CSArt Program, Sharon Arts Center -- Update

The CSArt program at the Sharon Arts Center completed in January 2012 with the sale of 36 shares(against a goal of 50). My submission was a folio of five shell photographs that were previously described in a blog post in October '11. The folio cover is shown above and I am including the five images in the folio at the end of this blog entry. By most accounts the project was a success. I currently have 14 folios that I am trying to find a home for.

The Sharon Arts Center has published a call for a second CSArt program with the art delivery required starting in June. I have submitted an entry to this and am waiting for the selection announcement after May 1. I proposed a limited addition folio of five photographs of the New Hampshire landscape and plan to go ahead with producing this even if not selected.

Heald Tract Photographs

I recently acquired a new point and shoot camera, a Nikon Coolpix 510, and tried it out on a recent walk in the Heald Tract in Wilton, NH, using it as a sketching mechanism before bringing my 4x5 camera out in the field. The results of a couple of the photos were intriguing , see below. Certainly encouraging enough to motivate me to go further. After the rain stops in the next day or so I plan to bring the large camera to this area and see what can be done.
