Curtis Wehrfritz
Curtis Wehrfritz January 27 – April 22, 2012

The series of work, entitled "Fluidrive" is focused on the use of ritual. I am interested in a lyric image that can be revisited by the viewer in the way one re-visits the feelings created in a song or prose. The daguerreotype is kind of a reliquary that you can hold in your hands and use like a prayer box. The fact that these "mirrors" last forever and have the ability to render subjects almost as a hologram puts us in a discussion with our own memories.” —Curtis Wehrfritz ...MORE.

Joni Sternbach
Joni Sternbach January 27 – April 22, 2012

Captured directly on the shoreline, Joni Sternbach’s luminous images possess the immediate quality of a singular print created then-and-there as she captures portraits of contemporary surfers in tintype, a 19th-century technique first used during the American Civil War and little changed since then. The large camera seems to slow down time, so that her subjects possess a distilled and timeless grace and beauty that seems so far removed from the energy, movement and animation we commonly associate with the surfing life...MORE.

Eugene Atget's Paris and Berenice Abbott's New York
Atget March 2 – May 2, 2012

More than an exhibition of architectural photography, this show examines the work of two artists who were inextricably linked to each other and to the development of modern photography. Berenice Abbott met Atget in 1925 when she was working as a darkroom assistant to Man Ray. Abbott was deeply and permanently affected by Atget’s images, saying later that there was a sudden flash of recognition - the shock of realism unadorned....MORE.

[hyphen] - AMERICANS:
Contemporary Tintype Portraits
Keliy Anderson-Staley
Anderson-Staley March 2 – May 2, 2012

These are portraits of contemporary Americans, but each one is made as a unique and un-reproducible tintype image using a technology and a technique from the middle of the nineteenth century. These subjects appear as if they have been transported from an earlier and more serious time when the making of an image was a slow, difficult and rare event; when the image was a landmark in the sitter’s life and one of very few images that might ever be made of that person in their life. In our modern society the ubiquity of images, camera phones and the digital “availability” of innumerable images has inured most of us to this potential “presence” that an image of others; or even of ourselves might possess. We have suspended our wonder....MORE.
