Artist's Collective Reception http://www.jacksonarts.net/blog/2017/1/artists-collective-reception

It was a fun art exhibit reception at the Artist’s Collective Friday January 13th, 1560 4th Street San Rafael, CA. The exhibit  included one of Jill Pillot’s and my Art finds Art dresses and two of my new 3’X4’ fabric wall hangings. The Artist's Collective is an exciting new gallery in Marin and we are pleased to have been included in the second exhibit held by this gallery. Here is one of my two wall hangings that was in the show. Much better to be seen in person though! The title is “Future”.

Nutcracker Ballet Photography Exhibit http://www.jacksonarts.net/blog/2016/10/nutcracker-ballet-photography-exhibit Nutcracker Ballet Photography Exhibit

Where: Peninsula Ballet Theatre

   1880 S. Grant Street San Mateo, CA

When: November 5 through December 31 2016

Reception: Saturday November 12, from 2-4pm

Have you ever been to a dress rehearsal of the Nutcracker ballet? Well, if not, in November and December you will have the opportunity to do the next best thing!

On Saturday November 12th from 2 to 4pm you are invited to an art exhibit reception at the Peninsula Ballet Theatre 1880 S. Grant St San Mateo where Lance Huntley and I will display our photographic images of a Peninsula Ballet Theatre Nutcracker dress rehearsal. Lance has printed his images on metal where light seems to shine from within his prints and I have printed my images on free flowing fabric. A nice contrast in presentations! No charge for admission, dress is casual and wine, other beverages and light snacks will be available at no charge. There will also be an opportunity during the reception to sit in on a current Nutcracker rehearsal! Exhibited art will be for sale.

SF SantaCon 2015 http://www.jacksonarts.net/blog/2015/12/sf-santacon-2015 On Saturday December 12th 2015, I photographed  SF SantaCon.  A funfilled event, on behalf of everfest.com.

When San Francisco gave birth to SantaCon (Santarchy) in 1994, the mass of Santa-clad revelers represented a satirical jab at the commercialism of Christmas. Since then, the festival has grown into an international event, with Santas-only pub crawls taking place in 350 different cities worldwide.

On that Saturday, SantaCon took over Union Square in San Francisco to celebrate its 21st birthday with another year of holiday mayhem. All the suited up Santas at this year’s event were encouraged to bring a new toy to donate to kids in need.

More photos of this event can be found in the "SF SantaCon 2015" gallery on jacksonarts.net and at everfest.com.

First Place Award http://www.jacksonarts.net/blog/2015/11/first-place-award

I am pleased to share that one of my images won first place in Black & White magazine's 2015 international competition, Portrait category. The image, Chaos vs. Reason, along with a brief narrative will appear in Black & White's October 2016 issue. The image was shot at Carnaval, in San Francisco's Mission District in May of this year. A wonderful yearly event, lots of movement, music and color. Although I sometimes shoot the event in color, I usually choose black and white to portray subsets of this grand event.
