The Year in Review - So Far in Installation

Working on my website with installation shots of the year's exhibits, I realize that I have been in exhibits averaging one per month since January.  Plus other awards and good news, it has been a good and busy almost 1/2 year.  More to come on acitivities soon in my periodic email news report but, thought it would be nice to post the installation pictures right now.

January 2012: starting off with 'ROUND THE CLOCK: CHINESE AMERICAN ARTISTS WORKING IN LOS ANGELES at the Vincent Price Art Museum at East Los Angeles College, a Getty sponsored Pacific Standard Time Exhibtion.   The beautiful and important exhibit by independant curator, Sonia Mak, bringing into the well-deserved spotlight these fine artists, lessor known possibly because of their ethnicity, but known within important artist circles, who worked commercially but showed spectacularly.

I was privileged to have included my photographs (in a print and a photo flipbook) of Tyrus Wong in his retirement, flying his amazing handmade kites for the past 30 years at the beach.

February2012: At Morono Kiang Gallery, Los Angeles Downtown, curated by Shervin Shahbazi:  FAR AWAY, SO CLOSE.  Photographs by LA Artists of Los Angeles in the l980s.

MARCH 2012: Along with occasional artist collaborator, Martin Cox, our project WEST COAST/WEST COAST was exhibited along with other international artists at the Western Australia photo biennial in Perth, FOTO FREO in the DIVERGENCE exhibit at Midland Atelier .

MAY2012:  LOOKING GLASS, my first ever exhibition of work from my DETROIT: DEFINITION project, included in an exhibit curated by Shana Nys Dambrot at the Analog Salon, Culver City.

MAY2012:  Chosen in a juried competition and exhibited at the annual AIA National Convention in DC, my photograph of the 747 Wing House, representing one of the "Best of the Year: ASMP/Architecture."
