Flash and I recently returned to Silver City after two wonderful weeks on the Oregon coast. The three workshops I taught (two at Sitka Center For Art and Ecology and one at LightBox in Astoria) were filled with terrific students who made stunning prints.
Spring winds are with us in Silver City and the weather is lovely. Beauty abounds at Light Art Space with the installation of “Beauty Where You Find It: an exhibition to honor the recipients of the Denis Roussel Awards.” The hand-made photographic prints, made utilizing 19th and 20th-century techniques, by 20 artists from England, Spain, and across the United States, provide the viewer with a unique in-person art experience. Reception this Friday 5 pm – 7 pm.
