Photograph Selected for International Exhibition

Later this month, A Smith Gallery in Johnson City, Texas will be the first host of the Texas Photographic Society’s 20th International Competition Exhibition.  My photograph Storm, Sandoval County, New Mexico, 2009 was selected for this exhibit by the competition’s juror, Arno Rafael Minkkinen, from approximately 1000 photographs submitted by 150 artists.
Minkkinen, Professor of Art at the University of Massachusetts – Lowell, has been published and exhibited internationally. Some of the collections in which his work resides include the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, the Addison Gallery of American Art in Andover, Massachusettes, the Centre Pompidou and Musée d’Art Moderne in Paris, the Musée de l’Élysée in Lausanne, the Center for Creative Photography in Arizona, and the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography.  He has published six monographs: Frostbite (1978), Waterline (1994, winner of the 25th Rencontres d’Arles Book Prize), Body Land (1999), SAGA: The Journey of Arno Rafael Minkkinen, 35 Years of Photographs (2005), Homework: The Finnish Photographs (2008), and Balanced Equation (2010).
The Texas Photographic Society’s 20th International Competition Exhibition can be viewed from August 26 through September 25 at A Smith Gallery (e-mail), located at 105 N Nugent Avenue, in Johnson City, Texas.  The gallery is open Fridays and Saturdays from 11am – 6pm and Sundays from 11am – 3pm.  Artists’ reception will be held on Saturday, August 27 from 4pm-7pm.
After the exhibit closes at A Smith Gallery, it will tour Texas at various other galleries and museums for one year.
