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.”

September 14th, Pittsburgh: Gallery Talk & Reception for Will Steacy

No Job No Home No Peace No Rest an Installation by Will Steacy

Friday, September 14, 2012, 6:30-9:00 pm

“Presented against the backdrop of the 2012 election season, Will Steacy‘s new installation is both a chronicle and critique of a nation where a once-attainable “American Dream” has been replaced, for so many, by a desperate effort to survive.

At the heart of the exhibition (the title of which comes from a line in the Bruce Springsteen song The Ghost of Tom Joad) is Steacy’s 170-foot collage, which he dubs “The Beast.” A systematic, often eviscerating dissection of American policies and politics, the collage is made up of thousands of clippings from newspapers collected over the years, his own photographs and writings, and found objects. It is shown here for the first time in its entirety, along with thirty-two photographs from earlier and ongoing projects–Down These Mean Streets, All My Life I Have Had The Same Dream, and We Are All In This Together.”

The installation will be up from September 14 – December 15, 2012.
