War and Peace

Journal Entry: Sat Jun 20, 2015, 6:07 PM
One of my photos was accepted into the juried exhibition, War and Peace, at the Darkroom Gallery in Essex Junction, Vermont, USA. The show goes from July 23 to August 7. www.darkroomgallery.com/ex71  The juror is Nissan N. Perez, Vice President of  the Shpilman Institute for Photography (SIP) in Tel Aviv.  He was  the Senior Curator of Photography at the Israel Museum, Jerusalem, for 37 years,  where he conceived and created the department of photography and its extensive collection of over 120,000 items.  In his curatorial career he conceived and curated over 180 exhibitions in Israel and Worldwide and published a substantial number of books, catalogs and articles.  In addition Perez currently teaches graduate courses and seminars at the Hebrew University, Jerusalem, The Ben Gourion University of the Negev, Beer Sheva, and at the Universitat Politècnica de València, Spain. Also, he worked for many years as a professional photographer specializing in advertising and public relations while also devoting time to personal creative photography.


In addition, because my work has been accepted to a number of exhibitions at the Darkroom Gallery, I am now considered a Darkroom Gallery Master Photographer.

Here is the photo:  (Unfortunately, my deviation is in storage and DA hasn't figured out how to fix the 'unstore' feature yet.)

Outstanding Peggy!! Congratulations..that's quite an honor!
I love your shot 'Distress Signal' - it reminds me of the demonstrations here at the U of M back in the 60's - & 70's.

I was among the classmates that had two teachers that made our high school experience worth while .
They themselves were 'counterculture'. They taught us to question authority and never settle for
the status quo. Demonstrating against Vietnam was number one for me.
