October 27th, Dayton, OH: Opening Reception & Gallery Talk for “The Fixed Shadow: A Juried Photography Exhibition of Camera-less Images”

Wright State University | Robert & Elaine Stein Galleries
The Fixed Shadow: A Juried Photography Exhibition of Camera-less Images

Opening Reception & Gallery Talk with Carol Panaro-Smith & James Hajicek
Sunday, October 27, 2013, 3:00-5:30 pm

Free and open to the public.

“From October 27 – December 8, 2013 the Robert and Elaine Stein Galleries will present selected works by artists from across the United States. The works use camera-less photographic processes. Among the processes used are photograms, scanograms, lumen prints, chemigrams, and photogenic drawings: all of which describe methods where light is used to capture an image directly onto a surface.

Exhibition jurors and featured artists Carol Panaro-Smith and James Hajicek have been working with camera-less photographic processes throughout their careers. Their collaborative photogenic drawings of organic materials beautifully engage themes of serendipity and impermanence.

On Sunday October 27, 2013 jurors Carol Panaro-Smith and James Hajicek will be presenting a gallery talk from 3:00-4:00 in the Robert & Elaine Stein Galleries. An opening reception will follow from 4:00 P.M. until 5:30 P.M.”

March 7th, Boston: Artist Talk by France Scully Osterman “The Light at Lacock”

Photographic Resource Center
France Scully Osterman: The Light at Lacock
Thursday, March 7, 2013 at 6:30 pm
Admission: $10 General | $5 members & students | Free for BU community & PRC member institutions

France Scully Osterman will discuss her first collaboration with her husband, Mark Osterman, The Light at Lacock: Sun Sketches at the Twilight of Photography, currently on display at the PRC in The Doors of Perception. The couple created a collection of paper negatives using William Henry Fox Talbot’s original process of photogenic drawing and his earliest camera designs. They trod the same ground as the inventor in the village of Lacock, England, and revisited the miracle of the first chemical sketches made by nature alone. Along the way the couple made some discoveries of their own. Limitations of the early process and an inclement climate eventually guided the Ostermans to concentrate on photographing the effect of light that surrounds a subject rather than that which illuminates it. The results are painterly but also fugitive. As in Talbot’s time, the same light that created these images also destroys them. And so, it is only by the ironic marriage with the digital pigment print that now displaces photography that these colorful sun sketches can be exhibited for the first time.”
