Off Center Art Center is happy to start 2014 with some inspiring work from three established Brevard county artists that deserve your attention! “A New Beginning” features Tom Busby, Rose Jefferson and Owen Tamburr with works selected by curator John Sluder. Come and enjoy this visual feast of innovative yet complimentary styles!
I’m thrilled to have been a part of Chris Maslow’s pop-up gallery and guerrilla art show that shook up the Melbourne Art Festival last weekend. It was an inspiring experience and I’m especially happy that some of my shown work has now found permanent new homes.
Stay tuned for an encore guerrilla art show pop-up very, very soon.
This week I’m honored to be included in a group of artists invited to show work at Pizza Gallery this month. (link) My “Vintage Catwoman” shoot with Kate Blankenship in January is featured at this show. The shoot took place at Foo Bar during business hours, causing quite a stir…..
Next up, don’t miss my solo artist showing at the Spellbound 1920’s event at Open Mike’s the evening of Saturday May 18th. (link)

21 & UP DRESS TO IMPRESS
The New York Times has launched a new Tumblr site called “The Lively Morgue” to breathe new life into items in the newspaper’s photo archive (nicknamed “The Morgue”). Each week they’ll be sharing several historical photographs found in massive collection. Just how massive?
We don’t know. Our best guess is five million to six million prints and contact sheets (each sheet, of course, representing many discrete images) and 300,000 sacks of negatives, ranging in format size from 35 millimeter to 5 by 7 inches — at least 10 million frames in all. The picture archive also includes 13,500 DVDs, each storing about 4.7 gigabytes worth of imagery. When the Museum of Modern Art set out to exhibit the highlights of the Times archive in 1996, it dispatched four curators. They spent nine months poring over 3,000 subjects, working with two Times editors, one of whom spent a year on the project. In the end, they estimated that they’d seen only one-quarter of the total. [#]
To make the project even more interesting, they’re also publishing an image of the reverse side of each print. This often reveals information such as how often the image was used, notes by the photographer, and the original caption that was chosen.
Writer and Oscar-winning documentary maker Errol Morris talks about the nature of truth, art and propaganda in photography. Drawing examples from the photographs of Abu Ghraib and the Crimean war, cited in his book Believing is Seeing, he argues we’ve often underplayed the link between photgraphs and the physical world
Sometimes I have to step back and get a laugh out of the photography industry, enjoy!!!
I was invited to shoot the event “A Taste of Tuscany!” for CPA Wealth Management Services. The event was an appreciation dinner for their clients. I was one of many vendors to help with the event. The evening had wonderful food, wine and live entertainment. The evening was topped off with Gelato, does not get any better!
Special Thanks to Jen LaRue & Leslie D. Carlson for all their hard work!
