Thank you to Betsy Hansen for including mention of my upcoming exhibition in the recent ASMPCF newsletter. I am excited to announce the first Florida exhibition of "Farm Team: A Season in the Minors" at the Alric C.T. Pottberg Gallery on the campus of Pasco-Hernando Community College. The photographs of the Savannah Sand Gnats baseball team document the pitfalls and triumphs of the 2004 season, the 100th anniversary of minor league baseball in Savannah, Georgia. I traveled on the team bus and photographed the team through the rituals of daily summer league life, portraying a side of minor league ball that spectators rarely witness: prayers in the dugout on Sunday, clubhouse card games during a rain delay, dominos games on the team bus, and the training room routine before each game. The resulting visual chronicle honors the hopeful determination of the minor league team and documents their hardships in pursuit of the highest level of sport.
The exhibition runs from April 14 - May 12 with an opening reception on Thursday, April 14th from 5-7 pm. A "ballpark menu" will be served at the reception. Please join me that evening. Fine art prints from the limited edition collection will be available.
More information can be found online here along with the exhibition guide for 2011 at the gallery. Feel free to visit the online site for the project.
