My “I Dream of Galveston” images in Austin Gallery Show

This past Friday night, October 7, was the opening reception for The Gathering of Photographers juried show at Flatbed Press/O2 Gallery, a unique art space in Austin, Texas.

Pleased that four of my images from the series, “I Dream of Galveston” were chosen for the show, and looking forward to celebrating with the other photographers and seeing their work, I drove up for the evening from Houston.

What a nice surprise to find that my work had been selected for an “Honorable Mention” award – and playfully nicknamed by the jurors “Mighty Beach Series.”*

* They were fun, but don’t be fooled: they’re serious, and seriously accomplished:

Jurors included Pulitzer Prize winner Skeeter Hagler,  photojournalist Kevin Vandivier,  designer Kelley Toombs, and photographer/ Pulitzer Prize judge Gary Fong. (See summaries here)
A huge thank-you to all of my sponsors and supporters who helped me participate in this show – you know who you are – I appreciate you greatly!

The show will be hanging until November 4th. There’s a great diversity of images, themes, and photographers – Enjoy if you’re in the area –

All images from the show, 20″ x 24″ matted and framed, are also for sale – contact Flatbed Press Gallery or me for details…
