WHAT'S NEW IN THE GALLERIES
I am pleased to announce that I am represented by Robert Anderson Gallery in Denver, Colorado. Several of my Architextures photo collages have been included in the gallery's exhibit space continually over the past six months.
Please visit the gallery web site for a full catalog of work available through the gallery: here. Robert Anderson Gallery is located at 3321 East Colfax, Denver, CO (just east of the Bluebird Theatre). The gallery is open Wednesdays through Saturdays 12-6PM, and by appointment.
After a busy few months of participating in shows in Denver, Sacramento, Dayton, and Brooklyn, things have quieted down and I am spending some amazingly productive time working on new collages and preparing for a busy Fall exhibit season.
WHAT'S NEW IN THE STUDIO
Some very recent collages. While making these, I felt somehow transported back to childhood, a time of getting lost in cutting out tiny paper elements, and juxtaposing them in picturesque arrangements.
I like to think my cutting skills have improved since then!

WHAT'S NEW IN THE DARKROOM
I've recently created a publicly-editable Google Sheet, where people worldwide can list, donate, and receive, unused darkroom equipment. The sheet is located here.
While clearing out excess possessions some years back, I listed my first enlarger + a bunch of accessories on Craigslist Free Stuff. I was contacted shortly thereafter, and happily gifted the equipment.
A few days later, I was contacted by someone who was yearning for equipment, but I had nothing left to give her. I have never forgotten that, as I was once young and poor and longing to express myself photographically.
A March 20, 2017 Washington Post story by John Kelly about his late-in-life foray into analog photography, here, mentioned that he had been contacted by several readers who have equipment "collecting dust in the basement," which they'd like to give away. I've read too many sad tales on listserves and facebook groups, and have myself been witness, to enlarging equipment being thrown out as trash.
Nothing would make me happier than to see this never happen again - short of a worldwide renaissance of analog photography!
