Photograph of Shangri La Selected for International Exhibit

Opening in November, Photoplace Gallery in Middlebury, Vermont will exhibit my work Adrift, 2011 in their international exhibit Again: Reflections and Photography. 
Adrift, 2011, was recently photographed at Shangri La Botanical Gardens and Nature Center in Orange, Texas.  Reminiscent of an impressionist painting and invoking a romantic mood, the surrealist and dream-like color photograph captures the reflection of cypress trees in a pond containing floating leaves.
Juror Sylvia de Swaan selected the photo from approximately 950 photographs submitted internationally to be included in the exhibit.  Born in Romania, de Swaan is a New York-based fine art photographer whose photographic work focuses on “themes that include personal history, individual and collective memory and identity, the state of the world and the neighborhood where I live. I’m interested in the construction of narrative and how meaning is created through juxtaposition and editing.”
Photoplace Gallery has posted an online gallery of Again: Reflections and Photography.
Presently, a limited edition print of Adrift, 2011, framed by international award-winning fine art framers John and Phyliss Nazworth, can be viewed and is available for purchase at Pinehurst Gallery in Orange, Texas. 
Pinehurst Gallery and Custom Picture Framing (409-882-9008) is located at 2498 Martin Luther King, Suite C, in Orange, Texas.  The gallery is open Tuesday-Friday, 10am-5pm, and Saturday, 10 am-2pm. 
Again: Reflections and Photography can be viewed from November 8 through December 3 at Photoplace Gallery (802-989-2359), located at 3 Park Street, in Middlebury, Vermont.  The gallery is open Tuesday-Friday 11am – 4pm and Saturday 10am – 2pm or by appointment.  During Thanksgiving (November 23-25), the gallery will be closed. Artists’ reception will be held on Friday, November 11 from 5pm – 6:30 pm. Website:
