Two exhibits in the Twin Cities area

My Midwest,Florabundant_StaatsI’m very happy to tell you about two exhibits that I have in the Twin Cities area.  The first is part of a group exhibit at Hudson Hospital in Hudson, Wisconsin.  My collection of photographs is titled “My Midwest.”  This group of images, including the first photograph above from the Boundary Waters in Minnesota, represent the beauty and diversity that I have found while living in the Midwest.  There will be an artists reception at Hudson Hospital this Friday, February 8th from 6:00 to 8:00pm.  You are welcome to come see my work as well as the work of other artists.  My photographs will be at Hudson Hospital through March 17, 2013.

The second exhibit is at St. Barnabas Lutheran Church in Plymouth, Minnesota.  This collection of images is titled “florabundant” and includes the lower photograph of a gaillardia.  These images all celebrate the color, radiance, and wonder that exists in the floral universe.  In contract to our winter landscape which is presently covered in white and devoid of any other colors right now, this collection is filled with the hues and brightness of spring, summer, autumn, and the whites of winter too.  This exhibit runs through the month of February.

Balancing act

I’m pleased to announce that I have a collection of photographs that will be exhibited at the Hudson Hospital in Hudson, Wisconsin beginning this Wednesday, August 3rd.  The hospital has a wonderful healing arts program which includes over 200 works of art throughout the entire campus, including patient rooms.  My images for this exhibit are titled “Close to Home.”  I have been interested in the belief held by so many people that we must travel to faraway places to find the beautiful things in our world.  Yet in the small area of my city lot with its small brick house and gardens is a world of great beauty and wonder, like this monarch butterfly that balanced on a purple coneflower one hot day in July. The exhibit runs from August 3rd through December 11th.  There is an artist reception this Friday, August 5th from 6:00 to 8:00pm.  I invite any one near the Twin Cities area to come to the reception or to stop by the Hudson Hospital to see their fine exhibit.  For more information about the hospital or for directions, please go to
