Arts in Harmony 2010

Each year Elk River Area Arts Alliance host the Arts in Harmony art show. This show is the largest national juried art show in Minnesota and last year gave away $10,000 in prize money. This year 259 artists submitted 722 works of which 204 were selected for the show. For the 5th year in a row I've been honored by having my photography in the show.

'Hollow Rock Morning' is this years participant in the show. It was made at Hollow Rock Resort by Grand Portage, Minnesota on March 21, 2009. This was my first time photographing the North Shore of Minnesota in winter. The worst of winter had passed and the open water of Lake Superior was slowly overtaking the ice. An interesting pattern of snow had formed on the ice in front of Hollow Rock while Hollow Rock was still covered with ice. It all came together with the moody morning clouds.

If you're in the Twin Cities ares you're invited to the Artists Reception to be held on Sunday Feb. 14, 2010 at the Sherburne County Government Center in Elk River, Minnesota. This is really an excellent show featuring a cross section of artistic media including, photography, oil painting, watercolors, sculptures, pottery, drawings, etc. It would be nice to see you there.
