New! Cyanotype workshop at Pondside Pulp and Paper, July 19, 2014

Photographic Cyanotypes on Handmade Paper
taught by Kevin Gray
Cyanotype session on July 19, 2014, Saturday, 10 am - 4 PM
Cost $75.
Hand Papermaking session on July 17, 2014, Thursday, 1 - 4 PM (optional)

Learn how to make photographic cyanotypes. Cyanotype is a 19th century process of making blue-colored prints on paper using sunlight (or UV light) for exposing and water for developing. In this class, students will learn how to print digital negatives from their photographs on the computer and then will coat and print on their own cyanotype paper.
Students should bring a flash drive or CD with photographs with which to make their digital negatives during the class.
Students who are unable to come to the papermaking session on July 17th may purchase the paper they need or bring their own for their prints.

Kevin Q. Gray received his MFA in Visual Arts from the Art Institute of Boston at Lesley University in 2009, and his BFA in Fine Art with a concentration in photography and painting from Hartwick College in 2001. Since that time his work has been included in many regional group and solo exhibitions, including a solo exhibition at the Fenimore Art Museum in Cooperstown in 2012. He has been awarded three grants from the New York Foundation for the Arts in support of his work. Kevin also assists local museums with educational exhibit planning and photography.
Kevin Gray uses a variety of processes in his fine art photographic work, from digital to film and alternative/antiquarian processes such as tintypes, liquid photographic emulsion, and Polaroid emulsion lifts. Explorations of nostalgia and memory are major recurrent themes in his work.
