Crossing Uneven Ground

Autumn 2019 Photography Shows

I’m happy to announce that two of my photographs have been selected for display in Southeastern Wisconsin art exhibits.


Wolf River Whirlpool, Wisconsin
Whirlpool Revealed has been selected for display at the Cedarburg Cultural Center.

Cedarburg Artist’s Guild Juried Show

My image Whirlpool Revealed will be shown at the Cedarburg Cultural Center as part of the Annual Juried Show sponsored by The Cedarburg Artist’s Guild.

Whirlpool Revealed is from my “Wisconsin’s Wolf River Project,” an ongoing labor of love for one of the great wild rivers of North America. This photograph was made on a stretch of the Wolf River where the water moves very slowly. Only if you take the time to watch carefully can you see the subtle motion of a whirlpool. A long, 25 second, exposure with the camera on a tripod captures the pattern in the water. The dark reflections of pines from the opposite river bank provide the contrast necessary to reveal the spirit I sense in this place.

The exhibit runs: Saturday, September 2 – Sunday, October 15
Opening Reception: Thursday, September 7 
Members & Artists Champagne Preview: 5-6 pm 
Public Invited: 6-8 pm
Cedarburg Cultural Center, W62 N546 Washington Avenue, Cedarburg


GET THE PICTURE: THE ARTHUR P. HAAS WISCONSIN PHOTOGRAPHY COLLECTION

Vermillion Cliffs Arizona
Stone’s Embrace is a photograph that was selected for the Racine Art Museum’s permanent collection.

I’ve been fortunate enough to have images selected for the RAM Wustum Museum’s “Wisconsin Photography Show” several times, but last year I was honored to have a photograph chosen for their permanent collection. This year the an exhibition entitled “Get The Picture” will show 40 photographs from the permanent collection and mine is one of them.

Stone’s Embrace is an image I made in Arizona’s Vermilion Cliffs National Monument. After a long drive over rough terrain I saw rock formations that had an odd reticulated pattern. As I studied the landscape human forms started to become visible. It was as if a procession of ancient people fell and became fossilized in place. They lay there where they fell, wrapped in an eternal embrace.

This photograph is part of my “Emergence Project” which is an ongoing attempt to capture photographically the myths and metaphors that emerge in my mind while I meditate with a camera in nature.

The exhibit runs: August 23 – November 16, 2019

    I continue to be amazed by your talent. You not only have the eye to capture the unusual in nature, but you also have to the voice to articulate what it speaks to you.

    Thank you for sharing your talent and insights.
