CAG Gallery Members Exhibition 2016
I’m thrilled that my work is currently being displayed at the CAG Gallery Members Exhibition 2016, and that the Limited Edition photograph I entered, “Union of Spirit”, received a recognition award! You can view it along with all of the other amazing artwork if you have a chance to stop by before February 6.
“Union of Spirit” in the making
“Union of Spirit” is a very special photograph of a family of Great Egrets that was in the making for four+ months while I observed the mother sitting on the nest waiting for her eggs to hatch; watching the young chicks grow; and then, very infrequently, seeing the parents together with the chicks. Hundreds of days and shots later, it was an exciting moment when the male (father) flew up to the nest, and the whole family interacted together. You can see the anticipation and excitement between the parents and the chicks. It’s amazing that they just know they are a family, and each parent knows how to care for their young in their own way—they’re not told what to do—they just know.
“Union of Spirit” is a Limited Edition, which is currently on its Ninth Edition. The piece in the Exhibition is Edition No. 4–this edition was set aside for showing because it has a special framing treatment.
