Photograph Chosen for International Exhibit

This summer, the 12 12 Gallery in Richmond, Virginia will display a recent work of mine in their exhibit, the International Juried Works on Paper. The photograph, Who’ll put flowers on a flower’s grave?, 2010, was made at a catholic cemetery in New Iberia, Louisiana and depicts an empty vault containing discarded flowers. The photograph’s title was inspired from the lyrics of a Tom Waits song entitled: Flower’s Grave.

Currently, the photograph is on exhibit at the Buddy Holly Center Fine Arts Gallery in Lubbock, Texas in the juried exhibit Illuminance, on display now through June 12.

Works on Paper was juried by Dan Welden, a master printmaker, painter, teacher, and author. He is the inventor of the Solarplate method of printmaking and co-author, with Pauline Muir, of Printmaking in the Sun.

The International Juried Works on Paper can be viewed from June 24 through August 19 at the 12 12 Gallery (804-233-9957), located at Zero E. 4th Street #39, in Richmond, Virginia. The gallery is open Thursday-Friday, 12:pm-4pm, Saturday, 11am-6pm, Sunday, 12 pm-5pm, and by appointment. Opening, artists’ reception, and juror gallery talk will be Friday, June 24.
