The exhibition is a celebration of life as well as the beauty of age and decay. The public is invited to the free artist reception on Friday, February 1at 6pm located inside the gallery located at 139 South Elm Street in Keller, Texas.

As a Hurst resident, finding opportunities to present my art locally to my neighbors is a rare occurrence. So I’m pleased to announce that my award-winning photography will be featured in my first ever solo exhibition “Life in Frame” inside the Hurst Public Library’s gallery. The free art exhibition will be on view during the library’s regular business hours from November 2nd through November 29th. [Please check with the library directly for any changes in their hours around the Thanksgiving holiday].
I’ve created a public Facebook Event so you can share across social media, as well as mark your FB calendar as interested or going with all the relevant details:
I’m pleased to announce that some of my photographic work (selections from my long exposure carnival ride series) will be on display in the “100 For 100” Exhibition at Fort Works Art Gallery located at 2100 Montgomery Street in Fort Worth, Texas. The show will run from October 27 through November 10.
Tickets to the Opening Day reception party (Oct. 27 from noon to 9pm) will be $10, with all proceeds going toward the non-profit organization Gallery Of Dreams to support future exhibition opportunities and events for local artists. The remaining days of the exhibition are free and open to the public to view during normal gallery hours.
This year’s Western Trappings on the Llano, which is a juried, international exhibit and sale featuring the finest in custom Gear and original Western Art has been postponed.
As I’m sure many of you are aware, the flooding in Llano and neighboring communities in the Texas Hillcountry has made national news. The Llano River which cuts right through the heart of the town of Llano experienced a historic crest of more than 40 feet above normal.
To give you an idea of what that looks like this image combines a screencap from footage broadcasted on the news, and the an image I found from a news article of the bridge during normal conditions (with a person in it to help provide a sense of scale).
The museum hosting Western Trappings on the Llano is located at the end of the bridge. The below image was shared to me on Facebook from a local. The photo was taken from the museum parking lot, and we can see that the museum grounds were flooding. It damaged the log cabin on site, but the main Museum building was just a tad higher and has managed to stay dry, though the flooded river water was lapping within reach of the foundation. In fact the sidewalk leading to the museum is just to the right of the structure visible on the right hand edge of the image.
While the exhibit has already been hung in anticipation of the original reception and exhibit dates, due to the flooding everything has been pushed back 2 weeks to allow roads to be cleared, bridges inspected for damage, and to help the city get back up and running as they deal with the aftermath of all that water.
The new dates for Western Trappings on the Llano, held inside the Llano County Historical Museum located at 310 Bessemer Street in Llano, Texas are as follows:
- Artist Reception (ticket required) on November 2nd at 5:30pm
- Art Exhibit runs from November 3 through November 17
