SRO @ SPE

The Society for Photographic Education’s National Conference is being held in Philadelphia, PA, March 4-7, 2010.

This year’s topic is Facing Diversity:  Leveling the Playing Field in the Photographic Arts, and Priya Kambli will be giving a presentation on the work she showed here last fall.

Muma's, 13 x 19", archival inkjet print, 2006.

Sarah Jamison and I have been invited to be portfolio reviewers and will be looking for outstanding work to show at SRO.  In addition to the formal reviews, SPE is also a great opportunity to see hundreds of people’s work in informal review sessions.

Take a look at the conference’s website:  There are a variety of great speakers and workshops, and, one of my favorites, the Friday evening gallery tours.

Hopefully we’ll see you there!

Abelardo Morell and Allie Humenuk

Abelardo Morell, Two Books of Astronomy, 1996.
Abelardo Morell, Two Books of Astronomy, 1996.

The Southwest School of Art and Craft is exhibiting Abelardo Morell’s The Universe Next Door from September 17 – November 8, 2009.  I very much enjoy Morell’s work and am looking forward to seeing some of it first hand in San Antonio.

Also exciting is the opportunity to view a film on Morell’s life and take part in a question and answer session with Morell and the director of the film, Allie Humenuk.  This is all happening on October 8 at 7PM.  Reservations are required.

That film is Shadow of the House and more information on it and Humenuk may be found here.
