Hello everyone. I wanted to announce my participation in a gallery exhibition which is including one of my photographs.
Focus on Chicago: Photo and Digital Exhibition
33 Collective Gallery invites Chicago photographers and digital artists to submit work for our Focus on Chicago: Photo and Digital Exhibition. This juried exhibition will include traditional photographic methods as well as digital and experimental photo media. The exhibition will highlight contemporary work produced by artists working in photo and/or digital media in the Chicagoland area and its adjacent suburbs. This is an open themed exhibition. All subject matter will be considered.

This all came together very quickly and I have to thank my good friend and fellow artist Valerie Xanos, who by the way will also be exhibiting. She sent me an email two weeks ago suggesting I send a submission. Although the gallery stated all applicants must live in and around Chicago I asked if I could participate as a former Chicagoan who lived there for 29 years. They allowed me to enter and chose one of my three entries. I am excited to be participating but sadly will not be able to attend. For those of you in the area and have an urge to check it out, please do! I have only one image but there will be plenty of others to take in. There is more to see in the building the gallery is at. http://www.zbcenter.org/
Here's a pictue of me with my submission before shipping it off to the gallery.
