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.”

October 17th, Cincinnati: “Earth to Sky” Lecture by Michael ‘Nick’ Nichols

Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden Earth-To-Sky-book-cover-web3-475x475
Lecture by Michael ‘Nick’ Nichols
Thursday, October 17, 2013, 7:00-8:30 pm
Tickets: $10

“Elephants are among the Earth’s most sentient beings. They remember, they experience grief and joy, fear and love. Indeed, as our knowledge of these extraordinary creatures increases, the more they transcend all preconceptions of animal behavior.

Michael “Nick” Nichols, longtime photographer for National Geographic as well as the magazine’s editor-at-large for photography, has been working with African elephants for more than twenty years. In Earth to Sky he tells their story through poignant images that bring us directly into their habitats—lush forests and open savannas, or stark landscapes ravaged by human intervention—to observe the animals’ daily engagements and activities.”

This presentation is part of a tour starting on October 3rd in Charlottesville, VA in support of Nichols’ new book Earth to Sky: Among Africa’s Elephants, A Species in Crisis (Aperture, September, 2013).  To see when and where he will be throughout the month of October visit: www.michaelnicknichols.com/tour-dates-2013.
