Three of the photographs I submitted to the Carnegie Center for the Arts 2018 Regional Juried Arts Competition have been accepted by the jurors and will be featured in this year's exhibit. The selected photographs are shown below, all part of the Botanical Studies series.
Based out of Three Rivers, Michigan, the Carnegie Center sponsors this competition for artists living in Southwest Michigan and Northern Indiana. It’s open to works in all media. As an annual event with several years of history, this show always brings out excellent work from the area. This year's show opened on January 21 and will close on February 17, 2018.
The three pieces I submitted to the exhibit are:
The title sums it up... shot today at Asylum Lake.
A few days ago in the Allegan Forest - this location continues to intrigue me, though most of the trees (not shown) have been chopped down. I still like the pines in the snow.

The 2017 Signature Gallery opens on Friday, December 1!
This will mark Signature's 38th season gallery - it truly is a Kalamazoo tradition.
I'm participating in the gallery this year and will have a large assortment of framed prints, matted prints and photo note cards. Several of my new botanical images will be on display this year, as well as landscapes and close ups. The gallery is open through December 27th - if you are in the Kalamazoo area, stop on in.
Here are two of my photos with a fantastic Eric Joseph drinking horn:
