Opening Reception & Fundraiser: Friday, May 3, 2013, 6:00-9:00 pm
Artist talk by Willie Osterman followed by Kitty Forbush at 7:30 pm

ChemoToxic, I Am That and Other Stories – representing photographer Willie Osterman’s documentation of his wife Michele’s chemotherapy and his fears that the disease might be lurking within his own body – will be presented at the Visual Studies Workshop beginning with an opening reception and fundraiser on May 3, 2013 from 6-9pm. The wet plate collodian process used by Osterman, an antiquated photographic technique developed in the 1850s, resulted in one-of-a-kind images printed on glass plates known as ambrotypes.

Proceeds from the opening event will benefit patients at Pluta Cancer Center.

Please consider donating to the ChemoToxic fundraiser.”
