I am a contemporary, conceptual photographer living in Napa, California, one of those amazingly lucky people who discovered their heart’s desire at the age of five, when I received a Kodak Brownie camera for my birthday. Seeing the world through the lens of the camera suddenly made it all make sense.
My photographs are printed on dye-infused aluminum, canvas or Hahnemuhle fine art paper, in limited editions.
Two of my photographs were accepted into the de Young Museum Open Exhibit! Details below
In celebration of the de Young museum’s 125th anniversary, the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco are hosting The de Young Open, a juried community art exhibition of submissions by artists who live in the nine Bay Area counties: Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Solano, and Sonoma. The de Young Open continues the museum’s long-standing tradition of engaging the local community and showcasing the talent of Bay Area artists, who will be able to offer their pieces for sale and retain 100 percent of the proceeds.
We are enormously excited to include your work in this “salon-style” exhibition, which will be installed edge-to-edge and floor-to-ceiling. While this installation style precludes the ideal placement of every individual work, it will enable us to display the maximum number of Bay Area artworks and underscores our desire to promote the local artist community. Less than 8 percent of submissions made it into the final exhibition—more than 11,000 were submitted, and fewer than 900 made it to the final—so congratulations are indeed in order.
