Earlier this month I was a recipient of the a Gold Medal from the National Art Museum of Sport for their on going exhibit Commitment to Excellence in Art and Sport. This is a huge honor and the work in the show in general is amazing, let alone the fantastic work in the permanent collection. This honor will be accompanied by a reception at the NAMOS at IUPUI on January 20th.
So since I spent all last week working on Black and White PhotoWorkshop, which I finished the 8th chapter on Christmas day, I treated myself to a half day off and took Denzel and Dajon down to the NAMOS to check out the work and so Denzel could brag a little bit more about all the awards the photos of him have garnered. He was humbled just a bit when reminded that the photo of Dajon was currently on display in a gallery in London, via the London Photographic Association.
Thanks to Ann for taking the time for us, and it was great to spend an afternoon with two pretty great kids! I can't wait for them to get to come over to Dayton for the solo exhibition of the work at the DVAC. That project is virtually done as well... I need to redo 2 pieces, but I just finished the blow torch portion of the UV coating process of the last of these images.
