2015 Art Competition Exhibit: Discovering the Native Landscapes of Maryland’s Eastern Shore


This week, I’ll be traveling to Adkins Arboretum, to drop off Autumn, Tuckahoe Creek for inclusion in the 2015 Art Competition Exhibit. This exhibit was juried by Christine Neil, faculty at the Maryland Institute College of Art; and features work inspired by the native landscapes of Maryland’s Eastern Shore. The exhibit will be on view at Adkins Arboretum from February 3-March 27, 2015; with a reception on Saturday, February 14, from 3-5 pm. For more information, visit the Adkins Arboretum website, or call 410-634-2847.

Autumn, Tuckahoe Creek was shot on a late afternoon visit to Adkins Arboretum in early November, as I walked along the North Tuckahoe Valley Trail. Adkins Arboretum, a 400-acre native garden and preserve, promotes the conservation and restoration of the Chesapeake Bay region’s native landscapes. Over the years, Adkins Arboretum’s quiet beauty has inspired some of by best work. I shot Autumn, Tuckahoe Creek with my favorite camera-replacement app, Pro Camera 8. Post-processing was done with the apps SnapSeed, Distressed FX and AutoStitch. The archival pigment print was printed on Hahnemuhle Bamboo paper, and is 32.5 x 17″.
