Here’s what she sent us:
Dear Art Lovers, Friends, Students & Colleagues,
I wanted to let you know about a great Pinhole Photography Workshop offered by the Carnegie Gallery in Dundas, October 4 & 5 (Saturday and Sunday), in conjunction with “Revenant,” an exhibition of work by internationally known photographer Dianne Bos. Dianne grew up in Dundas, and returns with her mysterious and beautiful large-scale photographs. This show will inaugurate our new “TBA” artspace in the Atrium of the Carnegie Gallery. The exhibition opens with a reception for the artist the Friday evening before the Workshop, October 3, 7-9:30pm. Come meet Dianne and see her wonderful work! Her exhibition continues through November 23.
As for the Workshop: We are fortunate that Dianne is able to offer a hands-on, 2 day Pinhole Photography Workshop at the Carnegie! Learn to make a pinhole camera out of almost anything, to shoot photos with it, and process the photos in our on-site darkroom! No experience necessary, but space is limited. To sign up, call (or stop by) the Carnegie Gallery,905-627-4265. Cost for the 2 days is $125 and includes all darkroom supplies. For more details about the workshop, see here.
I am happy to say that Dianne’s is the first of a number of shows I will be curating in the Carnegie’s new “TBA” (it stands for “The Barber Atrium”) artspace. This contemporary addition to the Carnegie’s 100-year old building, and 30 year old artist-run gallery, offers wonderful new possibilities for shows and programming, with its soaring, light-filled spaces. Hope to see you at the TBA, at this and future shows!
