No Strangers Opening Reception

We had a nice opening reception for this year’s No Strangers exhibition. With many in our community vaccinated, this is hopefully the last time for everyone to wear masks.

Thirty-two members have their work on display in No Strangers and we had the chance to meetup with most of them during the opening reception. It sure feels good to once again shake hands and meet in person.

Neil and Audrey talking about Neil’s new work. Audrey’s work was next to Neil’s and her book is on a pedestal. 

Fred’s showed a variety of his beautiful gelatin silver prints.

Here’s Shari in front of her Suminagoshi on Hosho paper is a reflection on a friend’s life as a testimony to the power of relationships.

Chuck works in a variety of mediums and for the member show he entered photographs printed on metal.

Encaustic Imagery with Sherrie Posternak

What a fun weekend workshop to create imagery using simple to advanced encaustic techniques. In this 2-day workshop students made photo transfers on sample boards, using seven different types of printed surfaces, three methods of transferring, and six different ways of “sealing in” the transfers.

No Strangers Opening Reception

The opening of No Strangers gave the community a chance to see the diverse art created by the members of Art Intersection. We all wore masks, except for some of the photographs, to make it a safe and healthy time viewing this wonderful work.

While we usually have several hundred and more visitors during this opening, for the safety and health of our visitors, we reduced the attendance to twenty-five visitors per hour.

Light Sensitive Opening Reception

This opening was diminished by COVID-19 precautions, limiting the number of visitors to only 25 in the galleries where we would usually have 200 to 250 enthusiastic artists and visitors during normal times. In this case, with appreciation and gratitude under the circumstances, a small turnout was definitely better than being closed.

Thank you to everyone that attended this amazingly beautiful exhibition of prints and objects created in the darkroom. From carbon prints to albumen to platinum and silver, from framed prints to books to blown glass, the Light Sensitive artists displayed true masterpieces of their craft and creativity. Thank you!

There will be a closing reception on August 8, 5-8pm. Take time to visit the exhibition and make an appointment to join us for the closing reception.

Photogravure Workshop with Karen Hymer

This past weekend at Art Intersection we held a 2 day photogravure printing workshop with Karen Hymer. We had a talented group of students, some with experience in this process and others with none at all. Thank you to Karen Hymer for teaching this workshop!

Over the course of 2 days the students learned each step in the photogravure process which included exposing their positive under UV light onto a photopolymer plate. After the plate was exposed and the imaged was etched in, they coated with ink and learned different processes for wiping and removing the ink.

Karen Hymer explained that using the correct wiping techniques creates great contrast and highlights in the final print. Using your photograph as a guide, you can determine which areas need strong shadows and which parts you want more highlight.

Next, our 1870s etching press was used to stamp the plate onto wet paper creating a beautiful one of a kind print embossed into the beautiful art paper.

Students explored different mixtures of ink which created different colors, changing the outcome of contrast and highlight, as well as different types of paper.

We have new workshops at Art Intersection nearly every month, don’t miss out on the opportunity to learn a new unique process! Our next workshop is Tri-Color Gum Printing with Diana Bloomfield!

Encaustic Workshop with Sherrie Posternak

Thank you to everyone who joined us for this exciting 2-day Transferred and Embedded Imagery with Encaustic workshop with Sherrie Posternak. We had a talented group of students, who were eager and excited to learn this unique process. Thank you to Sherrie Posternak for teaching this workshop!

First, students were taught how to transfer their photos onto boards, using seven different types of printed surfaces, three methods of transferring, and six different ways of “sealing in” their transfers.

They also spend time learning how to correctly do a “dammed” pour which prepares for the transfer. One characteristic of encaustic medium lends itself well to receiving transferred or embedded images.

These techniques enhance the ability of the artist to represent ideas using layering, perspective, and graphics. Sherrie Posternak uses transferred and embedded images extensively in her work, and has advanced experimentation with a large variety of materials and methods.
