It’s hard to believe but in just over a month I take a magical step and become artist.
It’s true from photojournalist to artist in one bold step. Hiking partner and fellow photographer Alice DeLaurier-O’Neil and I will feature a collection of our photography works in a show at the Grand Theatre’s art gallery in March.
Alice came up with the thought of making the gallery show proposal over a year ago. Dozens of discussions, pouring over pictures and culling them down to a final catalog of images brought me down to 41 images from the thousands of images I shot on the trails of our adventures.
We made a proposal that was accepted and then came the task of getting the work printed. Our work will be presented in a couple of ways. Some will be printed on canvas stretched on frames while others will be printed on metallic paper for unique color sheen.
I am not sure how big the final show layout will be as that is still in the works as we enter the home stretch of show preparation. Stay tuned for details and time of the show opening.
