The latest installation at The Gallery at 100 Market is now hanging through April 15th. Do yourself a favor and go visit to see some incredible paintings, photographs, and of course – my series that I selected specifically for this show: “Above & Beyond”. The shot above is a glimpse of the series hanging on the 3rd floor, which have been mounted in gorgeous custom cherry frames with some anti-glare glass and featuring a few of my favorite photos.

I haven’t had the chance to get out and shoot over the past few nights, so I dug through the archives a bit. I came across this shot, which I took near City Hall and South Mill Pond. I loved the rich sunlight blasting through the newly blossomed trees and the moody shadows cast on the green grass. This is actually just a single exposure, not the typical “bracketed” 3 shot composition I usually feature….but the colors of the tree and the grass were too good in a single shot to mess with too much.
I also want to thank everyone who came by 100 Market Street last night to see the show and all of the great artists and their artwork. I’m honored to be part of the show, and even more happy to be able to share that my photography was awarded the “Best in Show”! Check out some of the shots that local photographer Ron Risman took over at his flickr site here. I hope everyone has a chance to swing by the gallery…head in the revolving door at the corner of Market & Hanover Street and make your way to the 1st floor elevator.
Another treat from last weekend’s sunrise features the Memorial Bridge basking in the glow of the first rays of the morning sun. I love the subtleness of the scene, highlighted by the orange light on the rusted bridge with the hovering orange clouds.
Part of this evening’s show at The Gallery at 100 Market will feature the Memorial Bridge. I wanted to highlight the beauty and the fragility of the bridge given its seemingly doomed future.
Thanks to Mark Dearborn I have these awesome posters and some very cool post cards that I’ve signed to give away to folks who make the trek to downtown Portsmouth for tonight’s show! Hope to see you all at 100 Market Street sometime between 5 and 7pm!
Thanks again to everyone who has continued to visit the site and share their wonderful feedback.
I am pleased and honored to be able to share with everyone the following info about an upcoming show right downtown! I had a blast selecting images to be included in this show, with some unique perspectives from town that you’ve seen here on the site….and made a point to highlight the Memorial Bridge as we don’t know how much longer it will be around for us to enjoy. The gallery is located at 100 Market Street, the same building that houses The 100 Club, Banana Republic, Springers Jewelers, and various office users. I can’t wait to visit the building and see the gorgeous and vibrant prints hanging on the walls…and only hope that others enjoy them as much as I enjoyed putting them together.
What: 11th Annual Summer Juried Exhibit

Once again, Infinite Imaging did a fantastic job at delivering a high quality product in a very accelerated timeframe. The following is an excerpt from the press release that went out this week!
“On August 13 The Gallery at 100 Market will open its eleventh “Summer Juried Exhibtion,” with an artist’s reception, from 5 to 7 p.m. The show features the work of two-dozen artists from throughout New England and will continue through November1.
“This is a theme-free show with a mix of mediums and subjects, a smorgasbord of visions and approaches,” says Michael Simchik, building owner and gallery sponsor. “And surprisingly enough, after more than a decade of exhibits, it’s the first time we’ll feature an artist whose work is focused on Portsmouth and its iconic images.”
Since it’s inception the alternative gallery has avoided all but the most unique images of the seacoast, giving preference to work less apt to find placement in commercial establishments. This time there will be nearly 20 Portsmouth images by Philip Case Cohen, who chronicles the seacoast for his popular blog The Daily Portsmouth. Each of his images will feature a unique path to and in honor of Portsmouth.”
