Btw, historically artist and photographers who submit photographic based artwork have done very well in the IFAC All Media exhibition, which I can personally validate with my Honorable Mention in the 2016 IFAC All Media juried exhibition. Other PhotoExchange members who have been honored with a exhibition at a past IFAC All Media shows are Ellen Butler, Paul Anderson, Gerhard Clausing, and Janos Lanyi. So mark your calendar, make your submissions and join the fun!

Paul Anderson’s photograph, entitled “Yellow-1,” is from his 2016 portfolio, “Floral Impressions.” He has shown us similarly intriguing images at our meetings:

My photograph is from the series “Selfscapes” that features my body in all its heights and depths, and is entitled “Nevertheless” to highlight the importance of keeping going as one observes one’s process of aging:

Janos Lanyi presents an abstract acrylic painting on canvas entitled “The Red House.” It is based on one of his trips to Spain, where he also photographed extensively, as you know from the enjoyable art that he shares from his many travels:
