Solo Fine Art Photography Show - "Picture the Presence"

April 28 - June 8

Artist's Reception: Sunday, May 19 from 2-5pm

Center for Spiritual Living Morristown, 331 Mt Kemble Ave, Morristown, NJ

Picture the Presence. The calm and the peaceful. Take this opportunity to pause, slow down and just Be. I invite you to enter into a realm of stillness, majestic simplicity and intense presence. While photographs inherently freeze moments in time, the aim of this set of fine art images is to go beyond time, without regard to past or future, to be still and completely present. Allow each piece to fill you with gentleness, grace and tranquility. Allow the images to speak to you with great clarity yet in perfect silence. Let the images be a reflection of your true nature, your divine energy, your beautiful Light and Soul. Life mirroring Life. May the space contained in the images hold you in the Now.


Inspired by Nature

Exhibition Without Walls is an international organization for photographers and digital artists. Over 200 images were submitted to EWW's newest online photography competition /  group exhibition with theme "Inspired by Nature". I'm so pleased to share that the jurors selected one of my images and it received an Honorable Mention!

Opening Reception: Sunday, May 19 from 4-7pm

Hours: 1-7pm everyday including Memorial Day

I'll be showing my work in NYC as part of the 2019 "Every Woman Biennial", an all-woman and women-identified bi-coastal art biennial!! Curated by C. Finley and timed with The Whitney Museum’s Biennial, the aim is to extend the celebration of art and create even more opportunities for emerging women artists. My piece "Oak Creek Canyon" taken in Sedona last year was selected to be part of this event! This huge salon-style show will have works in all media located in two galleries, 222 Bowery (where mine will be) and La MaMa Galleria (47 Great Jones St, NY NY 10003) with Opening Receptions at both locations on May 19. (A sister biennial in Los Angeles featuring LA-based artists will occur later in June.) All details here!

Blank Wall Gallery

I'm honored and excited to be showing my work for the first time at the Blank Wall Gallery in Athens, Greece!!!! My piece "Grand Prismatic Spring" taken at Yellowstone National Park in 2011 was selected to be part of this show with theme of COLOR - how we see and think in color, how color is ubiquitous and plays a dominant role in our lives and psychology, how color has the power to create moods, evoke emotions and make our days brighter or duller. They show the world in a different way!

This strong group show by members of the NJ Photo Forum that showed in Rahway in 2018 and then the J&J World Headquarters in New Brunswick in January of this year is making its third presentation at the beautiful CCM Gallery. Three of my abstract photo pieces are in this show.



Online Exhibits:

Color Balance    Don't Smile is an online space devoted to women photographers. This online group exhibit entitled Color Balance aims to show photographic work by women of color. I happy to be one of thirteen women photographers of color to be included in this set! My image, "Work is Reality", was taken in 1990 in India on a train from Bengaluru to Mysore.


"555 Special"    Light Space & Time is an online art gallery with monthly themed competitions and exhibitions for new and emerging artists on a worldwide basis. The gallery's June 2018 exhibit was a "555 Special" competition, meaning artists could submit 5 images and the gallery selected 5 overall winning artists. There were over 1500 entries from 40 countries of 2D and 3D submissions in abstract and representational form of various media. Though I wasn't in the top 5, I'm happy that one of my images, "Dogwood Days of Spring", received Special Recognition.


The Healing Power of Art & Artists   The Healing Power of ART & ARTISTS is a community of artists, writers and activists who share the belief that art has the power to heal, inspire, provoke, challenge and offer hope. "Art serves as a positive catalyst for healing individuals, society and the environment." In celebration of their third anniversary, they invited artists and organizations from around the world to submit art and statements about how art has the power to heal. I'm happy that my image "Moments & Movements" was selected to be part of this anniversary set.


Figurative   Light Space & Time is an online art gallery that conducts monthly themed online competitions and exhibitions for new and emerging artists on a worldwide basis. The gallery's April 2018 exhibit is their 8th annual "Figurative" theme, calling for 2D and 3D submissions in abstract or representational form of various media. The gallery received 626 entries from 27 different countries, and I'm thrilled that two of my images were accepted in the Photography & Digital group: "Brooklyn Beauty" as Special Recognition Category and "Window Woman" as Special Merit Category. They have YouTube videos showcasing the Special Recognition and Special Merit awarded works (mine are at minute 3:36 and 13:45, respectively). Exhibits and videos are also archived.


Home    Don't Smile is an online photography gallery with a simple aim: "to carve out a space of the Internet exclusively dedicated for showcasing exceptional photography by women, both established and emerging. The world still seems to be struggling to make space for women in museums, galleries, and print. Don't Smile aims to aid in the shift to a more inclusive industry that celebrates extraordinary photographic work by women from all walks of life and backgrounds." The current exhibit is about the concept of home, spanning anywhere from the feeling of home, domesticity, quotidian life, to anything pertaining to home. I'm happy that my image "Yin Yang" was selected and will also be included in the "Don't Smile: Year Two" zine, available for purchase here.


Shift   Light Leaked is a bi-monthly online photography magazine that creates community and dialogue. For this current issue, a collection of photos entitled Shift, jurors were seeking entries that "evoke conversation or trigger change, ranging from an individual to legislative level." Photography has been a tool for change since the early days of the medium. Shift emphasizes how photography is being made now to examine issues in a myriad of approaches. I am one of 40 photographers invited to be part of this set.
