During the month of August I will be presenting a show at the Stover Mill Gallery in Erwinna, Pa. titled “Feels Like Home”.
The work is a mixture of images captured with traditional film and digital cameras exploring color light and textures. Some images are manipulated to create my vision of the subject lying beyond our everyday vision. Images are printed using pigment inks with selected images created onto film and emulsion then transferred to metal and paper.
During the 70’s I tried to spend as much time as I could at our cabin in Upper Black Eddy doing the normal things like water skiing, fishing and trying to soak in the small town atmosphere of the river area. One year with friends we explored the river by canoe from about Easton to Point Pleasant camping two nights along the river bank and canal. Years later now living in Virginia I find myself constantly relating my landscapes to what feels good, like home.
Stover Mill background
At one point in its life the mill was a functioning gristmill grinding corn until 1932 and drawing its power from the Delaware River. Over the years it has survived countless floods and winters with ice flow on the river.
Today it is a gallery run by the Tinicum Civic Association in support of the arts. From April to October the gallery features one artist each month and only one photographer for the season. I feel very fortunate to be accepted to show my work at the gallery. I hope you are able to visit the show.
