Exhibition Opening Reception Friday May 5, 5-8 pm, Outpost, 119 E. 3rd St., Winona, MN 55987

Please join me for the opening reception of the exhibition “Winona Characters: Portrait Photography Exhibition” On Friday May 5th, 5 to 8 pm and Art of the Rural’s Outpost in downtown Winona.

After 6 rounds of of public portrait shoots, I have captured 145 portraits of Winona “characters.” I now began the long and difficult process of selecting 40 images to exhibit in the gallery space. There is limited wall space and frames for the exhibition, so I must select a limited number of images. As a consolation to those not included in the final 40 prints, all 145 portraits will be on a video loop in the gallery and on a large montage print with all portraits.

I would like to sincerely thank all of you who volunteered to model for this project. You are all a bunch of characters, unique, special, and beautiful in your own way.  Thank you for the leap of faith and trust in this project. See you at the opening reception!
