In the Spring of 2021, I was the featured photographer in the 2021 Back Mountain Review, an annual literary journal showcasing the creative diversity of people within the Appalachian Mid-Atlantic region. The publication includes 12 of my black-and-white images, including the cover photo, "Glade Creek Mill".
"Step into My World" and "Design & Decay - Color" were two of 70 prints juried into the 7th annual Allegany National Photography Competition and Exhibition (ANPCE), sponsored by the Allegany Arts Council. The show, which attracted 827 entries from 42 states, was held in April 2021 in Cumberland, MD.
In addition, "Step into My World" received the People's Choice Award at the annual Cumberland Valley Photography Exhibit held at the Washington County Museum of Fine Arts in Hagerstown, MD. Two other photos -- "Naxos Potter Yia Yia" and "Design & Decay - Monochrome" -- also were accepted for the exhibit.
Last Fall, I teamed up with long-time friend and visual artist Dr. Charles McElfish to present a two-person, multi-media show entitled "Silent Footsteps: Meditations and Meanderings" at the Stephanie Ann Roper Gallery on the campus of Frostburg State University.
