August 20, 2020 — PhotoPlace Gallery, Middlebury, Vermont

A couple of months ago I submitted some photographs to three juried exhibits in different parts of the county. I’m happy to say one of my pictures was selected to be part of the Landscape exhibit at the PhotoPlace Gallery in Middlebury, Vermont. One selection out of three tries on the first time out ain’t bad, I’m thinking.

The juror was Ann Jastrab, who is the Executive Director of the Center for Photographic Art (CPA) in Carmel, California. To have my work selected by her is quite an honor.

I’ll be entering more, including answering a call for entries at the very same CPA. Watch this space for future photographic developments…

  1. You’re right: one out of three isn’t bad. Coleridge didn’t give better odds to people of being approached by his ancient mariner who “stoppeth one of three.” It’s interesting that although the show is in Vermont, the juror comes from your neck of the woods.

    Such a beautiful image (and the frame really makes it pop–freedoms vs barriers–can’t fully appreciate one without the other).
    It’s wonderful that you are expanding your public artistic presence. The world is in need of it.
