“Forgotten” and “Smooth Ride” selected for “ROAD” Exhibit – Exhibit Opens October 19th in Asheville, NC

But what is “ROAD?”  “ROAD” is a photo competition and exhibition that was judged and curated by William M.Hunt, a well-known collector, curator and consultant based in New York City.  Mr. Hunt had the task of reviewing more than 600 works from artists from around the U.S. and as far away as Italy and South Korea.  Ultimately, Mr. Hunt selected images which fit a very specific curatorial vision and I have been honored to have two of my images selected for this exhibit, “Forgotten” and “Smooth Ride.”  This exhibit opens Friday, October 19th with a reception from 6-8 p.m. at the Castell Photography Gallery in downtown Asheville.  Mr. Hunt will also be giving a talk on his ROAD selections during this reception.  Be sure to mark your calendar and join me for this reception.  The exhibit will run through November 28.

“Forgotten” – 1950 Chevrolet

“Smooth Ride” – Cadillac (Unknown Year)
