Appalachian State

On Display: Appalachian Alumni Art Exhibition

Originally uploaded by Turchin Center for the Visual Arts

I currently have two photographs on display as part of a gallery exhibition. The gallery just sent out some photos of the entire exhibit and I found a couple which show off my photos. Here you can see my photograph 'Vintage photography.'

The exhibition it the Appalachian Alumni in the Arts Exhibition at the Turchin Center for the Visual Arts in Boone, NC.

My other photograph 'Lighting Sound' is hanging right above this photograph you can just see the bottom edge of that photograph in the upper right corner of this picture.

I think it is pretty cool that I have my photos on display. Also, if anyone is interested in purchasing these prints, they are both for sale for $112 each. 40% of the purchase price goes to support the Turchin Center.

Appalachian Alumni in the Arts Exhibition (Submissions)

'Vintage Photography'


"Lighting Sound'

Just before Christmas I received an email calling for Appalachian State University alumni who are currently work in the visual arts, to submit entries for an Alumni art exhibition at the Turchin Center for the Visual Arts which is a gallery run by the University.  The images above are my 3 entries.  At least one will be selected for the exhibition.  The Selected images will be displayed as 10x15in. framed prints on metallic photographic paper.

These three images represent a departure from the wedding and portrait photography that I have been doing lately, but are all images that I created as personal art projects.  'Vintage Photography' and 'Lighting Sound' were both created as I was working on a 365Project that I started last year.  While I made some great pictures, my project only lasted 100Days, I may restart or revive the project one of these days.  'Discovery' is a shot of the Space Shuttle Discovery making a night time launch from Cape Canaveral, FL.  I have had a fascination with space launches since my family moved to FL in 1997.  I try to go out to every night launch to try to make long exposure images.  Some more of which you can see if you explore through some of my old blog postings.

Anyways, I would love to get some feed back on what you think of these images, just add your comments below.
