Art Reception: “Tintypes: A Community Portrait”

February 4, 2018

We invite you to join us for an Art Reception on Tuesday, October 16, from 5 – 7 pm, for light fare, conversation with the artist, and a special installation/peek into how the works are created. This event is drop-in and open to the public, no need to RSVP.

Artist: Leah Sobsey and Tim Telkamp | Exhibit Title: TinTypes: A Community Portrait | Exhibit Description: This exhibition is a collaborative project by artists Leah Sobsey and Tim Telkamp. Leah Sobsey and Tim Telkamp were the recipients of the first Click! Photography Festival PIC Grant. The goal of the project, Tintypes: A Community Portrait was to engage with the community and bring people together through the wet plate collodion photography process. The idea was similar to that of the bookmobile or the ice cream truck where people come out of their houses and on to the street to engage with each other and in the process, create a large community portrait. | Exhibit Dates: August 2018 – February 2019

Can’t join us for the event? Call the Foundation to schedule a drop-in viewing of the work in the gallery at 919.474.8370.
