Emporia Artist Walk & Flint Hills Landscapes

I will be located in the Pyramid Pizza building, 11 East 6th, downtown Emporia. The Emporia Artist Walk is Saturday, 18 April from 10 am to 4 pm.

With me at Pyramid Pizza will be Rachel Ferrara, a finely talented up-and-coming young photographer. Rachel is Fine Arts student at Emporia State University majoring in photography. I made this video of her senior project show last January.

I finished mounting the big Flint Hills prints. Quite the project to get that big triptych mounted. The final matted size is 40×20 inches. My Emporia¬† Artist Walk display will feature Black & White Flint Hills landscapes from Chase County, Greenwood County, Wabaunsee County, and Geary County.

Hope to see you at the Artist Walk.

Snokomo Creek School – Flint Hills

Snokomo Creek School by Alex Hawley

Another door to learning in the Kansas Flint Hills. This one is at the Snokomo Creek School in Wabaunsee County, Kansas, near Paxico. Snokomo is easy to get to and getting there is half the joy. On I-70, take the Snokomo Rd exit, follow the road South for about 3-1/2 miles. The school will be on your left adjacent to the road. Snokomo can give you what photographers call a “U-turn Moment”.

“North Wall” was taken on my second outing to the Snokomo area. My friend and fellow LPA member, Rob Young, was along for this trip. His rendition of the school is done on gum bichromate. Please see Rob’s blog for complete details.

Fine Art prints of “Snokomo School” may be purchased through my APUG Portfolio. Please contact me if you desire to purchase one. This version is an 8×10 contact print printed on Azo fiber base silver chloride paper.
