I'm off to London and New Delhi today for my work with Art Fraud Insights, LLC. I am excited to have an opportunity to see some incredible art in London and explore Delhi for the first time in between our meetings and work. You can follow me along on my Instagram as I'll be posting as I go along. 

I am sad to miss the launch of Washington Studio School's What If... kick-off and party on Sunday October 30th from 4-6pm. As a member of the Board of Directors I have been participating in the What If... challenge, of doing something creative everyday. I hope you will attend and get to know this wonderful institution and community I am happy to be a part of. 

I will return on Friday November 4, just in time to celebrate FotoWeekDC and attend the opening of the exhibition I had the honor of Jurying at Hillyer Art Space.  The exhibition, FORMAT features artists living across the United States, showing how diverse the medium of photography is, and how many different ways the photography can not only interact with its subject, but also its future audience. 

Opening Friday November 4, 6-9pm | On view through December 18, 2016.

Later in the month, I will be participating in a wonderful panel, How Photography Influences Cross-Cultural Dialogue alongside O. Louis Mazzatenta, Amalia Pizzardi, and Christine Neptune on Thursday November 17, from 6:30-8:30pm as part of the FotoDC Festivities. RSVP here

On Saturday November 19, I will lead a DIY Digital Pinhole Workshop at Hillyer Art Space from 9:30am - 12pm. The workshop will allow attendees to create modern pinhole cameras, treating our cameras in an analog fashion inspired by the roots of photography and traditional practices, including: how to look at light, frame your subject and how this practice can inspire us to wait for the ‘decisive moment.’ Space is limited to 15 people. Those attending will need to bring their own digital SLR camera, (and tripod and shutter remote if they want but not required). Any photographs taken will not be developed/printed during this workshop. RSVP here

Looking forward to a wonderful few weeks ahead and hope to see you at some of the events!
