As there are less than two weeks remaining in my term as Photography Artist in Residence here at The Bascom (thebascom.org), I find myself reflecting on the events of the past year.
I am privileged to have been selected for this position by Billy Love, Director of Education and Outreach. I have been afforded opportunities at The Bascom I would not have had otherwise.
I have documented events here, done some teaching, but a large portion of my time was encouraged to be in the realm of personal creativity and exhibition.
Within two weeks of arriving, I was given a solo exhibition, Daufuskie Days, at Sotheby’s. In February I had a collaborative exhibition with Grant Benoit, then Community Outreach Resident. On the very heels of this exhibition followed another solo exhibition, The Life of Trees, and I am finishing up with the solo exhibition, A Walk in the Woods (reception September 19th at 5:30 pm). My life here has been a whirlwind of activity!
With the support of those at the Bascom – Billy Love, Teresa Osborne, the cadre of surrounding artists and the wonderful staff – I was provided the time, space and place to grow both personally and professionally. Words being inadequate, I humbly say “Thanks”.
