Out with 2017, in with 2018.......
December 31, 2017 • Leave a Comment
I have just looked over my blog posts from 2017, and it is hard to believe that a year has gone by so quickly! As I anticipated, it was a busy year for my photography--one solo show, one show with my pal Karen Pomeroy, and curating two shows, one at the OCAG for the members of TRAC and one at the Grunin Center for the Arts, also for TRAC. This is while also participating in several shows at Belmar Arts, the Guild of Creative Arts, the TRAC Gallery, and the Ocean County Artists Guild, plus posting regularly on Facebook and Instagram, and shooting whenever possible--Whew! I am tired just thinking about all this!
I anticipate that 2018 will be just as busy as 2017. Although I have no shows in the pipeline that are either solo or curated by me, I expect to take as many photographs as ever and I will be participating in the same number of shows, exhibits, events, etc., if not a few more. I know I will have more opportunities to go on shoots, thanks in large part to joining with a group of excellent, awesomely-talented photographers know as the Black Glass Gallery. The group is based in Asbury Park, but it is much more than folks from that location (indeed, the members are from all over Jersey)--it is a fantastic group of people who go to the most interesting places within 100 miles of the city and take the most amazing photographs. According to several people, my work has gotten markedly better since I joined the group--and I am deeply thankful for that. Photographically and personally, my joining the group was one of the highlights of 2017 for me. I am greatly looking forward to the adventures that 2018 brings with the group, and the trips I undertake on my own. My wife and I have a nice long trip planned for next Summer and my camera is certain to along for the ride.
Anyway, as 2017 winds down, let me wish all the happiest New Year and best wishes for a healthy and prosperous 2018. Whatever your passion, I hope you are able to enjoy it and that it inspires and fulfills you during the coming months. If you are a photographer, happy shooting!!
