Tall Ship in MFA "Small Wonders" Show

...from a photographer's notebook

"Tall Ship, Chesapeake Bay" receives Honorable Mention in MFA "Small Wonders" Show
Over the summer, I renewed my affiliation with the Maryland Federation of Art, and have been honored to have two of my Chesapeake Bay images selected for recent MFA exhibits at the Circle Gallery in Annapolis, Maryland.

In August, one of my recent photographs of the Bay Bridge, "Chesapeake Bay Bridge No.4" was selected for inclusion in the MFA "American Landscapes" Show.

"Tall Ship, Chesapeake Bay" actually began life as an Ektachrome transparency, but I came to feel the motif was better realized in a toned black and white rendition.

Linda Simmons, curator Corcoran College of Art, selected 113 small works in several media, all of which are 11" or less on their longest dimension (mine measures 8x10 inch framed size), so lots of nice holiday gift ideas. The show is on view through December 29 at the Circle Gallery on State Circle, just across from the Maryland State House.

The MFA has created an attractive on-line gallery, which includes a convenient purchase-on-line feature. The accepted artists and their works are in alphabetical order. You can find "Tall Ship" at No.31. Click on the image to see it full screen.

"Tall Ship, Chesapeake Bay" can also be ordered in larger prints by contacting me directly.

And speaking of tall ships on the Bay, a reminder that "On the Chesapeake," an impression from the same afternoon on the Bay is available in gallery prints and as a custom printed note card on Crane Museo art stock.

If you'd like to see it in higher definition, please follow this link to its page on Foto-Community. 

A small print will also be on display through December at the Art League Gallery in Alexandria.

Beautiful shots Steve. I see Romania's Mircea barque in the background of the second one.
Here’s a great list of tall ships, it includes their profiles and many of the races they’ve been in.
