Dead of winter--but the photographer's work burns bright!

It may be the dead of winter, but this does not mean that things are standing still in my little corner of the photography world!!
Today was an unbelievable day here in the northeast, weather wise at least. It was 80 in my backyard--in February!! Usually this weekend is the coldest and snowiest of the year--not this year-Thank you global warming! Now, thus, is a great time to shake off the winter doldrums and get out--to a gallery and see my photographs!
My image, "Photo finish" continues to hang at the Monmouth Museum's prestigious Juried Art Show. The show continues until March 13th and it contains much to fill the eye and delight the brain--pottery, drawings (especially by my pal Bill Ross), sculpture, paintings, and photographs, of course. See it soon before it is gone forever!
One of my more tranquil works, "Quiet sunset," is now hanging at the TRAC members gallery in Downtown Toms River. The gallery is new and it features the work of members of the Toms River Artist Community (TRAC), of which I am a member. The items in the gallery change each month and it is a portal into the emerging art scene here in Ocean County. There is a nice variety of works, including drawing, painting, and photography, of course. The gallery is part of the "Shops on Main" in downtown on Main Street and it is certainly worth visiting!
Starting in less than a week, two of my works will be included in the Belmar Arts Center's Annual Photography show. The images are "Sailor dance" and "Boardwalk sunset", and both are in black and white. This year the show is entitled "13x19" and all of the submitted works must be that size and that size only. All will be for sale for $99. I think the idea is a novel one--everyone starts out equal in size, and the quality emerges. The reception for the show is on Saturday, February 25, from 5 to 7, and it runs for about a month.
Finally, the always wonderful "Eyesights" annual photography show will be starting soon at the Guild of Creative Arts, in Shrewsbury. The reception is on March 5th from 3 to 5 pm. Three of my images will be included--seems like yesterday that none were accepted, so I must be making progress. The works are "Shy pelican," "Alcatraz," and "Into the mist." All are black and white, and each is totally different from the other. If you are on Route 35 in Shrewsbury, you should stop by and see the show.
Well, that takes me though the next month. There are more shows after these, including the one I wrote about last time with Karen Pomeroy, and then pretty soon the art festivals--and the more active shoot season will begin. Oh boy!! Wish me luck!!
