Every year during the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, I show my favorite photographs made over the previous twelve months. I started this tradition in my Olema studio in 1994, twenty-two years ago. Each year, I pause and relax, enjoying the memories and photographs. There are hundreds of them! I choose my favorites, ones that I hope you, too, will like. These personal selections will hang in my gallery and will also appear online in New Photographs 2015. We’ll have a reception at the gallery on Saturday, Thanksgiving weekend. I look forward to sharing my new work with you.
The photo that heads this newsletter, Dinner Time…, I’ve chosen as the featured image to announce my annual new photos show. It’s from a summer’s walk a few blocks from downtown Point Reyes Station. What makes it special for me is the beauty of the late afternoon light and the serenity of the moment–the poignant comraderie of these gentle animals at dinner time. When I look at the photo, I feel thankful for my life here in Point Reyes.
This week, my home studio is bustling with activity as my assistant Catherine and I mat and frame these new prints. We’ll hang them all by Thanksgiving Day. Then, we’ll open the doors to the gallery the next day – Friday, November 27th. The reception will be Saturday afternoon, November 28th, 3-5pm. We hope you’ll join us! Please come by for some refreshments and celebrate with us as we kick off the holiday season! The show runs until January 3rd, 2016.
What’s Showing – A sampling
This year’s show includes the photograph of an Oak Circle I discovered at an oak grove near Mount Burdell in Marin county.
Just two weeks ago I found a Tidal Pool gleaming in the late sun at Kehoe Beach on the Point Reyes coast. And, I couldn’t resist including several new closeup abstracts, one featuring sand patterns and another – a spider’s web strung with starbursting Pearls.
As always, prints will be available in every size from jewel-like miniatures to dramatic, large wall prints. Also, some of the new work will be available in special-edition notecards at the gallery during the exhibit. We plan to have something for everyone.
The exhibit will run through the winter holidays. Our doors are open every Friday, Saturday & Sunday from 11-5. Private showings can also be arranged during our non-open hours. Just give us a call or email us to make a time to meet us at the gallery. (We live just a block away from our beautiful little gallery.)
