In May, I spent 2 weeks traveling in Italy, Switzerland and Germany. I assisted a workshop in Tuscany taught by Peter Vanderwarker for the first week and then spent the next week with a friend in Lucerne and Munich. Each place was magnificent and I was able to photograph, relax, and experience different cultures, it was just what I needed. I am now back in Boston (with 20+ rolls of film to develop!) and am excited for June and all of the photo happenings!
Here is a list of a few events that I will be a part of:
June 3, 2014 7:30-8:30pm
I was introduced to AS220 by a dear friend and fellow artist, Lindsey Beal. It is an artist-run organization that provides studio and exhibition spaces, workshops, artist housing and much, much more. I am really looking forward to giving a talk about my photography at their next open house on Tuesday June 3 and getting to know this terrific artist community.
June 13, 2014 5:30-7:30pm
Five photographs from my new series Wire Sketches, will be in the group exhibition Abstract (Photo) Expressionists at Panopticon Gallery. Other artists include: Keith Johnson, Alexander Harding, Jerry Reed, Paul Wainwright, Andrea Stone, Suzette Bross, Louis Henri Pingitore, Ioanna Tourkantonis.
June 22, 2014 3-4:30pm
Who doesn't love toy cameras?! While most people are out shooting with digital cameras, I really enjoy running around with my Holga, snapping away and cranking the film through the plastic camera. I usually get people staring at me and sometimes they ask me what it is, which is always a fun conversation to have (especially if the person asking is holding a fancy Nikon or Cannon digital camera). Needless to say I am thrilled to be on a panel with Bill Franson, James Rohan, and Meg Birnbaum to talk about the awesomeness of toy cameras. This event is a part of The Somerville Toy Camera Festival which has many openings and events in June that I highly recommend.
I hope you can join me for one or two or even all three of these events!
