I think a common affliction among artists is a tendency to ignore shameless self-promotion in favor of, well, in favor of just about anything else. It’s certainly an ailment I can’t seem to shake. So rather than announce the current events I am part of in a timely manner as they came up, I’ve procrastinated until several of them have piled up. So here in one dump is what I have been, am, and will be involved in exhibit-wise.
Social Media #1 (triptych)
In September some of my photographs were in two group exhibits in China, at the Jiuquan Museum in Jiuquan and also in Tsing Tao. I’ve been invited back to China in December where my work will again be part of two exhibitions, one at the American Embassy in Beijing and the other at the 188 Contemporary Art Center in Shanghai. My continual thanks to the 188Art Warehouse for their interest in my work.
Two of my grain elevator photographs are currently part of an exhibition juried by Wyatt McSpadden titled High Plains Highways at the Amarillo Museum of Art in Amarillo, Texas. This exhibit is in conjunction with an adjoining exhibition called The Open Road featuring the photographs of such famous names as Robert Frank, Garry Winogrand, William Eggleston, Lee Friedlander, Todd hido and others. It’s a privilege to be in such good company! The exhibits run through January 15, 2017.
During March and April of 2017 I will have a solo exhibition at the Maturango Museum in Ridgecrest, CA. The exhibition features the composite work I’ve been doing the last few years and is titled Synthesizing Icons: Composite Photographs from the Animal World.
There is an ongoing display of my work at The Element here in Bozeman. It will be hanging there through the end of the year. Also this month, my work is for sale at the holiday sales event at the Holter Museum in Helena, MT. This Saturday only, I will at the Emerson Center for the Arts and Culture here in Bozeman for their holiday event.

Congratulations on all these exhibition opportunities, especially the ones in China! I expect to be in Bozeman the first weekend in Dec. I hope to be able to see your work while I’m there. Are the composites available on your web site as a separate gallery?
Thanks Kathy. There is a gallery of composite images on my website here. But unfortunately it is woefully out of date–I need to fix that! If you’ve time when you’re in Bozeman, give me a call and we can get coffee or something. I imagine I’ll be around.
Thanks Larry. Let me know when you update the composites gallery. I already checked it out and missed the “Roost” composite you show above. I should have a better idea of my schedule while in Bozeman in a couple days. Would be great to connect in person! 🙂
And to think I once reckoned, back in our time together in Tucson, that you’d likely grow up to be little more than an adobe brick maker. You should be proud of what you’ve accomplished. Janis and I love your work.
PS. Hope Stacia and Makai left well fed. Looks like they left Standing Rock just ahead of rubber bullets and water cannons. I worry that when Jeff Sessions becomes attorney general the bullets won’t be rubber and the cannons won’t be shooting water.
Thanks Doug, although I have to say there’s nothing wrong with being an adobe brick maker! We sent the California kids on their way after feeding them enough yogurt and granola to at least get them to the nearest McDonald’s.
