Hello all: This is a heads up for some things happening in the next few weeks in my world. I hope to see you at least at a couple of these events.
One Day Workshop
First off I am teaching a one day workshop on all things Portfolio for Still Digital Imaging in Belmont, MA. This is a class I first taught for DSI last fall and it was successful enough they wanted me to do it again. I bring in several of my own portfolios and go over different ways they are made and what they are for. After lunch we flip the class over to student portfolios. What they have, what they lack? A busy day but filled with information based upon my career long experiences. All levels of experience. Many of you are preparing now for NEPR (New England Portfolio Reviews) coming up in June and this a good way to prepare for those. For more info go to: Portfolio Workshop. Saturday, March 16 from 9am-4 pm.
Then, on the 27th I will be presenting a lecture on my work for the Photographic Resource Center (PRC). I am working on the presentation now and have it broadly defined as a quick look backwards at my analog and black and white work up until the American Series book came out in 2006. Then my main emphasis will be on newer work, including a look at what I am showing at the Danforth Museum in Framingham, MA and Panopticon Gallery in Boston in April.
Additionally, I am having a private showing to collectors of my vintage photographs at my studio on a Sunday afternoon in early March. This is being organized by Jason Landry, owner of Panopticon Gallery, which represents my work in the New England area. If you'd like to attend this event, no guarantees, but I suggest you contact him directly. You may contact him here: Panopticon Gallery
Finally, mark your calendars:
Exhibitions in April
Wheat, showing at the Danforth Museum of Art, Framingham MA April 6- May 26.
As I've written before: the Danforth openings are for museum members only. If you would like to come to the opening, please email me and I will put you on a list. The reception is Saturday April 6. Neal's Email
Islands of Massachusetts, Panopticon Gallery, Boston MA runs from April 3- May 13. Over the past two years I have been aerially photographing all the islands of the the sate. This show will concentrate on Martha's Vineyard, but will have a few photographs from other MA islands too. This a two person show with Brian Kaplan, who will be showing pictures made on the Cape. It is a real honor to be exhibiting with Brian as his work is very very good. The opening reception for this show is Wednesday, April 3, from 5:30-7:30 pm. This one is open to the public.
I am back home, having flown east from San Diego on Friday to avoid another winter storm. It is good to be home.
