Print, frame, ship and assist in installing a traveling exhibition of approximately 30 photographs of the St. Croix River Watershed to five venues. I will also work on promotion of the exhibition, and conduct at least two photography lectures/workshops, and many gallery talks to the public during the exhibition tour. Exhibiting in venues such as are this tour is an important part of fulfilling my role as an artist, and building my reputation. The measurable outcome is that my exhibition gets produced and toured. I have a track record of exhibiting successfully, including at the Minnesota Marine Art Museum.
I printed, had framed and exhibited over 40 photographs. Exhibition venues included: Mill City Museum, Minneapolis, MN; CHARAC Art Center, Hayward, WI; Weiss Library, Hayward, WI; The Phipps Center for the Arts, Hudson, WI; Minnesota Marine Art Museum, Winona, MN; Stillwater Public Library, Stillwater, MN; Judd Street Exchange, Marine on St. Croix, MN; Watershed Gallery within National Eagle Center, Wabasha, MN; Grand Marais Art Colony, Grand Marais, MN, will show at White Bear Lake Art Center, WBL, MN summer 2019. In addition, I put on two photography workshops, and did dozens of programs based upon this work throughout the St. Croix Watershed. Segments of the work were also shown on Twin Cities Public Television as part of their pledge drive. I did many interviews on TV, radio and newspapers, with major coverage in Minneapolis Star Tribune and St. Paul Pioneer Press. Later this month I will present the keynote speech for "Spring Break" for the Twin Cities Area Camera Clubs, much of the presentation from this project.
