Pinhole Photography Workshop & Exhibition

Our good friend Jody Joseph use sent us news of a fantastic show and workshop happening soon in a newly christened space inside Dundas’ Carnegie Gallery.

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!
