When I was attending John Adams Junior High (now a middle school) if you had a 3.5 GPA or higher you could become a member of Honor Scholarship (run by Mr. La Duke). At the end of the school year, as a reward, you would get to go to the Sand & Sea Club for the day and I have very fond memories of going there every year of junior high. That club has been recently refurbished and is now the Annenberg Beach House with a grand opening on April 25.
Their first photography exhibit is Beach Stories and one of my images was chosen for the exhibit. There are 36 images in the exhibit and my image was chosen out of 250 submissions.
This is an incredible honor as I love my home town, the beach house (which was built by William Randolph Hearst for his mistress Marion Davies) and most especially the beach.
An Artist’s Reception will be held in mid-May (the date has not been finalized).
