Looking forward to my upcoming show with photographer Roger Young at the Cambridge Centre for the Arts, which opens on July 24th. For 5 years now Roger and I have been exploring the local landscape searching for inspiration for our art. What we find is expressed in our own unique way, often with surprising results. The tobacco kiln's pictured on the invitation is a good example of the unique vision we each have on the same place. There will also be many new works that have not been exhibited before.
