I spent two months in Antarctica at the end of 2015 as a grantee of the National Science Foundation Antarctica Artists and Writers Prorgram. A Rubys Award from the Greater Baltimore Cultural Alliance will support the creation of sculptural work based on ice formations to be exhibited in October-December 2017 at Goucher College's Rosenberg Gallery. The sculpture of the Canada Glacier from Lake Fryxell is on view April 8-30 at Glen Echo Park in the Popcorn Gallery in the exhibition Sculpture REMIX: 2017 -- Craft/Technology/Art.

One of the photographs I took in Antarctica is January 2016 Cloud of the Month on the web site of the Cloud Appreciation Society. Nine works from this project will be exhibited at the 2016 Artscape Festival in Baltimore as part of the Sondheim Semi-Finalist Exhibition.

I was the 2014-15 Baltimore Ecosystem Study Artist-in-Residence. The project was the inaugural exhibition at Space Camp Gallery, 16 W. North Ave. in Baltimore in October 2015.
