Full Color Circle

Mark / Art Shows / / 0 Comments

In 2006 after 8 years of building my photographic portfolio by logging countless miles in the back country of southeastern North Dakota…and then returning to St.Louis, I presented much of my black & white work in my first gallery show at Governor French Academy in Belleville, Il. I am so happy to say that, now 10 years later, I will be presenting some of my photographic color work back in Belleville where it all began.

That’s right! On March 7th my photographic work will again be on display at the gallery at Governor French Academy. The Opening Night will be held on March 11th from 6-8pm. This will also be my very first solo show! On display will be some of my most popular black & white prints as captured in the back country of North Dakota. Along with those pieces will be some of my recent full color work produced on high gloss metal prints.

From the first time I produced “City Stream” on a metal print and saw how that low light photographic glowed with the city lights, I cannot think of any better way to share my love of low light work. In fact, just a few days ago I received my 30″ x 20″ print of “Fire Storm” and can’t wait to share this one with you all.

Over those 10 years I have presented my black & whites in galleries & coffeehouses on both sides of the river, worked for the Edwardsville Intelligencer newspaper as a staff photographer, continued to capture our local world in black & white as well as beautiful color, but what I am most proud of was being chosen among the Sheldon Art Galleries’ TOP 100 for their “St.Louis @ 250” art show in 2014 with my panoramic photo “Moon Over St.Louis.”

Other than the Sheldon, I have not taken the time to present my work in galleries since 2008, though I have been happy to have my work seen in Straight Up Magazine, the Edwardsville Intelligencer, and of the Daniel Boone Haunted Tour, to name a few. This is why I am very happy to turn my focus back to sharing my work again through galleries.

Also, be sure to check out the work I have available on Saatchi Art and Amazon!
