In September 2011 I was honored to have 3 of my photographs jury into the 33rd Annual Arts of the Terrace Art Show sponsored by the Mountlake Terrace Arts Commission and the Mountlake Terrace Friends of the Arts. Shortly after the conclusion of that show, I was invited by the Friends of the Arts to be a featured artist in 2012. Each year the Commission selects area artists to feature monthly through the year to exhibit their art in the lobby of the Mountlake Terrace Public Library. I was honored to be asked and I'm excited for the opportunity to conduct a solo show of my photography.
Honestly, when the invitation was made, June 2012 seemed like a very long time away. It's been a very busy year and I was involved in many other shows in the meantime, so June has arrived in a flash. Actually, the work I did preparing for the other shows this year really helped me get ready for this exhibit. I was able to evaluate my photography, get a number of new images printed and framed, and hone in on the way I wanted to present my photos to the public.
For this show I selected a number of landscape images capturing the beauty of the Pacific Northwest over the last year or so. I've shown several of these images before, but I included a couple new images to display for the first time. In addition to the landscape work, I've included two images from the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival and another two images of street performers working at Seattle's Pike Place Market. Together the images convey my passion for the art of photography and present the spirit of the body of my work.
