Just some general news and video shares today. My iPhoneography solo show is set to run August 8th through September 5th at Gallery 1075, 1075 West Capitol Ave., West Sacramento, CA. There will be an artist’s reception on Thursday, August 9th from 5-7pm and all are invited if you are anywhere near the Sacramento region! I think it will be a fun introduction to iPhoneography for our local community.
I am very honored to be included in the following video along with some of the biggest names in iPhoneography. The video was created by Knox Bronson who is the curator for the site Pixels: The Art of the iPhone.
In 2010, I was the first of two recipients of the View of Farmlands Art & Ag Project public art grant in Yolo County. With the grant I was able to visit a number of local farms and create a photographic series that is currently on tour throughout the county. National Endowment of the Arts Chairman, Rocco Landesman, has stated the Art & Ag Project should serve as a model for the rest of the country. I had the pleasure of performing a video interview with Mr. Landesman when he paid a visit to YoloArts to learn more about the program.
The following video highlights the Art & Ag Project and you can view one of the pieces in my series at about 7:21. I am proud to have played a part in the beginning of this wonderful program that benefits both artists and farmers.
