I am thrilled and humbled to announce the MacDowell Colony has awarded me a Fellowship for the 2015 Summer Residency. Their tagline is "Freedom To Create" -- which is exactly what I'll be doing. Using the studio's darkroom, I will revisit, edit and print my early (1974-82) B&W negatives. Although the early edit led to solo exhibitions, the fellowship offers the opportunity to prepare an updated portfolio for galleries and museums.It will also be a fascinating opportunity to look through the prism of time to see what the imagery says now about that era.
A selection of my photographs taken in Appalachia will be exhibited at Central Booking Gallery from April 16 - May 10th. The group show, organized by Joyce Ellen Weinstein, includes artists who work in a variety of media including sculpture, painting and photography.

It was an honor Marina Hadley chose SEEN AND FELT: Appalachia 2012 to be featured in L'Oeil de la Photographie. Hadley, the owner of Chelsea gallery MZUrbanArt, said "Your images touched my heart and created nostalgia for something I had never experienced."
