Hi, 2012 was a busy and productive year, so I took the opportunity over the winter to hibernate. Now, I’m starting to work on some new things and apply to shows. Thanks for your interest and stay tuned for new work and updates in 2013. - Angela

November is starting to look like a pretty big month with photos in several shows in addition to writing and editing work on the FotoWeek blog.
This double-exposure of the beach taken in May was selected for Upheaval, Target Gallery’s FotoWeek exhibit, from November 3 to December 2, 2012. The opening reception is on November 8 from 6 to 8 p.m.
FotoWeek just announced the winners of the 2012 competition and a Polaroid I shot in 2011 at Sandy Point State Park in Maryland placed 3rd in the Modern Vintage category!
Adah Rose Gallery will host a pop-up exhibit featuring photography from a diverse group of artists, including myself, during the FotoWeek festival. Stop by the Groovy Pop Up at Kate’s, party of the gallery’s Art Travels series, on the evenings of November 13 and 14 from 7 to 9:30 p.m.
Plus, I will be donating a photo for Metro DC Arts for Arthritis Gala, an art auction benefiting the Arthritis Foundation, on November 17 at the Ritz Carlton in Washington, D.C.
That’s all for now. I hope to see you at some of the openings!

Yesterday I installed new work in one of my favorite summer shows, DC Art Center’s Wall Mountables. I am showing work from my Seaside series, which includes progressions of waves forming, cresting, and crashing, as well as Seaside Flipside, a series of photos made using multiple exposures. My original presentation idea for this show did not work out as planned and, as a result, the work on view are unframed “test prints” that are not printed from the negative using traditional darkroom processes as I normally do.
Wall Mountables opens with a reception on Friday, July 20, from 7 to 9 p.m. and is on view through August 25.
Thanks to the power outages from last month’s derecho, the Art Libs opening reception was rescheduled for Saturday, July 21, from 3 to 5 p.m. Still unsure about the show’s concept? Read about curator Sherill Anne Gross’ inspiration for the exhibit in Montgomery County Sentinel’s article, Viewers, Artists Create Storyline in ‘ART LIBS’ Exhibit.

On Wednesday, June 20 at 8 p.m., I will be doing a film developing demo in Artomatic’s Renwick Alliance Room on the 11th Floor. I will develop a roll of film and explain the science behind all the steps (some I only recently learned, myself, preparing for this!). But, don’t worry - it won’t be too nerdy or hurt your brain. This demo is for anyone interested in learning how to develop their own traditional black and white film, anyone who has no concept of what’s involved, those who already do it regularly, or anyone who wants something fun to do this Wednesday. Oh, did I mention it’s FREE? AND, I’ll have a basic supplies list and protocol to help get you started at home. I hope to see you there!

Thanks to Adah Rose Gallery, I have a collection of 12 black and white Polaroids on view at Sub Urban Trading Company in Kensington, Maryland, for the month of April. The work ranges from solitary abstract-like images to diptychs and triptychs of summery scenes, and is the first time my work has been shown on its own by a gallery.

My photo of The Flood Zone was selected for 12 12 Gallery’s Richmond Juried Photography Exhibition which opens with a reception on Sunday, February 26.
The Flood Zone, now called something else, was an old tobacco warehouse on 18th Street in Shockoe Bottom where I saw bands like Social Distortion, GWAR, Reverend Horton Heat, Ned’s Atomic Dustbin, Jimmy Cliff, Dave Matthews Band and others in the early to mid ’90s.
