Blackout

October 14, 2018

My photograph, "Clown God," above right, has been accepted in a national juried competition called "Blackout" at the Ashton Gallery in San Diego, CA.  The exhibition runs from October 27, 2018 to November 17, 2018.  The winning entries were selected from among 897 works of art by 324 artists. The juror was Daniel Foster, an arts administrator and former museum director, as well as a visual artist and poet.  My entry is based on the raw image, above left, taken shortly after sunrise on the grounds of Will Bill's Nostalgia Emporium in Middletown, CT .  Wild Bill's was the place to go if you wanted to photograph a 600-lb.clown head that ran up and down on a motorized track on top of a 33-foot brick silo.  Alas, the place has closed following the death of its owner.  "Clown God" was previously exhibited at the 1350 Gallery in Los Angeles and at Gallery 136-1/2 in Manchester CT.
