I considered myself in good company when Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition notified me my work was declined for last year’s Wide Open 7 exhibition. After all, only a small percentage of hundreds of works were juried into the show. This year, I am beyond thrilled to have Yosemite At Work accepted (!!) into the BWAC Wide Open 8 exhibition, by juror, Cara Manes, Assistant Curator in the Department of Painting and Sculpture at The Museum of Modern Art.
There is nothing like afternoon sun coming through the trees on a hike out to Sentinel Dome and Taft Point. In front of the split boulder, new trees are coming up out of fallen, decaying logs on the forest floor. This was possibly my favorite hike the first time we visited Yosemite National Park. The easy path, with no one else walking through the woods at the time, was quiet and remarkable.
Yosemite At Work is one of 120 pieces juried into the exhibition out of 1,513 submissions. You can learn more about BWAC Wide Open here.
