May 10 –August 2, 2019
After the Storm and Eau Claire River Frost are featured in the 24th annual juried exhibition "Water Works," at Gallery 110 North. Located in the Plymouth Arts Center, 520 E. Mill Street, Plymouth, the exhibition is on view from May 10 through August 2.
On the a late June evening, a series of passing storms created ideal conditions for a rainbow. I grabbed my camera and set out for my favorite post-storm spots.
Driving east of Wausau on Townline Road, a rainbow appeared, but quickly disappeared. As I reached "the" spot, the sun was setting in the western sky and there was a break in the clouds at the horizon.
I waited and watched. About twenty minutes later, the sun broke through and a small rainbow appeared at the southeast horizon; I took a couple shots. As the rainbow was fading, the real drama started. After the Storm is the result.

2019 Culture & Agriculture
Driftless Yellow Barns and Tunnelville Cliffs Barn will be featured in the 2019 "Culture & Agriculture." This New Visions Gallery juried exhibition, now in its 33rd year, is one of the most popular and well-attended.
"Culture & Agriculture" celebrates art that has in some way drawn inspiration from agriculture -- modern or historical. The exhibition opens dialogues about agriculture, how it has impacted our society, and how it will continue to shape us in the future.
Driftless Yellow Barns -- a classic scene -- was photographed after many trips to this location. Patiently waiting for fog to clear near Richland Center paid off.
Tunnelville Cliffs Barn was captured near the Tunnelville Cliffs State Natural Area, west of La Farge, in Wisconsin's Driftless Region.
New Visions Gallery is located at 1000 North Oak Avenue, Marshfield; "Culture & Agriculture" is on view from May 20 through July 26.

Wisconsin Visual Artists Small Works Juried Exhibition 2019
Lines and Another Time are featured in "WVA Small Works." This Wisconsin Visual Artists juried exhibition features works not exceeding 320 square inches - the equivalent of 16 x 20 inches - including the frame.
Lines was taken east of Egg Harbor in Door County. The pattern created by the split rail fence and parallel tree line appealed to my sense of design. The high contrast of the infrared black-and-white process enhanced the effect.
While photographing scenes in the Driftless, an Amish couple stopped to see if I had car trouble and needed help. After a pleasant conversation, I photographed Another Time as they drove away.
Richeson Gallery 557 Marcella St., Kimberly, WI hosts the exhibition from June 22 through August 10.
