I am very excited and honored to announce that Loss from my Memory Pods project was juried into the Irvine Fine Art Center (IFAC) All Media 2016 exhibition. The juror was Dan Cameron who most recently was the past Chief Curator for the Orange County Museum of Art (OCMA) and who is now an independent curator. This acceptance is another great validation on the response to my Memory Pods project that I received during Photo Independent earlier this year.

The All Media 2016 exhibition dates are September 3rd – October 22, 2016 at the Irvine Fine Art Center, 14321 Yale Ave., Irvine CA. The opening reception is Saturday, September 3rd, from 4-6pm. Needless to say, I hope to see you there!

Meanwhile, this limited edition print is in the process of being archival framed.

As to the photograph, I was taken by the slow demise of the seed pods of this plant and how many were falling off and in this case, one seed pod stubbornly remained. A potential metaphor about one remaining and persistent memory amidst the turbulent chaos when all else appears to be failing.

What I need to work on now is getting my web site updated with more of the photographs from this project. If its not one think, its another, but this is all good.

Cheers!
