The SE Center for Photography

My work is currently on display at The SE Center for Photography for a group show entitled Beyond The Selfie.  The show focuses on unique self-portraits.  I was able to attend the opening at the Greenville, South Carolina gallery.  The show will be open through the end of March 2017.

Water Protector

I created this mask with thoughts of our water protectors all over North America.  I've been specifically following the native people and their allies who are making a courageous stand against the Dakota Access Pipeline in North Dakota.  I'm selling this mask for $150 and all profits will be donated to the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and the Camp of the Sacred Stones.  Contact me at jymdavis[at]gmail.com if you are interested in this handmade, one of a kind mask.  I will not repeat the design - it will remain a unique artwork.  (model Roger Herrera)

Petrified Forest National Park Artist-In-Residency

I was a summer 2016 Artist-In-Residence at Petrified National Forest Park in Arizona.  I lived in a Park historic cabin for three weeks across from the legendary Painted Desert Inn.  During my residency I made five original animal masks and worked with models to photograph my work in the unique and otherworldly landscape.  I also displayed my work at the Holbrook Train Depot for their monthly art series, showed work at the annual Route 66 festival, and held a two day demonstration at the lovely La Posada Hotel in Winslow.
