My photograph entitled “Late Afternoon Railroad” has been accepted by Chestnut Review for inclusion in its Summer issue.
CR: “Starting a literary magazine is never a wise idea, really. But we’re a little bit stubborn. A little bit picky in what we want. And if we don’t see it, then we want to create it (another great American value!) […] Artists who persist despite rejection, the intrusions of real life, the bills that must be paid, the jobs that must be done before any art can be created. That’s the best kind of stubbornness.”
I have three works of minimalist black and white photography currently on display from April 27-30, 2023 at the Boston College Arts Festival in Robsham Theater.
About the Arts Festival:
“Annually on the last weekend in April, the Boston College Arts Festival brings the Boston College and surrounding communities together to celebrate the arts. From April 27-29, 2023, the 25th annual Arts Festival will once again invite the community to experience the variety of arts at Boston College!”
Over 16,000 visitors from Boston College and the surrounding community are expected to attend.
The online literary magazine Front Porch Review has accepted my black and white photograph Power for publication in the July timeframe.
According to the magazine’s founder, Glen Phillips, “Whatever its form, a front porch is where we, young and old, congregate; where we assemble, gather, mingle, congeal, where we get together. And once we’re there we speculate, pontificate, prevaricate, and expostulate; occasionally we speak words of universal truth.”
I was interviewed this past week by Brooke, one of the members of the BC Arts Council, for inclusion in a “Visual Arts Podcast” to be aired in conjunction with the Boston College Arts Festival, April 27-29, 2023.

“With over 16,000 visitors from Boston College and the surrounding community coming in attendance, the Arts Festival never fails to be one of the most vibrant and exciting events at Boston College. Students have the added bonus of relieving end-of-semester stress, while members of the surrounding communities are given the opportunity to delight in all forms of art, from the laugh-out-loud humor offered by comedy groups, to the transcendent beauty of the many dance ensembles, to the boldness of the studio art students’ work.
“Highlighted at the spring’s festival are the ‘BC’s Best’ competition, an Art Walk, and Dancing with bOp!. Other annual features include children’s activities, literary readings, alumni events, student art work for sale, multi-cultural dance performances, and expanded hours at the McMullen Museum. Special guests at the festival have included Tracey Wigfield ’05, Nick Scandalios ’89, Chris Doyle ’81, Anne Garefino ’81, Robert Polito ’73, Chuck Hogan ’89 and Amy Poehler ’93.”
I will have three of my black-and-white photographs on display at the event.
