The Hartford Art School’s Photo Club presents “Different Strokes for Different Folks” February 21 through March 3, 2013 in the Silpe Gallery’s north gallery.
The show will include works from:
The opening reception will take place on Friday, February 22nd, from 5-7 p.m. Photographic prints will be available for sale. Proceeds will benefit Photo Club members and future club events.
Opening at the same time in the Silpe’s south gallery is a selection of Robert Calafiore’s pinhole photographs from an exhibition recently shown at ArtSpace Torrington titled “Through a Looking Glass, Darkly”.
“Through a Looking Glass, Darkly” features Robert Calafiore’s one-of-a-kind photographs created with a pinhole camera and traditional light-sensitive color paper. The images are exposed to 30,000 watts of light for 30 minutes and then processed in a darkroom. There are no film negatives and no digital technology is used. The vibrant color of each photograph is achieved through the artist’s arrangement of objects and use of lighting.
“Through a Looking Glass, Darkly” will be on display through March 3, 2013.
The Photo Club will host a series of events in the Silpe Gallery to correspond with the exhibition. All events are free and open to the public.
