No Strangers & Beyond My Lens Opening Reception

Over thirty members showed their work in this year’s No Strangers exhibition, and over one-hundred visitors joined us for the opening reception to see the art made by our member community.

Every year Art Intersection puts out a call for work to our Sponsor level and above members to have their work curated into the No Strangers exhibition. This year there are well over one-hundred pieces of art decorating the gallery walls!

Before the opening Timothy McCoy held a talk about his work currently in Ryan Gallery, Beyond My Lens. Timothy’s work has been seen in several past Light Sensitive exhibitions at Art Intersection, and Beyond My Lens features selections from his Tongues to Stone, Long Long Journey, Sanctuary, The Water Course Way, and Street Life bodies of work.

Picturing Resistance & Midnight La Frontera Opening

Thank you to everyone who attended the opening reception for our Picturing Resistance exhibition this past Saturday, where we had the pleasure of having author and performer Ada McCartney read selections of her own poems, as well as from Diane di Prima’s Revolutionary Letters in the passionate spirit of the images displayed on the walls in this exhibition.

Picturing Resistance will run until October 22nd, so there is still plenty of time to drop by and see the exhibition. In the meantime, have a look at a few moments from the opening reception!

 

In addition to selecting the work featured the Picturing Resistance exhibition, Ken Light has images from his book, Midnight la Frontera, on display in Ryan Gallery.  These images, while captured between 1983 and 1987 while he rode along with U.S. Border Patrol agents, depict the same inhumane treatment migrants face today at our border. Both Picturing Resistance and Midnight La Frontera will be available to view at Art Intersection until October 22nd.

 

Take a look at our walk-through of both shows!

Repairing a Jobo Processor Using the Frankenstein Method

Developing 8×10 film can be done a few ways, in a tray, tank dipping, canister, or the easiest way with a German made Jobo processor. Art Intersection proudly owns two Jobos, one graciously donated by a member of Art Intersection and one purchased used about five years ago.

We mainly use the Jobo to develop 8×10 film and when setting up for a film developing session we found  both, for different reasons, were non-functioning. So using the well known Frankenstein method of repair, both Jobos were disassembled, the best parts from both were cleaned, tested, and finally reassembled into one working unit. The working Jobo Processor also received the best “brain” labeled “Abby Normal” (unabashed reference to the movie Young Frankenstein).

Spares parts for repair of future failures were carefully packed away, and now we can get back to trouble free operations and again develop 8×10 film.

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.
