Get Out There: One of My Images Featured in a Traveling Exhibit

Want to see one of my images up close and personal? Here's hoping a traveling photography exhibit featuring one of my pics will reach a city near you next year.



My image above, "The Allure of Water," was chosen as one of 12 assignment winners from 2007/2008 and will be featured in a traveling exhibition beginning February 2009 in 11 of the museums and art galleries where Digital Photo Academy classes were held.

If you remember, I took two DPA classes with Highlands Ranch-based photographer Russ Burden, whose guest "Instructor's Tips" run on my blog on Mondays. Each month, DPA students and others submitted photos for various topics and a winner was chosen. Now, the 12 assignment winners will be featured in the exhibition running across the 20 participating cities where the DPA host photography workshops, including: ATLANTA, BOSTON, CHICAGO, CLEVELAND, DALLAS, DENVER (my home town), DETROIT, HOUSTON, LOS ANGELES, MIAMI, MINNEAPOLIS, NEW YORK, ORLANDO, PHILADELPHIA, PHOENIX, SAN DIEGO, SAN FRANCISCO, SEATTLE, TAMPA and WASHINGTON, D.C.

Congratulations to all the winners and their images (check them out here), especially Jean Hayes who took top honors as "the overall monthly assignment winner," with her fabulous image seen below.
