I am thrilled to report I’ve been selected as 2017 Artist in Residence at Bernheim Arboretum and Research Forest, in Clermont, Kentucky. The forest consists of 14,378 acres of old logged hillsides approaching “old growth” status, and watersheds that run clean. I am looking forward to working there to expand my abstract nature imagery in a new ecosystem.
Bernheim was founded in 1929 as a place for people to find peace, understanding, and common interest in nature. It is one of the largest forest blocks in the Eastern United States managed by a nonprofit organization whose mission includes conservation and education. The clean air and water, wildlife habitat, and biological diversity that Bernheim provides and protects make this land truly significant and precious.
The specific goal of the organization, which coincides with my own work, is to inspire the exploration of our deep connections with nature.
I will attend Photolucida in Portland in April, showing my Strangeness of Seeing series. I continue to rework the book form and will have a new handmade book prototype to show there. I will explore options to put this artwork out in the world.
PHOTO Fine Art Photography, the gallery I directed, closed the Oakland location at the end of 2015, after five great years.
