Hi Peter & everyone,

Congratulations to the North Texas Alternative Process group for a wonderful exhibit at MS State University during the SPE So Central conference last weekend.  I was privileged to attend the presentation by the group which introduced everyone who exhibited, including Peter Blackburn (so now I will know you if I ever meet you).  ;^)

I met some lovely folks & this is a super talented, excited group!  The show was really striking with the broadness of the media & techniques.  Peter's strong graphic qualities & colors were pure, mouth-watering memories of those childhood treats.  Thank you Peter and all the artists for this traveling show!

I recommend that anyone associated with a university or college that has support for alternative processes contact them about having this show come for an exhibit.  This will truly introduce the faculty, students, & anyone who sees it to the variety of image-making photo-based techniques that can be used.  Your institution will not be disappointed & I understand these folks are looking for possible venues to exhibit.

On another note:  As a Katrina survivor (63 miles n of where she roared into our lives in MS), I tried to get to folks prior to the hit & said tons of prayers & sent good thoughts for my friends, family & everyone in harm's way.  Glad to know that friends and family made it through in one piece.  We were without power in outlying areas for 23.5 days, and my studio got power back after 11 days because we were on the hospital grid.  A week would be a blessing, if it will stay up while work is going on.

Patience & strength will be needed in great measure for a long time to come.  Homes & things are replaceable; people are not.  The area & people will need spirits lifted often, as working through all the red tape to get assistance will be trying & a nightmarish scenario.  God bless them all.
