Earlier this year, at the Griffin Museum of Photography in Winchester, Massachussetts, juror Richard McCabe, curator of photography at the Ogden Museum in New Orleans, included "Diving Lady Motel" in the Griffin's 's 24th Annual Juried Members' Exhibition. (A Boston Globe review of the show is here: https://www.bostonglobe.com/arts/art/2018/07/19/griffin-selections-and-connections/uNEHdxEzqGxvlfMK1DYknK/story.html.)
And earlier, in Houston: Molly Glentzer, arts and culture senior writer and critic for the Houston Chronicle, included "Diving Lady Motel" in the Visual Arts Alliance's 35th Juried Open Exhibition at Houston's BLUEorange Gallery.
Elsewhere -- currently in Houston:
The Visual Arts Alliance's 36th Juried Membership Exhibition -- on view at Houston's Silver Street Studios, 2000 Edwards Street, through Saturday, December 8 -- includes two of my other "Roadside Relics" photographic prints, thanks to juror Laura Rathe, owner of Laura Rathe Fine Art. For the show, Laura chose a total of seventy-nine works in a variety of media out of 601 submissions.
Last, but not least:
If you'll be in Houston this Saturday, December 1, stop by Catherine Couturier Gallery, 2635 Colquitt Street, from 6:00 p.m.-8:00 p.m., for the opening of the gallery's annual "Deck the Walls" exhibition and book sale. A couple of my “Roadside Relics” prints are up on the walls. (I'll be among the gallery artists who'll be there, so say "hi!") Other galleries on Colquitt Street’s Gallery Row also will have openings that evening, so there'll be lots of cool artwork to check out. Deck the Walls will be up through January 12, 2019.
Next stop: New Orleans! Louisiana! (More about this later!)
