Light Sensitive 2014 – Celebrating Images from the Darkroom
A Juried Exhibition Celebrating Images from the Darkroom
Art Intersection presents our third annual Light Sensitive juried exhibition in the North and South Galleries.
Light Sensitive, a juried exhibition, celebrates the art of creating handmade images using traditional photographic print making processes. Work this year comes from national and international artists and includes c-prints, platinum/palladium, cyanotype, gelatin silver, gum bichromate, wet plate collodion tintypes, and many other printing processes.
Up to three artists will be selected from the exhibition as best in show for an additional exhibition sometime in 2014 – 2015.
