Light Sensitive 2015 – Celebrating Images from the Darkroom
A Juried Exhibition Celebrating Images from the Darkroom
Art Intersection presents our fourth 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.
The Art Intersection curatorial staff will select three artists from Light Sensitive to show additional work during the exhibition running from December 12, 2015 to January 9, 2016.
