Webster Arts Exhibit

Webster Arts Exhibit


Relationships, the theme at Webster Arts received nearly 600 submissions. Juror Alison Erazmus selected 64 pieces that reflect the depth and diversity of our relationships. My in-camera overlay, ’Juniper’s Last Gasp’ made into the show held at Webster Grove in Missouri.

This is an in-camera overlay abstract of two images. One is a dead Juniper tree, and the other is a photo of compacted recycled materials at a landfill facility I visited. Juniper trees thrive in the most inhospitable conditions. Juniper will withstand bone-chilling cold temperatures, scorching heat, intense winds, and with very little water. Junipers have a lifespan between 350 to 700 years. Enduring all challenges, even the indomitable Juniper will perish if we pollute indiscriminately. Protect our environment, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!

There are two galleries: one is a slideshow gallery and one is a virtual gallery on Exhibbit. Click on the link to see all selected works. Visit the artworks on Webster Arts Website. 

Dendritic Passage at Hilliard Gallery

Dendritic Passage at Hilliard Gallery


Dendritic Passage has been selected in three different galleries in Colorado, Maryland, and the State of Missouri. This photo was shown at Hilliard Gallery, voted the top as one of the best galleries in the State of Missouri as well as one of the top 25 galleries in the United States by The American Art Awards. 

Image Description: Dendritic Passage. A tree? Shadow of a tree? Dendritic patterns are the most common and widespread form on earth yet the most overlooked. Tree branches, roots, the geology of slope terrain, river channels, and more. This is a photo taken at a frozen pond where the autumn leaves fell to blend onto this drainage flow. We tend to overlook many things in life even when they are so obvious. I see these small details and want to capture them to share nature’s simplicity. what seems to be shadow-like is actually a drainage passage. Nature camouflage it well with the fall leaves thus the deceiving look. Art in nature that makes me look twice always finds a place in my work.

Location of Image: Gypsum, Colorado Type of Camera and Lens Used: Nikon D850 Camera Settings Used: f/2.8 -ISO 320 – f/2.8 – 1/500
