Lisa Kessler, The Nutcrackers from the series Seeing Pink.
This eight-week class focuses on producing a project photographed in the material world. Emphasis is placed on content and the process of articulating one's own vision- whether fine art or documentary-and honing one's individual voice. Participants may work on an on-going project, or begin a new one. The class will include group and individual critiques, and culminate in a final edited sequence of photographs.
The Doors of Perception: Vision and Innovation in Alternative Processes
Featuring work by Ron Cowie, Jesseca Ferguson, Gretjen Helene, Scott McMahon, Mark Osterman and France Scully Osterman, and Jerry Spagnoli

Opening Reception: Thursday, February 7, 2012, 6:30-8pm

Ron Cowie, Ulysses. 
The Doors of Perception: Vision and Innovation in Alternative Processes showcases contemporary photographers working with a diverse range of historic, or alternative, photographic processes, such as pinhole photography, tintype, cyanotype, platinum printing, and gum bichromate, as well as liquid emulsion. Employing these photographic processes from the past to create unique handmade photographic objects, the artists in this exhibition reinvest the photograph with what critic Walter Benjamin feared would vanish in the age of reproduction: the "aura" of a work of art.

An Evening at the PRC with Francine Weiss and Ron Cowie

$35 General Public | $25 PRC Members
Online registration will be available soon. Please email to reserve a spot. 

Join us in the PRC Gallery for an exclusive discussion of The Doors of Perception: Vision and Innovation in Alternative Processes, curated by Francine Weiss and featuring work by Ron Cowie. Weiss will explore the show's themes and address the special concerns of collecting alternative process works. Cowie, a master platinum printer and instructor at the New England School of Photography, will discuss how his images celebrate the temporality of life and examine the permanence of change and his techniques for producing prints.

The Space in Between 

This exhibition will relocate in late January from the PRC Gallery to the Boston Properties Atlantic Wharf Gallery 

January 28 - March 22, 2013
Opening reception and artists/curator talk: Thursday, January 31, 2013,
6-8 pm

Satellite Exhibition at Boston Properties Atlantic Wharf Gallery
290 Congress Street, Boston, MA  
The Space in Between features artwork that focuses on societal built environments in urban settings. The images capture supposedly empty or vacant scenes in public spaces where humans are present without being pictured. The very absence of human subjects forces the viewer to contemplate the space in between these human-made structures. While firmly rooted in the 21st century, these photographs also portray a timeless feel, as if the artists froze the frame at the initial moment of abandonment, preserving a particular constructed expression of culture for generations to come.
