2017 AND EARLY 2018 JOHN SEXTON PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOPS SCHEDULE
I am pleased to announce my new workshop schedule for 2017 through early 2018. I continue to be amazed at the interest in the workshops that we offer. It is particularly rewarding to note the international interest in our traditional printmaking workshop, The Expressive Black and White Print, being offered in 2017 for the thirty-fourth consecutive year. By popular demand we are once again offering the Fine Tuning the Expressive Print workshop in April 2018. This workshop is open only to individuals who have previously taken one of my printing workshops.

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.
