A group exhibition, FAMILY MATTERS, revisited explores familial relationships through the vision of photographers who share personal perspectives on their own families whether as documentation or metaphor. Through images they explore intimate family dynamics, cultural traditions, painful and joyful memories, bonds of support and love, as well as challenging issues of illness, prejudice, abuse and addiction.
Join us for in the gallery for Coburn’s intimate artist talk and a discussion about forgiveness on Tuesday, Oct 28 at 6:30 pm
Come share family stories with Miranda after her artist talk in the gallery on Tuesday, Nov 18 at 6:30 pm
FAMILY MATTERS, revisited features Daniel Coburn’s Domestic Reliquary in which he uses vernacular photographs to represent personal family dynamics. By portraying his own family’s dark history through the use of found images, he speaks about personal struggles, quiet suffering and a gradual healing from the past. Coburn reproduces these images using the salted paper process and then applies paint or sews into the print. He earned his MFA from the University of New Mexico and is currently a professor of Photo Media at the University of Kansas. Daniel W. Coburn
In Karen Miranda’s series Other Histories/Historias Bravas, she reenacts memories from her childhood in which she collaborates with members of her family, often her mother and her aunt, to explore issues concerning her bi-cultural background growing up in Ecuador and the US. She says the images “provide a means for reflection and a search for truthfulness.” Miranda’s act of handwriting her diaristic titles directly onto the print welcomes the viewer into her intimate space and invites us to reflect on our own personal histories.

Other artists featured in the exhibition include Sean Black, Jess Dugan, Annie Lopez, Marivi Ortiz, Hillerbrand + Magsamen and H. Jennings Sheffield.

The opening of Eternal Platinum marks Art Intersection’s third anniversary. Our first exhibition on January 17, 2011 was Out of the Blue: Contemporary Cyanotype Invitational. Once again we went to a traditional process that offers a unique, and distinctive presentation of an image. On exhibition in the North and South Galleries are exquisite works from artists that have not been shown before at Art Intersection.
A platinum print is an exceptionally beautiful and everlasting image presented through a wide range of subtle tones. The creation of a contemporary platinum print, whether from film or digital camera, remains an intimate, handcrafted process. The artist begins by hand coating an art paper with a platinum or platinum/palladium solution, exposing the sensitized paper to ultra-violet light, and then hand processing the exposed paper to create the final, permanent print. No two prints are ever identical.
This exhibition is in conjunction with PhotoTapas, celebrating the art of photography in Arizona during the month of February.

This year begins an expansion of our gallery program to include the representation of artists who will be shown in Ryan Gallery. The East Gallery has been renamed the Ryan Gallery and will serve as the space for presentation of works by the represented artists. During Eternal Platinum in the Ryan Gallery, with platinum prints, are the following artists:
- Michael T. Puff

In the future we will show the works of additional represented artists with prints produced in the darkroom using processes including cyanotype, gelatin silver, kallitype, etc.
IMAGES FROM THE OPENING
Below are the incredibly nice parents of Charles Grogg, standing in front of one of four images by Charles.
Jim and Carol standing in front of work by Dick Arentz. Carol worked through much of last year to curate this show. She worked directly with the artists, as well as two Arizona galleries to bring this work to Art Intersection. Thank you Carol for a great job. Also, thank you to Tilt Gallery and Etherton Gallery for making this work available to Art Intersection.
Two close friends of Art Intersection, David Emitt Adams and Rosie Shipley. Rosie will be the juror for our upcoming student photography exhibition, Emerge. Thank you Rosie. David was the juror for last year’s Emerge exhibition.
Randy Efros, well know photographer and arts patron joined us. One of his images hangs permanently at Art Intersection.
Mark and Becky Godfrey and Chris Palmer and Tammy Cowden never miss an opening. Mark’s company Parker Madison is the marketing firm for Art Intersection. Both Chris and Tammy have had their work on exhibition at Art Intersection in the past.
Jamie Fitzgerald, Debra Wilson, and Alan Fitzgerald in the Ryan Gallery. Debra works behind the scene at Art Intersection making sure the bills are paid and the business pieces stay organized. Jamie practices acupuncture nearby at The Healing Point. Alan, well we’re not sure what he does, but he drinks most of the coffee.
James Hajicek and Mary Kay Zeeb discussing the platinum process. Jim taught the non-silver curriculum at ASU, and was a professor there for over 30 years. Mary Kay teaches, and is an instructor for the Italy Workshop.
Neil Miller and Marilyn Miller never miss an opening or event at Art Intersection. As always Neil has his camera around his neck, but tonight it’s different, he is shooting with an infra-red flash and filter. He will co-instruct the upcoming infra-red workshop.
