I try to submit regularly to art exhibitions and calls for entry. It keeps me on point and gives me an outlet for my fine art work. I received notification from the Artists' Cooperative Gallery of Westerly that both of my entries, "Foam Edge" and "Galilee Panoramic #1" were accepted into their upcoming Regional Art Exhibit, which is held annually:
It was just about this time last year that I was accepted into my first juried art exhibition outside of competitions held at college. I packed up two prints and headed over to Newburyport Art Assoc. in Newburyport, MA, for their
annual juried regional exhibit! It was exciting for me, kind of a college send-off "Here I am professional fine art world!" kind of experience. And here we are, a year later, plenty of new work to promote and build upon, and I've been accepted into another regional art exhibit here in coastal New England.
The opening will be held at the Artists' Cooperative Gallery of Westerly, located at 7 Canal St., Westerly, RI, this Wednesday May 2nd, from 5-8pm. For more information about ACGOW and their upcoming events feel free to visit their Events webpage
. I hope to see some of you there! Also coming up I will be attending LINKS Ladies Night Out fundraiser event here in North Kingstown on Thursday May 3rd, 6:30pm at the Quonset 'O' Club. More information about that event is here
. Should be two fun nights in a row!

I had been eagerly awaiting this winter season. Here in New England, the winter months can be rather frigid, but for those of us who don’t mind the exhaustive work of climbing into 6 mil wetsuits or ice-cream-headache cold waters, it’s the eagerly anticipated winter months that bring the biggest swells. We had snow before the New Year and water temps quickly started approaching 40°F. But in typical fashion, as soon as the long awaited winter months arrived, I was craving a break from the cold gray in favor of a warm water reprieve.
I've been wanting to shoot more portraits lately, but in combination with the surf community that I've been so involved with the past year. My good friend, Kevin Tanner, behind Soudnings Surf Co creates some gorgeous handcrafted boards. He does all his own shaping, resin work, and glassing, and I wanted to photograph some beautiful boards to highlight his craftsmanship as well as portraits of my friends who ride them. I decided to do board portraits.
A lot of us enjoy the warm weather, but a select few of us still enjoy (or perhaps tolerate) the cold weather. And nothing quite says winter like a fresh snowfall! On the rare occasion Rhode Island experiences more than one inch of snow while there's swell in the water, you can find a select few of dedicated riders on the shore eager to have a snow session.
