Summer Events

Summer has arrived and the weather is perfect in Silver City.  I just returned from Oregon where I taught 3 exciting workshops (photopolymer gravure and cyanotypes) to great students.  It was touch and go but at the final hour the weather cooperated for our sun-exposed cyanotypes.

Over the 4th of July weekend I will be participating in an art sale in Santa Fe sponsored by Bostik and Sullivan and will have a piece on display at Remarque Gallery in Albuquerque.  I am pleased to have Age & Seduction featured in the June issue of Dek Unu.

At Light Art Space this is the final weekend of 5 Latinxs. It is always sad to see an exhibition end but I am very excited about the upcoming Playing With Process which features 20 artists using alternative photographic processes.

There is still space in the two upcoming workshops: photopolymer gravure with me and Tri-Color Gum Bichromate with Diana Bloomfield.

June issue features my Age & Seduction series

Dek Unu Magazine was founded by photoartists for photoartists. While literary magazines, small presses and university journals provide space for adventurous photography, they are often broad in scope, including perhaps a dozen different writers and a half-dozen visual artists. Additionally, they often restrict photography and other visual art to one or two images from each artist in an issue. Visual art often shares space with written work on the same page or is sprinkled around the contents wherever it fits. Dek Unu means to provide a photo-only outlet that focuses on the work of only one artist at a time, provides a respectful presentation of the work, and puts the artist in charge of theme and image selection.

Tri-Color Gum Printing with Diana Bloomfield

In this intensive two-day workshop, we will learn how to print in the 19th century photographic process of gum bichromate. Using color separation negatives, we’ll learn how to make multilayered, tri-color gum bichromate prints on watercolor paper.

No prior experience with this type of printing is necessary, so join us for two days of fun and experimentation with this interpretive, intuitive, and infinitely creative photographic printing process. Once you experience the joy of gum printing, you will never be the same!

To kick off the workshop weekend, Diana H. Bloomfield will be giving a gallery talk on Friday, August 16 from 6-7pm. Join us to hear her speak about her artwork and working methods and get a preview of the gum bichromate process before the workshop!

Gallery Talk: Friday, August 16th, 6pm – 7pm
Workshop: Saturday, August 17, 9am – 5pm and Sunday, August 18, 9am – 4pm
Tuition: $375.00 includes all supplies
