Shane Balkowitsch: Wet Plate Photography
August 5 – September 11, 2014 (dates tentative)
Bismarck-based artist Shane Balkowitsch employs one of the earliest forms of photography, wet plate collodion, to create emotive and symbolic portraits of friends and family. Using “some 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.
