I attended the Ohio Museums Association conference in Toledo, Ohio. The conference location rotates to each corner of the state and the center, Columbus. This year, it just happened to be local for me. I am happy I was able to attend and feel like I am hitting the ground running with preparations to open my art gallery soon. I am busy doing the behind-the-scenes work for my gallery while I exercise patience as the renovation projects get done.

The highlight of the 2017 SPE, National Conference for me was Jerry Uelsmann’s
keynote presentation. It was awesome when I happened on him in the corridor and we had a good talk and shot some pictures. My first college photo teacher (1991) was Arthur Bacon, who studied under Uelsmann during his MFA program. I figure that in this regard, Uelsmann is like my grandfather in my photo education family.
It’s always nice to connect with friends I’ve made over the years through SPE. I did that, as well as met some new people. I participated in the professional portfolio reviews and showed some of my photographs during the curator portfolio walkthru. I also networked with talented artists to potentially exhibit their work in my gallery, once the renovations are complete.
After the conference, I hopped on a plane to visit some friends who recently built a house in Cape Coral, Florida. I fell in love with palm trees again. We explored the area and I made pictures, of course.
