The Hallway Gallery & New Visions Studio and Gallery

I have two exhibitions up for the month of March.. The first one is a group polaroid show at The Hallway gallery in Jamaica Plain running from March 3-31. This show features the work of five artists who have all used the polaroid in different ways to create images. The work I have in this show is made in similar ways to the piece that you purchased. My work will be featured along side two good friends of mine, Ariele Baragona and Lindsay Metivier.

Lindsay Metivier also just opened up her own gallery/boutique in Jamaica Plain called Aviary, which is a half block away from The Hallway Gallery. They will have a permanent selection of photography books where I will have two of my hand made artist books for sale. These are two new books of mine that I have worked on for a while so I am excited to have them on display.

The second show I have is a big solo show at the New Visions Studio and Gallery, in Scranton PA from March 10th to April 5th, with the opening reception on Friday, March 11th 6-9 pm. They are a new gallery/darkroom and workshop space that a fellow classmate from MassArt opened up after graduation. This will be my biggest show yet, showcasing over thirty framed pieces. The exhibition, which is called Organic Darkroom, will consist of photograms, unique c-prints, polagrams and other darkroom/camera-less photography.

Check them out if your in either area.

Hi John! I got to check out your work at New Visions. I wanted to tell you that I was really impressed with your C-prints and books. The C-prints are visually appealing - bold and sensual (especially the fruits)- and sparked by curiosity. They provide a unique, artistic look at the mundane- which I happen to try to achieve in my work. Congrats on a fantastic show!
