News in the New Year….

Fall of 2018 was an exciting time at Light Art Space. The two featured exhibitions, Age & Seduction by Karen Hymer and the group exhibition Arizona Print Group were well received. Twenty-five people participated in the October cyanotype workshop with great results. Construction is on going in the back of the building – darkrooms and studio space are emerging. The plan is to offer workshops by summer 2019. Listed below are exhibitions, publications, and workshop opportunities.
