Indiana Small Towns Project Exhibit

Opening Janury 7, 2011 at the The Harrison Center for the Arts I will be exhibiting a selection of 13 images from my Indiana Small Towns Project.

From my archive, these images were made between 1992 and 1995. This will be the first time that these photographs have been exhibited.

Writer and poet Karen Stroup has written about the photographs and what they represent.  Her writings will be available at the exhibit.

This exhibit is in tandem with the Sign Show.  The Facebook event page has all of the particulars regarding The Harrison's Center's January First Friday events.

IMA Andy Warhol Exhibit Opening Party, October 9, 2010

So, I'm a little late in posting some snapshots from the Warhol Opening...

Daniel Axler and Maxwell Anderson
The party was great!  It sure appeared that everybody was having an excellent time.  There were people of all ages, which was really cool.  The DJ played music from various artists that had Warhol connections,  which was cool as well.  Not everybody found the music to be all that fab.  On our way out Satch and I had a nice conversation with an older couple that had a different opinion.  I asked them what they thought of the music and the gentleman said, "I don't call that music, I call that noise!"  So, the anti-rock and roll establishment lives on in Indianapolis. Somehow that is comforting especially now that I can hear David Bowie et al when shopping in the local Kroger grocery store.

Maxwell Anderson's Shoes
The exhibit is pretty special.  It has a nice cross section of pieces through the length of Warhol's career.  My favorite room is the last one with his screen print self portraits.  Yet again, IMA is to be commended for another top-notch special exhibition.  I strongly recommend that you get to it if you have not.  It is open until January 2, 2011.

It's been a while..

...since I have posted anything. I've been working on some new directions so I haven't been producing any finished work. Here's a photograph that I made late this fall with a plastic trash camera. It does not have a title yet.
