The Louisville Photo Biennial may officially be over, but there are still some great LPB exhibits up in and around town.  You can see my work in LVA’s Louisville Photo Biennial exhibit Altered Perceptions at Mayor Greg Fischer’s gallery at Metro Hall until January 18th, 2018.

You can also take a trip down 1-65 south to beautiful Bernheim Arboretum and Research Forest and see the photo biennial show I’m not only featured in, but one I also curated in my new role as Bernheim’s Visual Art Coordinator!

FOTO FOREST: Photographic Selections by Bernheim Artists in Residence is on view at the Education Center until December 29th so you still have lots of time to see this exhibit and get a hike in before the new year!

For more than three decades, the Artist in Residence program has attracted artists from around the world who seek to use Bernheim as their inspiration and to explore ideas that reinforce Bernheim’s mission of connecting people with nature.

Photography as an artistic medium has a long-standing history in the Artist in Residence program at Bernheim.  But as the photographic medium has changed over the years, so has artistic interpretation of the landscape changed with photography.  FOTO FOREST is an exhibition that celebrates unique and diverse interpretations of the Bernheim landscape.

ALUMINATURE at Swanson Contemporary

Excited to announce my upcoming solo exhibition, ALUMINATURE at Swanson Contemporary from September 27TH – October 28TH 2017!   #savethedate   #ALUMINATURE  #onehelluvayear


ALUMINATURE references not only to the variety of aluminum surfaces to which images are presented onto but also to the phenomena of the natural world in my subject matter. The exhibition features work from several recent series in addition to new works inspired by my experience as the 2017 Regional Artist in Residence at Bernheim Arboretum and Research Forest. 

Swanson Contemporary will also be open during the First Friday Trolley Hop on October 6th from 6 – 9 PM.  The gallery is located in the heart of the NULU Arts District at 636 East Market in Louisville, Kentucky.  Hours of operation are Wednesday through Saturday from 12 – 6 pm.

ALUMINATURE is a featured exhibition in the 2017 Louisville Photo Biennial, a regional festival occurring in over 60 venues throughout Louisville, Lexington and Southern Indiana from September 22nd through November 11th.
