I’m honored and excited to have my photograph, A Glimpse of Infinity, No. 946 featured as part of NightVisions 2022 at the Coconino Center for the Arts in Flagstaff, AZ!
NightVisions: Cultural Interpretations of the Night Sky is an international juried art exhibition at Coconino Center for the Arts in Flagstaff, AZ that seeks to explore and celebrate our deep connections with the night. In its 8th iteration, we are excited to expand upon the exhibition concept in honor of the legacy of Flagstaff astronomer Carolyn S Shoemaker (June 24, 1929 – August 13, 2021) and her collaborations with husband and geologist Eugene Shoemaker (April 28, 1928 – July 18, 1997), with the inclusion of archival astronomical elements alongside the work of contemporary artists. We are honored to announce the co-curator, amateur astronomer and science writer, David Levy; and three renowned artist jurors Laura Camden, Joseph McShane, and Jerrel Singer who reviewed over 250 excellent and diverse works from artists internationally and chose 80 works for the exhibition. This exhibition will coincide with the grand opening of CCA’s new Digital Resource & Education Center in May 2022.
Flagstaff is the first International Dark-Sky City – this designation recognizes the extraordinary commitment of the Flagstaff community to night sky protection, which began with the world’s first regulations protecting the night sky over 60 years ago. These efforts were at the foundation of a global movement to protect night skies and continue through the efforts of the Flagstaff Dark Skies Coalition to celebrate, promote and protect the region’s glorious star-filled skies.
