Exploring Photography for Teens — July 2022

After a couple years it was wonderful to host our Exploring Photography teen summer camp again!

Over four afternoons last week, instructor Lisa Zirbel taught our students the fundamentals of photography across both digital and traditional film mediums. Students learned how to shoot 35mm black and white film with manual SLR cameras and make enlargements from their film in our photo lab. They also had the opportunity to make studio-lit portraits, which they processed using Adobe Photoshop to make inkjet prints of their photos. They even mixed film and digital photography both by making cyanotypes using negatives printed digitally from their own images, as well as by using botanicals and expired photo paper to make lumen prints in the sun during class.

To end all of our teen camps, on the final day we pin the students’ work on the wall and invite their families for a critique session to reflect on what they learned and the challenges they faced while creating their art.

All Art Arizona presents exciting work created by both well-known and emerging artists living in our own back yard, the state of Arizona.

The All Art Arizona opening reception draws artists, art collectors, and art lovers from all over the state to one of our best attended exhibitions of the year. As always, the exhibition is free and open to the public during business hours.

Look through the exhibition online and then come in to see the work in person. If you wish to purchase one of the pieces in the exhibition and can’t come in, give us a call and we will take payment over the phone and ship worldwide.

Little by Little

Little by Little, a juried exhibition of small artworks, presents a wide variety of art expressed in a size no more than twelve-inches in any dimension. Amazing, beautiful, and impactful small works of art presented in a dedicated exhibition from a more intimate viewpoint that begs for a closer look!

These incredible artworks make wonderful gifts for family, friends, or for you too. If you purchase a piece, we will take it off the wall to take it home with you that day.

Light Sensitive

To celebrate the art of handcrafted prints, Art Intersection presents Light Sensitive, our eleventh-annual, international juried exhibition of images created using traditional darkroom, historical, and alternative photographic processes and methods.

In the current takeover of imagery presented on computer screens and the overwhelming volume of digitally printed pictures, the purpose of our Light Sensitive exhibition is to celebrate, promote, and reaffirm the art of handcrafted prints that uniquely belong to the tradition of light sensitive creative processes. Each year we search for work representing creativity, passion, and display of the beauty these light sensitive processes bring.
