March: ’30 Under 30′ and ‘Artrageous!28’

Hello friends! I hope everyone is enjoying the extra daylight and the promise of spring.

Just a quick update today with two events I’m participating in in March. The first is 30 Under 30,” an exhibition of 30 local-ish artists under the age of 30. The exhibition was juried by Katherine French, Executive Director of the Danforth Museum, and opens this coming Thursday, March 13th, from 5:30-7:30. Most, if not all, of the participating artists will be there, so come say hi!

Second, I have donated two photographs to the Monserrat College of Art auction, Artrageous!28, to be held on Saturday, March 29th at 6pm. Proceeds from the event go support financial aid awards for students, which I’m thrilled to help fund. There will be over 200 pieces of work for auction, lovely food and beverages, and a fantastic crowd, so I do hope you make the trek up to Beverly on the 29th for an enjoyable evening of art and celebration!

For more info and to purchase tickets, visit Montserrat’s auction website.

News and New Photos

Hello all from the very snowy Northeast! I figured I’d take advantage of being snowed in to share some really exciting news and a few new photos.

First things first – I am thrilled to report that my work is currently being shown in Cambridge, England! United Photo Industries joined with the Centre for Research in the Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities at the University of Cambridge to create Human Flows, a group exhibition of photography on the topic of humanity and movement. I’m on the lookout for photos of the installation and show opening, but in the meantime, you can read more about the exhibition here.

Over the last two months I also took advantage of the break between my classes to do a bit of shooting towards a new project. I’m keeping most of the work private until the project is complete, but I wanted to share two of the new images with you. I also rediscovered an old image from 2008, and you can see all three below. I’d love to hear your thoughts on the work in the comments!

Women in Photography Night at the Photographic Resource Center

I have been volunteering with the Photographic Resource Center (PRC) at Boston University since last October, and have greatly enjoyed the various events and opportunities they offer. The organization truly is one of the best resources for photographers in New England. I was very excited to have the opportunity to share my work at one of their peer-review nights last Thursday. Lisa Kessler, a professor at Endicott College, hosted the night in which I, Leslie Jardine, Barbara Trachtenberg, Paris Visone, and Ryan McMahon shared our work. The conversation was lively, and the work shared showed a wide breadth of photographic interests and the stellar quality of work happening in the Boston area.
