my first exhibit!

This has been about 2 years in the making, but I'm proud to say that some of my fine art is being displayed at Magnolia Foods in Lynchburg, VA- my hometown. Magnolia features artwork from local and regional artists and a LONG time ago, I was added to the exhibit list. My work was originally supposed to be displayed this past October-December and after waiting almost a year for that spot, they realized they had accidentally double booked two artists for the same slot. So, long story short- I played the waiting game again. But all is well with the world and 18 of my fine art prints are now hanging on the walls!

I've always been slightly obsessed with junk: old abandoned buildings, dilapidated sheds and structures, rusty old cars, nuts, bolts, locks, rust... the stuff most people dismiss as an eyesore. I, however, live for this kind of "junk." A lot of my early photography revolved around old cars and locks. Then I added in old buildings, doors and most recently, I began documenting rust patterns. Yes, I said rust. When you photograph rust textures extremely close, they rock! Well, at least I think they rock. Anyways, here are a few of the prints that are on display at Magnolia.

I love the third one. Almost Rotho-esque, but not quite. ;-) Congratulations on the exhibit.
