I’m pleased to be included in the exhibition Color at the Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition in, well, Brooklyn, NY. BWAC says that Conservatoire des Ocres #1 is one of 118 pieces of art to be selected out of 1,224 submissions in all mediums. The image is 14"x21" on 24"x30" paper.
The show opens July 28 and runs through August 23 at BWAC’s gallery in the Red Hook section of Brooklyn so if you’re in New York (and I wish I could be) take a gander.
Red Hook, a gritty neighborhood of South Brooklyn, was the setting for 1954's On the Waterfront, is where the Queen Mary II now docks and has been dubbed "resindustrial" for its robust mix of lofts, galleries and industry. That'll be on the quiz.

Then a design firm in Vancouver emailed about an image called "Wagon Rut." The agency's owner said she had Googled for images of, well, Wagon Ruts and after drilling very deep came up with the one below which, get this, was taken on US 285. You can't make this stuff up.
Turns out that I have a substantial portfolio of photographs taken along 285’s diagonal path from Texas to Colorado. Could this be the theme of a show or book?
Next week more postcards from 285 or not.
