This guest exhibition features artist William Dunniway, an internationally recognized master of historical photographic processes.
In the early 1990s, Dunniway was one of a handful of working artists in the world using cameras and chemical processes from the pre-American Civil War era. Along with Dunniway, these individuals mentored artists such as Sall Mann and Ian Ruther, leading to the revival of these techniques in the contemporary art world.
His work has appeared internationally and is held in many private collections. On display during the opening will be a period 18" x 22" mammoth plate camera as well as an example of tintype and glassplate negatives produced by Dunniway.
Curated by Anthony Caltabiano, MFA.
Opening Reception: Tuesday, January 21, 6:00-8:00pm
