Exhibition - Souls of Silver: Wet Plate Photography

August 5 – September 11, 2014

- Bismarck based artist Shane Balkowitsch employs one of the earliest forms of photography, wet plate collodion, to create emotive and symbolic portraits. Using chemicals and hand-cut pieces of glass, Balkowitsch’s portraits quite literally bring this historic process “back to life.” This exhibition is sponsored by the North Dakota Art Gallery Association with support from the North Dakota Council on the Arts. 

- Cyanotype Workshop with Su Legatt, August 28, 4:00 pm
Create your own cyanotype and contribute your print to the exhibition!

- Wet Plate Collodion Demonstration with Shane Balkowitsch, September 11, 1:00 – 3:00 pm
Join featured artist Shane Balkowitch for an outdoor, interactive demonstration of the wet plate collodion process. Sitters will chosen at random; thrown your name in the hat for a chance to have your plate made! 

Closing Reception September 11, 5:00 – 7:00 pm, artist talk beginning at 5:30 pm
