Juror, Anastasia Tompkins, has selected three of my images, among the 105 chosen images from 53 members of the New York City Sierra Club Photography Committee, for an exhibition titled, "Encounters With Nature," that will showcase the organization's best nature photographs in an expansive group photography show. The Photography Committee presents this show, its third Calumet Gallery show, to run from December 3 through the 27th, 2013. An opening night reception will be held Thursday evening, December 5th, from 5:30pm to 8:00pm. Calumet Photo will be hosting this exhibit, which will feature landscapes, wildlife, macros and abstracts photographed throughout the United States and the World, in their 2nd floor gallery located at 22 West 22nd Street (between 5th and 6th ave), New York, NY, USA.
The public is invited and also welcomed to join the opening night reception. The gallery may be accessed either through Calumet Photo on the first floor, or via the building's lobby entrance. The gallery's hours are Mon-Fri., 8:30am-6:00pm; and Sat., 9:00am-6:00pm. A portion of all print sales will benefit the Sierra Club. The Photography Committee hopes that this exhibit will capture nature's beauty and majesty in such a way so that people come away with a renewed desire to preserve and protect our planet's magnificent treasures.
The three images of mine chosen for this exhibit by Anastasia Tompkins, an award-winning photographer and former Exhibit Director of the Westchester Photographic society, are titled; "King Penguins in the Island of South Georgia," "Walruses in Svalbard," and "Polar Bear on Arctic Ice Pack." As has become customary with my work, I am offering the prints in a limited edition of just 3 for each image. The medium is pigment ink on archival 100% cotton rag, and framed. Print sizes are 20" x 16". More information about the New York City Sierra Club Photography Committee may be found on their Web site at http://www.sierraphotonyc.com .
