Spring for Art! at McKissick Museum

I am honored once again to be invited to exhibit two pieces for McKissick’s annual Spring for Art! fundraiser gala and exhibition. This year’s theme is “Wonder and Curiosity.” During the past year, I’ve experimented a fair bit with various toning techniques, and as part of that experimentation, I selected a handful of negatives from my 2007 Greece trip for sepia toning. Two of these will be exhibited and available for sale at the gala:


“…And Then Aphrodite Spoke” (Acrocorinth)


“Our Secret Sign” (Ithaca)

These are different works from those associated with the “…But One Man Alone” series and do not feature any of the text images you have seen in that series. Instead, these images are standard-framed, stand alone images. [The images presented here on this site are approximations produced in Photoshop. The images on exhibition at McKissick, however, are true sepia-toned, silver gelatin prints produced in a photochemical darkroom.]

The exhibited images will be on display from March 28 to May 9, 2009. Admission to the gallery is free.

For those wishing to participate in the Gala, it takes place on Friday, March 27, from 7:30 to 10:00pm. Tickets are $55/individual or $100/couple. Please call the Museum office at (803) 777-7251 to purchase tickets.

Each of the above images will be available for sale as part of the Gala. A portion of all proceeds will go directly to McKissick to support museum programs and community education.
