As many of my followers know, both Matt and I both have a huge love for art. Matt draws and paints, and I do photography and mixed media. Recently I've discovered a few new artists and artistic resources that I would like to share!
1. Steven Berkman

I had the amazing opportunity to see Steven Berkman speak at the Tuesday Night Lectures at San Jose State University. He then visited our graduate seminar afterwards and spoke to us about his work. The photo above is of the lovely professor of Photography, Robin Lasser and Steven Berkman.
Man with a Downtrodden Banana
A Wandering Eye
Not only an amazing speaker, but a wonderful photographer as well. With the overabundance of digital images, it is reassuring to know that photographers still prefer wet darkroom processes, in this case, ambrotypes.
2. Bay Area Art Grind
This blog is a great resource for photographers looking for Bay Area events! It is run by a former SJSU MFA alum, and is updated daily! Thanks Barb!
3. Also, this is too late, but Stephen Shore is lecturing tonight at SFMOMA 7-9PM. If you haven't checked out his work, do so!
