A happy holiday it was

As the year comes to the end we have the habit of reflecting on the past years ups and downs. For me, there have been a lot of changes, and it was definitely a trying time mentally as a first year post graduate, trying to make decisions of what the next step shall be. Either way it was all a learning  / growing experience and with a new outlook, I can't wait to welcome in the new year and set my sights on what changes I can make both professionally and personally to move forward.

Until then I'm 'belly surfing' on happiness!

She's a shinning star

This past summer I had the opportunity to photograph lil Miss Alayna. As we ran around the house,  laughing, dancing, and singing, she reminded me of what little girls are made of...enjoy!

I am thankful...

As we wind down from our Halloween sugar high, the holiday spirit starts to set in. This year has brought a lot of changes, ups and downs, and as I reflect on the year that has passed I am thankful for the opportunities I have been blessed with to experience with those I love the most.

The simple things in life can always have the largest impact on our lives, but it takes something special in each of us to notice those simple moments of pure happiness.

BLACK, 2012
Artist were selected through a two-tiered process. In early summer 2012, MAP sent letters to Maryland state art leaders, gallery owners and educators soliciting nominations of a single artist for consideration by the LUX jury: Elliott Landy (freelance - NY state & official photographer of Woodstock 1969); Lynn Silverman (instructor - Maryland Institute College of Art); Joshua Yospyn (freelance - Washington DC); Colby Caldwell (instructor - St. Mary’s College of Maryland); and, Josh Sisk (freelance – Baltimore, MD).  After careful deliberation the jury selected 29 artists and 46 pieces for the LUX exhibition this fall.

The LUX exhibition will open as part of MAP’s annual fall gala on November 9 and will be on view until December 15. On the night of the gala, all of the artwork in the LUX exhibition will be available for purchase in a silent auction format. There will be a closing reception on Thursday, December 13 from 6p - 8p, which will be free and open to the public.

The LUX gala is hosted by Baltimore’s own Ray Lewis. Tickets for the Gala are available at missontix.com
LUX is a measure of the intensity of physical light, as captured in a photograph or digital image, and is a metaphorical reference to the spiritual and intellectual light that is created by contact with fresh, exciting works of art.

The Fall Benefit provides crucial revenue for MAP's year-round programming and operations. Connecting artists with communities since 1981, MAP is a Baltimore-based nonprofit contemporary art center. MAP energizes the region’s cultural environment through dynamic exhibitions, interactive events, educational programs and public art projects.

Thanks for the support!

Post graduation

As the excitement of graduation wears down and the reality of what's next sets in, I unpack and unload what I knew to be my life for the last three years. Now having met my goal I think about how will I keep the momentum going, how will I keep everything so relevant, and I have come to the simple conclusion of....."just keep working!"

So please stay tuned, I promise there's more to come!

Congratulations to the class of 2012!!!

These past few weeks I really had time to reflect on my "MICA Experience". I am truly going to miss the photo department and everyone that I have become friends with, faculty, staff, and students in all departments. For those that are not staying in Baltimore, we will forever be Facebooked LinkedIn and tumblred together :) and to those that are staying let us not forget you can pretty much get anywhere in "15 mins". The long sleepless nights, stressful crits, and pressure to do our best was all worth it, and I will do it all over again.

2012 Baker's Artist Winner Announced

The announcement has been made...Congratulations to all of the 2012 Baker and b-Grant Winners! Stayed tuned September 5th we will all come together in the Baker Exhibition at the Baltimore Museum of Art!

What does it all mean

As many of you know right now I am in the process of working on my thesis as my studies at MICA (Maryland Institute College of Art) come to an end. As always my work involves those around me in some type of way, shape or form. So with that said, I am asking you to participate with me once again.

Thinking about the shift/change that has happened in the black community from the Civil Rights Era until now, I would appreciate your input on what it means to YOU to be black in America TODAY. I want your honest opinions and answers, but please remember to be respectful. 

Emails can be sent to missjones_81@yahoo.com and in the subject line please put: BLACK IN AMERICA

Pass along, share, and communicate with others, invite them to comment too.

I appreciate your participation….

Time flys when you're having fun!

Mark your calendars for January 29th as we celebrate from 12noon - 5p the 1 year anniversary of the BMI: Black Male Identity Project as the Reginald F Lewis Museum!! I was honored to be part of such an amazing project and can't wait to see what the new year will bring.

See my contribution to this project here!

Also on the 29th is the opening of their new exhibit Dandy Lion: Articulating a Re(de)fined Black Masculine Identity which will be on exhibit January 29 – May 13, 2012.

Twenty emerging photographers and filmmakers present refreshing images of young black men who challenge popular notions of urban black masculinity. Guest curated by Shantrelle P. Lewis, this exhibition defies the negative image of the black male as “thug” and explores contemporary expressions of the “Black Dandy,” the sophisticated urban gentleman whose “swagger” engages both African aesthetics and elements of classical European fashion.
