As one who loves lurking about with a camera to capture unguarded moments, I find that I can also be adept at dodging cameras. Agreeing to be photographed and to speak while the video is rolling is something I rarely do. There are, however, times when I dare to step out and I now present you with evidence of my doing exactly that. The bottom line is that I am most excited about my new CHULEE collection and a short video clip seemed to be the best way to share the story while also giving the viewer a true picture of the scale of the pieces now hanging at the Alabama State Council on the Arts. Thank you to my long-time friend, the talented Will Frampton, who journeyed from Atlanta to shoot footage and create this wonderful video.
If you have not yet gotten your first edition copy of CHULEE: the Spirit of the Pine Tree, a unique view of the forest for the trees, click here. I will sign it along with Miles, my talented other half and brilliant wordsmith, and get it headed your way.
Pines are evergreens, but the Pine exhibit featuring CHULEE work is not. You can see it through the end of October in the Alabama Artists Gallery on the first floor of the RSA Tower in downtown Montgomery between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday to Friday. For more scoop on the exhibit and opening event, check out this nice article by the incredibly kind Deborah Moore of the Montgomery Advertiser.
The next sighting of work from the CHULEE collection will be at the Plantation Wildlife Arts Festival in Thomasville, Georgia from November 21st to 23rd. When you check out their website to see how fabulous the event is going to be, feel free to click the little heart button under my featured image!
Thanks for your continued support on my camera journey!
