Due to severe snow-related parking shortages for any sort of big nighttime event and more predicted snow coming, the reception and artist talk scheduled for tomorrow night at 555 Gallery has been canceled. In happier news, the show has been extended until February 25th, so there is still time to see the exhibition.
I also wanted to mentioned that tonight, February 6th, there is an opening at Portland’s PhoPa Gallery at 5 pm for the “Inside/Out” Exhibition. This exhibition is curated by Susan Danly and includes three Nickelson Edition clients (Sarah Szwajkos, Thomas Birtwistle, and Jeffery Becton).
Thanks to everyone who has sent me their favorite photograph from 2014! If you’d like to be including in my upcoming post of reader favorite photographs, please send me a jpeg file and link by the end of this coming weekend.
After a very enjoyable New Years Eve preview party, the Under Astral Skies exhibition is now officially underway! The exhibition extends to February 14th at Boston’s 555 Gallery and I’d love for you to check it out. (and if you do, let me know what you think!)
Elin Spring just posted the first review of show this morning on her blog (her blog is a must-read for anyone interested in photography shows throughout New England).
The 555 Gallery is rapidly becoming an essential destination in New England’s photography scene and I’m proud to be with the gallery now. You can read a bit about the gallery in this blog post from this morning by Neal Rantoul.
I took a few photographs before the preview party…you’ll note the decorations all about for the New Years Eve party — I have to remember to go back and get installation shots without bottles of champagne and streamers prominently included. I love in particular how the full moon photographs work with that dark gray wall…
I’m incredibly excited about my upcoming exhibition at Boston’s 555 Gallery. 555 Gallery is a great new contemporary fine art photography gallery in the up-and-coming South Boston area. The exhibition opens with a fancy ticketed preview party on New Years Eve (9-12 pm), and then is open during the gallery’s regular hours through February 14th. There will be a reception and artist talk on February 7th — stay tuned for more details!
The exhibition is entitled “Under Astral Skies” and will feature quite a bit of new work from both my Pyrotechnic and Adventures in Celestial Mechanics projects. I’ll have a total of 3 36″x36″ and 9 24″x24″ Pyrotechnic pieces and 6 16″x16″ of my full moon pieces. This is my biggest exhibition to date in terms of the number and size of the pieces, and I’d say about 75% of the work on display is new work that has never been previously exhibited.
The exhibition also includes the work of Amy Friend, Corinne Schultz, and Christopher Wright. I can’t wait to see the work of the other artists.
So, if you are in the Boston area, I’d love for you to check out this great new gallery and the exhibition, and if you do please let me know what you think!
The exhibit is up until about August 6th (I’m still finalizing this aspect — it could end a few days earlier). There are 7 24″x24″ images and 3 8″x8″ images in the show. It is a lovely preserve, too, so I highly recommend checking out the entire Gilsland Farm complex.
As spring slowly — very slowly — approaches here in Maine, there are quite a few shows opening up this weekend. Heather Frederick of VoxPhotographs just posted her list of photography shows in Maine and beyond Maine.
My work is in a show opening up at the lovely Wallwork Gallery in Rockport, with an opening reception and wine tasting from 4-7 pm on Saturday, May 3rd. The exhibition includes work from eight photographers all taken on a single day at the unique Montpelier (a/k/a the Knox Mansion). It should be a great show and I look forward to seeing all the different work on display.
As a reminder, my solo exhibition at the Maine Media Gallery in Rockport ends tomorrow, March 1st. The exhibition is entitled Adventures in Celestial Mechanics and encompasses my photographs of the full moon from various locations in the Maine landscape. The reception and artist talk will start at 4 pm — hope to see many of you there!
My daughter learned about haikus recently in her second grade class and wrote a haiku to go along with my photograph that leads this post…here is her poem:
I have a new selection of work from my Pyrotechnic project completed, which I’ve included in this post. Please let me know what you think and if you have any favorites!
One of my Pyrotechnic pieces is also included in the Winter Solstice Show at the Griffin Museum of Photography in Winchester, MA. The opening reception is tonight from 6-8 pm (I unfortunately cannot attend) and the exhibition goes until December 23rd (hours are Tuesday-Sunday 12-4). There are over 120 pieces in the show from the same number of artists, so I’m sure there will be much to everyone’s liking.
And don’t forget that you can see five of my Pyrotechnic pieces in larger scale at the NEPR Showcase at the PRC Gallery on the BU Campus in Boston until December 20th…
Thanks to all who came out for the opening on Friday night at the PRC in Boston! I enjoyed meeting many new people and I also greatly enjoyed seeing the work of the other artists included in the show. You can read two good reviews of the exhibit by the PRC’s Kaleigh Musgrove and another by Elin Spring. If you are interested in shows in the Boston area, Elin has a great collection of reviews of all kinds of fine art photography shows in the area, as well as other valuable content such as artist interviews, on her blog.
I love how the work was hung in the show – I also ended up with a pretty continuous space for my 5 24″x24″ pieces, as you can see from these two quick installation shots. You can find out more about the exhibition here (it extends until Dec. 20th) and you can see more of my Pyrotechnic series here.
If you make it to the show let me know what you think!
