Media ICONS (& Beyond) Juried Photography Exhibit

3rd Annual Media ICONS (& Beyond) Juried Photography Exhibit

ICONS poster by Chris Dietrich, M.A.C.

Here are my entries selected for display at this very special exhibition:

Self-Portrait of the Artist

"Self-Proclaimed Local Yokel" ICONS Category
Self-Portrait while painting En Plein Air at
M.A.C.'s Bastille Day Celebration
in July 2009

The photograph, above, was taken from a tri-pod with self timer. It is not a double exposure as many people believe. I selected aperature priority which automatically set the shutter speed at about 22 seconds. I pre-programmed my Nikon digital SLR to flash twice, once with "slow-sync," and lastly with "rear-sync".

BFF's in West Virginia

"BFF's in West Virginia" Beyond Category

I am biased because this is my dog, "Izo," but decided to submit the photo because it is not your typical family pet picture. No worries, my dog knows that the butterflies and bees are "Mommies Buddies" and he doesn't hurt them. "Izo" is a Shiba Inu. Read more about the breed Shiba Inu on Wikipedia!

Congratulations to all of the winners, as seen above in the ICONS (& Beyond) poster, and many thanks to the Media Arts Council for another great show!

Media Food and Craft Festival

It was so great to talk to all of the visitors who stopped and shopped at my Craft Stand at last week's Media Food & Crafts Festival! I hope everyone is enjoying their archival art prints, and thanks for all of the compliments on my recent solo art exhibit last month at Starbuck's for September's 2nd Saturday!

Remember you can always shop at my Etsy Art shop "Pigeons in the Attic" twenty-four hours a day!

You can read more about other M.A.C. Registered artists who participated on the Media Arts Council's new blog! And best of all... Philly2Philly featured my craft stand in a recent article about the event!

I would like to thank all of my friends and family for all of their support over the years. I couldn't be successful without you!
