The cyanotype is often the first process you will encounter in alternative/non-silver process photography. The reason for this is the simplicity in the technique and the likelihood you will make a successful print in a short period of time! This one-day workshop will be broken down into two parts, covering the basic history and introduction to the cyanotype process, toning your final prints (in case blue isn’t right for your subject, as well as explore alternative surfaces on which to print cyanotypes. No prior photographic knowledge is required. Each artist will take home 3 final cyanotype prints, along with an information packet on how to continue making cyanotypes at home, and a Hake brush for coating your paper.

For this installment of “Art Bites,” we look into the diptych of America Remembers/The Lives by Hernán Murno in the July open exhibit. Murno’s strong, graphic lines are reminiscent of early American Abstraction art of the 1940s. American Abstractionist work rose from a time of political unrest in response to WWII, and looking at Murno’s piece, you have the feeling that the aesthetic choice was not only inspired by the abstract movement but also reflective of today’s unique political tensions.
