One of the things we do each year (and this is year 18!) is to support the Newburyport Art Association’s Annual Art Auction. We photograph the auction artwork and design and build a dedicated website to showcase the work and support ticket sales. Proceeds of the auction support NAA shows, education, and operations. It’s a great event and a good party. Check out the artwork and buy your tickets ASAP if you’re planning to attend. It sells out every year!
Just back from a photography assignment in China with Gavin Johnston founder of Stone Curators. First stop was the international Xiamen Stone Fair trade show then off to a reclaimed stone yard, a stone block yard, a finished stone sales warehouse, a carving city, an ancient city and an incredible ancient stone bridge. We stayed in ultra modern accommodations in Xiamen. The trip was a fascinating mix of ancient and modern elements.
The scale of stone related operations in China is not to be believed. Incredible. You can see a few photos here.
Every few years I get a call from City Hall to photograph our Newburyport, MA City Council. The photographs are on a wall of the Council Chamber and serve to remind us of those who have given their time and energy to city service. Congratulations and thanks to all!
