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.
Just dropped off three pieces at the Battle Creek Art Center for the Signature Artists group show "Beyond Boundaries."
The show will run from June 4-24 at the Art Center of Battle Creek, 265 E Emmett St, Battle Creek, MI 49017. Artists' Reception will this Sunday, June 4, from 2-4PM.
I interpreted "boundaries" as the technical things that you do to make photographs - aperture, shutter speed, etc. - so to get beyond them I broke out the Holgas which don't let you do much with settings. And then I tried to take photos that included boundaries - like the a ditch or the fog lines on a highway. Shot in March / early April.
Here are the three pieces I entered for the show, plus the post card / annoucement:
Preparations for the 2016 Signature Gallery are underway! The gallery will open Saturday, November 26 with the Artist Reception on Sunday, November 26 from noon to 5 PM. We are at the same great location as last year - 4602 West Main Street, Kalamazoo, MI 49006.
This year I will be fully participating in the gallery and will have a large selection of framed prints, matted prints and note cards.

A few copies of the simplified Chinese Edition of The Story of Snow arrived at my house a few days ago - here's what it looks like:
The Story of Snow was originally published over 6 years ago (October, 2009) - so it's great to see continued developments even now. It of course remains in print in English and available at places like Amazon.
