Out of the ordinary photo exhibit at CSUS
Photography: An Ironic History," an exhibition of processed
prints created by California State University, Sacramento
photography professors and students is on display today through
Sept. 13 in the University Union Gallery. Gallery hours are
10:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m., Monday - Friday and 5 - 8 p.m., Wednesdays
Adapting a 150-year-old process of chemical development in
which photographic prints were made with gold, silver, mercury
and even platinum, these artists are challenging the modern
electronics of the desktop and embracing the traditions of
chemistry in the darkroom.
The photos on display utilize an iron-based development process
that gives each piece the illusion of a textured surface.
The artists have hand-coated their photo papers to create
a more distinct tonal separation of colors, which gives each
piece a very personal touch.
Exhibiting photographers include Roger Vail, Mike Ware, Leisa
Barnes, Robert Hernandez, Steven Baudonnet, Sergio Saenz,
Paul Curtis, Sharon Kelley, Bill Jacobs, Tyghe Richardson
and Mark Thiesen.
An artist's reception will be held at 6 p.m., Thursday, Sept.
6 in the University Union Gallery.
