: Annual Johns Hopkins Art & Photography Exhibition to Benefit The Children Hospital

This is the second year in a row, I've been invited to attend the annual Johns Hopkins Art & Photography Exhibition April 8 to May 1, 2020 held at the Kossiakoff Center on the Applied Physic Laboratory (APL) Grounds.


This might not sound like a major art exhibit to most readers, but to me and that it's only the second year I've participated in this event, It's the only way I've been able to have my art/photography on display.

What makes this important to me, is that I was asked to return even after a very difficult experience I had with the host of this event last year. Another reason I'm thrilled about being asked to return, is that the Kossiakoff Center is used a a multi purpose meeting hall for NASA officials and other dignitaries. This month long event will allow a few thousand spectators to view my work up close.

If time warrants, come out to the Kossiakoff Center and view my two submitted works as well as other works of art from other artist. Remember, this exhibition is to benefit the Johns Hopkins Children Center Art & Artist for a Cause.

Thanking you in advance for your contributions to the Children's Center.

Just got an email from the host of this exhibition, "Because of the Corona Virus, We're sorry to inform you that this years art & photography exhibition will be canceled till further notice"

Little upset at this response to the Corona Virus thing.. I've spent nearly $500.00 on two prints and now I can't do anything with them. This money could have went for other things.. I'll think twice about subscribing to another even like this in the future.

In addition, Just got another email from Michaels on behalf of a color issue with my prints. I wasn't pleased with how these prints looked (blue gray tint) and not black & white or more of a grayscale. Michaels has just informed me to surrender these framed prints for a full refund. This couldn't have come at a more propo time.. Exhibit canceled then get my money back for useless prints.
