Curatorial statement:
According to the most common definition, the word ‘essential’ is referred to something “extremely necessary, important, and fundamental”. A person we need to keep in our life, a memory we would like to preserve in our mind, an emotion we would love to feel forever. A constant variable in everyone’s life. Again, the tendency of minimising emotions, situations, people. The conscious decision of separating what is important from what is not.

The group exhibition offers an interpretation of the theme "The Essential", in which to emerge is the ability of each author to grasp aspects of life that contain the most significant values of existence, those individual and / or universal.

I'm thrilled to announce the opening reception for To Do, To Undergo, To Look, a group exhibition I co-curated for the SE Center for Photography. The exhibition includes the work of eight emerging artists from the Upstate of South Carolina. The exhibition opens on Friday, December 7 and an artist discussion will be held on Saturday, December 8 at 11:00 am.

This month I've had the immense pleasure of serving as a juror for the 2019 Artisphere, an annual Fine Arts festival in Greenville, SC. The competition was steep as the juror panel reviewed over 900 submissions.
