One of my prints will be featured in this great fundraising exhibition put together by curator, Ginevra Shay! Current Space in Baltimore, MD is trying to raise $ for their new darkroom and photo programs/classes/lectures. I am so excited to see an emerging platform in Baltimore to help photographers. Now all we need is a gallery space dedicated to contemporary photography, right?! Please join and enjoy the show!
“Current Space is excited to announce plans to build a black and white community darkroom and will be having a one night only slide show and exhibition of Baltimore photographers titled, “Good Light” on November 16th, 2012. The exhibition intends to raise awareness for the darkroom and launch a kickstarter to raise the remaining funds needed for build out. In 2013 Current will start a photography programming initiative that will include classes, workshops, lectures and a critique group.
Alex Heilner, the Associate Dean for Design and Media at MICA and winner of this year’s Baker Artist Award will start off the evening by giving a forty-minute lecture about his photography. Prior to MICA he was the Director of Photography at JCC in Brooklyn, NY, which included overseeing a black and white darkroom.
Current Space is an artist-run gallery, studio, and a headquarters for cultural production. Current Space is committed to showcasing, developing, and broadening the reach of artists locally and internationally.”

I am proud to be a part of a group exhibition called “Call Collect” at one of my favorite galleries in DC: Hamiltonian Gallery! I donated the print you see above to help them raise funds. If you are in the area, please stop by! Check out the exhibition catalog here. A huge thank you to artist and Hamiltonian Fello, Milana Braslavsky for nominating me to be a part of this wonderful exhibition. What an honor!
“Hamiltonian is proud to present Call Collect, a three week long exhibition featuring original works of art by 100 emerging and established contemporary artists from the greater DC metro area. For Call Collect, Hamiltonian asked its growing network of fellows, mentor-artists, and friends to nominate their artist peers to participate in the exhibition and a special collector’s night . Call Collect is a unique opportunity for Hamiltonian to highlight artistic talent outside of its fellowship program and honor the careers of other artists from DC’s vibrant contemporary art scene.
Call Collect will run from October 20th through November 9th with a closing reception on Friday, November 9th from 7-9pm. On October 18th, Hamiltonian Artists hosted a special benefit during which 100 guests had the opportunity to preview the exhibit and choose one of the works of art in Call Collect for their private collection.
Participating artists include current members and alumni of the Hamiltonian Fellowship program, the WPA’s Artist Directory, 52 O Street Studios, Flux Studios, Red Dirt Studios, the DCCAH Art Bank, Mid City Artists, MICA and Corcoran alumni as well as established artists represented by CONNERSMITH., G Fine Art, Hemphill Fine Arts, Addison/Ripley Fine Arts and Project 4 Gallery.

Dear friends, family and colleagues,
I am so excited to share my new digital photographs with you in my first solo exhibition. I hope to see you at the opening this Friday, March 9, 2012, 5-7 pm in the Gateway Gallery at the Maryland Institute College of Art. For those of you who are not in the area, please visit my website to see the series, Everyone In The Family Feels It. RSVP on Facebook here.
Anthropologist Walter Goldschmidt states, “That with war, as with all matters cultural, the society shapes natural human capacities and potentialities to its accepted purposes, reinforcing some and suppressing others…by systematically rewarding and punishing, by indoctrinating youth, creating role models to be emulated, and honoring those who perform well.” Everyone in the Family Feels It is a series of photographs that explore the missing father figure within the military lifestyle of my sister‘s family. The father’s absence affects the whole family.

Everyone in the Family Feels It, is an interdisciplinary solo show that explores the psychology of family dynamics, gender roles, family tragedy and particularly the missing father figure.
