‘Voodoo’ and ‘Flood of Emotions’ receive awards in Abstract April show


It is a great honor to receive recognition for my photography-based abstracts in the Abstract April show on display through April 30, 2022, at the Covered Bridge Art Gallery in Rockville, Indiana.

Judge Cheryl Harris, a professional designer, illustrator, fine artist and muralist from Covington, Indiana, awarded my ‘Voodoo’ First Place in the Photography (Digitally Enhanced) category and Best of Show!

(April 30 update: I was pleasantly surprised at the closing reception and awards ceremony to learn that “Voodoo” will have a new home with a Rockville art collector!)

I created my entry using a photograph I made of a sunrise over Kentucky Lake. It is a dye sublimation process on high gloss HD metal with a silver flush mount presentation.

In addition, my ‘Flood of Emotions’ received a Third Place in the same category. It is another one-of-a-kind creation using the same photograph of Kentucky Lake. It also is my first image I presented on textured metal and then had it float-mounted off a brushed aluminum background.

Rockville is in Parke County, Indiana, the Covered Bridge Capital of the World.

‘Tennessee Whiskey’ and ‘Blossoming Madly’ on display in Covered Bridge country


Tennessee Whiskey and Blossoming Madly

Very honored to be in the company of several artists with more talent in their little pinky who are featured in the July Associate Members Show at the Covered Bridge Art Association Gallery in Rockville, Indiana.

Among the 32 works in this show, I have two entries in the photography category and both received awards.

“Tennessee Whiskey,” a double exposure image on aluminum, was awarded Second Place. The judge wrote, “A good eye to see this makes a great photo. Fun title. Well framed.”

An Honorable Mention went to my abstract image titled “Blossoming Madly,” which the judge noted, “Makes one want to explore more closely. Imaginative.”

A closing reception is scheduled 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday, July 29, in CBAA’s Gallery at 124 W. Ohio St. on the Parke County Courthouse square.
