Firstly, I found out I was accepted into the 9th Annual International Photography Competition at the Fraser Gallery in Bethesda. I plan to attend the opening reception where one of my brand new Gelatin Relief images will be displayed. More info about the show:

I was also awarded a solo exhibition at Black Rock Center for the Arts in Germantown, Maryland for the 2010-11 season. I don't know exact dates at this time, but will keep everyone posted as soon as I know.
