Happy New Year!To work off those extra holiday calories, I hit the ground running in 2017 with a flurry of activities. The first quarter is filled with a lot of great opportunities to enjoy fine art photographs from Photo LA fair, that also kicks off the Month of Photography LA… to my first curatorial effort! There are also Open Show presentations, a book exhibit, and plans are underway for a soft opening of my exhibit at Groundwork Coffee in Venice.
I hope to see you at some of these great venues!
