Niniane Kelley will be presenting her work and discussing the historical photographic process of gum bichromate printing, which she uses in her own photography. Niniane, along with Brian Taylor, Hedwig Heerschop, and Rob Shaffer, will be giving an overview of gum bichromate printing and its current use by contemporary artists. If you live in or are planning to be in the San Francisco Bay Area tomorrow evening, this will be a fun, free, and informative event, open to everyone.

This event is at Gallery 291, on Friday, June 11, 2010, beginning at 6:30 pm.

Each New Chapter with Wonder
from Day 5 - May 26th, 2010, One Hundred Days 2010

Our other featured artist, Jessica Somers is working on an interesting and exciting project called One Hundred Days, in which she takes a photograph every day for one hundred days and posts it on her blog. The blog will create a narrative one photograph at a time. One Hundred Days is a summer collaborative project put into motion by artist volunteers. Jessica participated in the collaboration last summer and explored the tintype process.

from Day 19 - June 9th 2010, One Hundred Days 2010

Jessica will not be developing the work with her usual alternative processes, such as Ziatypes, or the traditional gelatin silver prints, but digital photography in color; however, despite Somers’ change of photographic medium, the images in the project so far are still resonating with her elegant and poetic style of photography.

Coming soon:  More information about Found and the artists that will be featured in the exhibition.
