Photographers used to spend much of their time in the dark, processing film and developing pictures. Many have come into the light by switching to digital image-making but the mystique of the darkroom lingers. This group exhibition is a tribute to the tools of the trade of wet-process, darkroom photography.

Join us for a gallery talk by Santa Fe artist Robert Stivers who will talk about his unique photograms made with his darkroom developing tray, Friday, February 6, 2015, at 5:30 p.m.
