Opening Reception: Friday, March 3, 6-9PM
On View: March 3-26, 2017 at Gravy Studio & Gallery
Of Metal & Light features three artists—Lisa Elmaleh, Sage Lewis, and Lucretia Moroni—who explore the elementary nature of photography, in both form and concept, demonstrating the significance of material and process in image creation and exemplifying the forward momentum of contemporary, chemistry-based practices.
Lisa Elmaleh, an alternative photographic artist from West Virginia, will be exhibiting silver prints made from glass plate negatives taken in the Everglades; Sage Lewis, a Vermont-based photographer, uses experimental techniques in carbon, silver, tintype, and cyanotype to explore the architecture of surface and space; and Lucretia Moroni, based out of New York and Italy, creates unique hand-made platinum/palladium prints on gold leaf.
In conjunction with the exhibit, The Halide Project is offering a program of free educational and hands-on events in the gallery and the city. *The full schedule of programming will be announced next week.
Of Metal & Light was made possible by a grant from the Penn Treaty Special Services District. Additional funding was provided by Project Stream, a grant initiative of the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts that is regionally administered by the Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance. Additional support for Project Stream is provided by PECO.
