EXPRESSIVE BLACK AND WHITE PRINT WORKSHOP SESSION
We are pleased to announce that, due to popular demand, we have added an additional session of the Expressive Black and White Print Workshop - April 4 through 9, 2017. There are still some spaces available in this new April session. If you are interested in attending, I suggest that you enroll as soon as possible.
The Expressive Black and White Print Workshop is probably my favorite workshop to teach, as I feel the quality and quantity of information we present is excellent. I continue to be amazed and humbled by the interest in this traditional analog workshop - now being offered for thirty-four consecutive years. For those of you who have attended my workshops in the past, you realize that the schedule is intense, but enjoyable, and my motto is workshop till you drop!

2016-2017 JOHN SEXTON PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOPS SCHEDULE
I am pleased to announce my new workshop schedule for 2016 through early 2017. One of the most gratifying aspects of my nearly forty years of teaching workshops is the number of friends I have made over the years. It pleases me to see people who have been pursuing their passion for photography for decades making great progress along the way. Recently I received a note from one such photographer. I was humbled and honored that they felt I had contributed in some small way to their success in photography.
We are happy to again offer three sessions of The Expressive Black and White Print workshop, which has been offered with multiple sessions every year for the past thirty-three years and still has great interest!

JOHN AND ANNE TWO PERSON MUSEUM EXHIBITION
It is with great disappointment that Anne and I have come to the difficult decision to postpone our two-person exhibition Inspired by Light: The Photographs of John Sexton and Anne Larsen at the Longview Museum of Arts in Longview, Texas.
On our travels back from the Southwest in May I experienced significant pain in my right knee. Friends and long time readers of this eNewsletter might recall that I had a partial left knee replacement almost five years ago. I originally injured my right knee in 1985 and have had a number of surgeries over the years to repair the damage of the initial injury, as well as re-injury. I knew I would need a new knee at some point, but had not anticipated in any way that it would be happening this year. I did not fall or knowingly injure my knee on this trip, but the pain I was experiencing on our return was not reduced by pain medication, icing, and other procedures I have used effectively over the years. Instead it got worse. This led me to a visit with my orthopedic surgeon – the same fellow who did my initial surgery almost thirty-one years ago. It turns out that I will be having a total knee replacement in early November, shortly after we return from our annual Mono Lake workshop with Charlie Cramer.
Regrettably the pain in my knee has made it difficult to work in the darkroom for extended periods of time. Though Anne and I normally do not work in the darkroom together, she is now assisting me in terms of processing of my prints, as well as toning and washing the prints, for which I am most grateful. In spite of our best efforts, we could quickly see this was going to limit our planned productivity this summer in preparing new work we had both planned on including in the exhibition.
I contacted Tiffany Jehorek, the Acting Director of the Museum, to explain our situation. She most graciously suggested the possibility of postponing the exhibition. As disappointing as this was, we realized it was the right thing to do. The museum was already booked for 2017, so the new dates for our exhibition together are October 13 through December 15, 2018.
We will be traveling to Longview for an artist reception, and there will be a public lecture, as well as an all-day seminar in November of 2018. We will provide more details as the event draws closer. We apologize to those who were enrolled in the all-day seminar and to those who were planning to attend the reception or the public lecture. Hopefully we will all be able to rendezvous in 2018, and the exhibition will be even better because of the additional time available to make photographs and prints between now and then.
