Just found out that I was given some time off in the fall to work on research. Thank you Dean Depoy of the College of Creative Arts & Communication and the Professional Development and Scholarship Reallocation Award Committee!
I will be speaking tonight at Professor April Friges’ Senior Thesis Class at Point Park University (Pittsburgh) TONIGHT about research, project ideation and development before meeting with her students for individual critiques.
I expect it will look something like the following (just to a larger group and in a room filled with more computers) — so in other words, NOT a lot like the following after-all! The following image is from a talk at Robert Morris University in October 2012.
I just received a letter from the YSU University Research Council at Youngstown State University stating that I have been awarded significant funding to help offset costs associated with an exhibition. Thanks, URC!
Reporter Nicole Doll, on Portland Oregons FOX ( ! ) affiliate did a story on my Unmarked project — I was honored to have my work serve as the conclusion of her impressive (and incredibly well researched) multi-part series.
My solo exhibition was reviewed by Robert Raczka for the Pittsburgh City Paper in an article titled “Photographer Stephen Chalmers captures the snowbirds and desert rats of the Southwest.”
I was delighted to be a professional portfolio reviewer at the 2013 National Conference of the Society for Photographic Education, ‘Conferring Significance: Celebrating Photography’s Continuum’. I was able to view the work of some really great artists, including Deborah Orloff, Tomiko Jones, Mark Eshbaugh, Joshua Dudley Greer, Kay Westhues, and Dan Snow.
My colleague, Prof. Christiansen Erb, and I brought a number of our star students to the 2013 National Conference of the Society for Photographic Education. The conference, with the theme ‘Conferring Significance: Celebrating Photography’s Continuum’, was at the Palmer House Hilton in Chicago from March 7-10.
Jessica Futrell reviewed my work for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette in an article titled “Let’s talk about art: No place like home.” See the review at: http://www.post-gazette.com/stories/ae/art-architecture/lets-talk-about-art-no-place-like-home-677946/
I gave a gallery talk at my solo show at the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts. Really great crowd, who asked super questions (and even sent me a number of e-mails after the lecture). Thanks Pittsburgh!
