Artwork Archive Features My Photographs This Week

Artwork Archive is an ingenious online tool for artists to manage their collections of artwork--keeping up with things like where pieces have been shown, where they are currently displayed (helpful when working with galleries), when they have been purchased and other details that need to be tracked. It can also be used to maintain contact information for clients, galleries and others on your mailing list. And one of my favorite tools is the reminder it sends me each week about what I have coming up: submission deadlines, delivery dates, shows to take down, classes to teach, materials to submit and much more.

In addition to the "back-end" business tools, Artwork Archive also presents my work to gallerists, collectors, art consultants and others looking for artwork. In fact, I had a museum curator reach out to me with questions via Artwork Archive just last week.

So I was thrilled to get a note from Emily Zupsic from Artwork Archive today to let me know that two of my pages were featured on their blog this week. Here's a quote from the piece, which featured six artists: 

The beauty, essence and changing complexion of landscapes fascinates artist and photographer Lee Anne White. And, she carries that beauty over to her portfolio. It is completely and beautifully branded. In other words, as soon as you open her portfolio, you understand the type of work she creates. The clean grid formed by her square dimensions feels bold and modern. Another amazing feature of her portfolio? She includes just the right amount of detail when you click on each piece!

Anyhow, I thought that was pretty cool and just wanted to share. If you're an artist and need to track your own artwork, check it out. And if you're looking for artwork of any kind, it is a clean, intuitive site for searching.

Student Images: Santa Fe and Northern New Mexico

During my recent workshop, Photographing the Cultural Landscape, we explored Pecos National Historical Site, took the High Road to Taos, visited O'Keeffe country, hiked in Bandelier National Monument, stopped in Chimayo and wandered around Santa Fe to capture the spirit of the Southwest. Here are a few images created by students during thew week:

My next Santa Fe workshop is tentatively scheduled for Spring 2019. If you'd like to be added to the mailing list, drop me a line.

To hear the voice of Dr. James Southerland is to be transported back to my freshman year of college, to the World Civilization class that met in the Owens Building, now the Student Union Building, on the campus of Brenau University. Soft-spoken, thoughtful and always encouraging, Dr. Southerland was one of my favorite professors and he went on to become a fine academic administrator, as well. Although he retired a few years ago, it is still a treat to see him on campus and around town, and it is an honor to have one of my photographs on the cover of his memoir, Sharecropper's Son: A Journey of Teaching and Learning. Credit for the design goes to Christie Gregory.

The book has just been released, so I'm looking forward to reading about Dr. Southerland's journey--to hearing his voice and stories once again. Copies are available through the Brenau University  website

Student Images: Amelia and the Southern Sea Islands

I have just returned from Amelia Island, where a group of students from the U.S. and Canada joined me for a week of photographing Amelia, Big Talbot, Little Talbot and Fort George Islands. Each had a distinct eye and was attracted to something different on the islands--sometimes the light, sometimes textures or patterns, sometimes the water and sometimes an emotional connection or sense of place. When looking at their images (below), it's also interesting to note the differences in their color palettes.  Enjoy!

My next workshop on Amelia Island will be December 2-8, 2017. Early December may be my favorite time on the island. It is late fall, so there is still some color in the trees and the marshes are still green. Temperatures are usually just right, birds are migrating, and tourists have gone for the season. It's not unusual to have the beach to yourself, some occasional fog, and good shelling. In the historic town of Fernandina Beach, parking places will be easy to come by and there is no wait at restaurants. Did I mention the food? We spend almost as much time savoring the seafood as we do photographing the landscape in this workshop. If you'd like a short break from the hustle and bustle of the holidays, consider joining me this December on the island.
