I am excited that once again Richard Photo Lab is going to sponsor this walk.

The walk is open to the first 25 people to register.

And, GO!
