The Handmade Photograph (at Open Shutter Gallery)

I am very proud to have been invited to show with this group.

January 23 - March 4, 2015

Open Shutter Gallery
735 Main Avenue
Durango, CO 81301

Reception is Friday, January 23
5 - 8 pm

I will have framed prints as well as prints in mats at the show.  They are small.  They are priced to sell (because more people should have hand-made prints in their collections, and not just inkjet or drug store processed snap shots)

Much of the appeal of a show like this is when the viewer recognizes the care given to each print, the fact that the artist put his/her hand on each print, brought it to life, and there was a moment in which the image emerged through work and direct contact with the process; a moment of recognition that the image is special, unique, something that is more than an image.

Additionally, a show like this hosts a variety of printing methods.  Some techniques are very involved and difficult, while others are quite accessible to most people.
