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

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.”
