Just before Thanksgiving I met with Chuck Feil of the Panterra Gallery in Bisbee Arizona to discuss my photography portfolio. It was a great meeting - Chuck and I instantly hit it off. Great guy, with a fantastic, classy art gallery! I'm very happy to announce that my work is now hanging in his upscale gallery, along side many varied and talented artists.
Chuck along with Maralyce Ferree own the gallery - Maragni is the gallery manager, she's very knowlegable and always happy to help. Chuck is a photographer too, with an interesting background. He's traveled the world and has published 11 books of his work. Jane Goodall sought him out to make wildlife films on the Serengeti Plains of East Africa. Maralyce is a clothing designer from New York - her creative designs can also be seen at the gallery.
If you haven't visited Bisbee before (southeast of Tucson) it's an interesting historic town full of great restaurants, boutique hotels, galleries and shops - a perfect weekend get-away destination. Of course you should definately stop in at Panterra Gallery.
Recently I was notified that one of my images, "Taos Teepee," received an Honorable Mention in the "Landmark" category of the New Mexico Magazine 9th Annual Photography Contest. It will be published in the January 2010 edition (Volumn 88, Issue 1). Approximately 1500 images were submitted by 357 photographers from New Mexico plus 35 other states and 3 foreign countries. I am both excited and honored to have been chosen from so many entries and look forward to seeing the magazine next month.
