Update: gonna be one short for the show. The big guy, Winter has its ways will not be making an appearance. It’s all for the best, though.

Strange things are afoot at the Circle K.

Exciting things are happening this weekend. The M.T. Burton Gallery is hosting its first ever Summer Art Opener featuring eight local artists—including myself! Gulp.

This is a pretty big first for me. I’ve never shown my work. Hell, aside from a framed print I donated for a charity auction last summer, I’ve never even had prints ordered up before. Until now I’ve stuck purely to digital images posted online only. That’s been my comfort zone.

Now I’m out of it. I’m stepping into unchartered territory, and not without trepidation. I’ve got to be honest, were my friends Jeff Ruemeli (hand blown glass art) and Ben Wurst (reclaimed woodworking) not also participating there’s no way I’d have the courage to go through with this. Power in numbers and all that jazz.

As for the event, it’s going down this weekend June 6th–8th at the M.T. Burton Gallery in Surf City, New Jersey. If you’re out and about on Long Beach Island this weekend looking for something different to do, stop by and say hello. There’s activities planned for both Friday and Saturday evening—featuring live music, a clam bake, juggling, and more!

The gallery above represents the ten photographs I’ve selected for the show. Special and serious shout out to Ben Wurst who’s done all the custom reclaimed framing. The work looks spectacular and it wouldn’t be anywhere near as good without his splendid touch. Seriously man, thank you.

  1. […] time to post; I can use a bit of lift. Scheduling woes, chronic procrastination, and an upcoming art show have wrought the end of the rope for this guy. I’m a terrible multitasker to begin with and […]

    I remember my event and was quite nervous about how people would like my craft. Turns out it was all for nothing. Doing events and getting feedback from people in person is so much better than only getting likes and comments on Facebook. Wait till someone walks by and says “wow” or “amazing work!” It’ll make your day, if not year. Happy to help you out too. Old wood and your photography go together superbly.

    I’m so excited for you, you have no idea. I’m so glad you’re doing this and can’t wait to see all of the pictures in person.
