Madison, Wisconsin is going to be the place to be in the Midwest in the coming next few weeks, it seems. Not only is the SPE (Society of Photographic Educators) Midwest Conference being held there but there’s also the Wisconsin Book Festival and the FlakPhoto Midwest Print Show, curated by Andy Adams of FlakPhoto. I’m very grateful to Andy for selecting one of my platinum prints for inclusion in the show which showcases the work of 42 photographers from 9 states.
There will be plenty of photography in Madison with shows at the MMoCA, the Madison BUBBLER Gallery, the James Watrous Gallery, and at Overture Center for the Arts. The FlakPhoto show will be held at the Diane Endres Ballweg Gallery at the Central Library on W. Mifflin Street with the opening reception on Friday September 26th. The show runs for 5 weeks – throughout SPE – until October 30th.
“Most of what we do is in the online space, but I’ve been thinking a lot lately about prints and how vital they are for we who love photography. There is an incredible amount of photographic talent here in the American Midwest and I’m thrilled to present some of these printed works in Wisconsin this fall.” — Andy Adams.
