Summer Gum Workshop!

When: July 22/23

Cost: $375 plus tax

Gum Bichromate is one of the simplest and cost effective ways of making permanent colour and black and white prints.

Spend two days in the darkroom with Bob playing with this unique process.

Using your supplied images, we will make printing negatives via inkjet materials and then spend the time coating and printing.

This is not a formal technical workshop, but rather a simple two days of getting a handle of one of our most beautiful printing processes. Gum Bichromate with pigment is one of the oldest photographic processes and with the advent of digital technology, we can make simple negatives that 20 years ago would be out of the reach for most photographers.

This workshop is not intended to create perfect colour density or portfolio work, but rather bring together photographers with a variety of background to play with pigments to create a smorgasbord of possibilities. This workshop is for beginner print makers, no prerequisite is required.

By being exposed to multiple prints and methods of combining colour and black white pigments, each participant can gage whether this is a viable process for their practice.

April 17-May 13

Opening Reception April 27 6pm-pm

PART 1

For his first exhibition as part of Scotiabank Contact Photography Festival, St John’s based artist Will Gill travelled to wildfire locations in Canada to capture the aftermath of the events. Through staged photography, using props and the charred remains of the environment as backdrop, Gill explores aspects of darkness and hope, transcendence and the human condition.

Q: Tell me about this new body of work, that you will be exhibiting for the first time as part of Scotiabank Contact Photography Festival.

A: Part of my interest as an artist is exploring alien environments that are stark and somehow “in between”. In other words, places where it is uncertain to know what has happened before or what is going to happen after. When I heard about the forest fire in Fort McMurray in May of 2016, I decided that a post-wildfire landscape was such a place. I bought my plane ticket and travelled there in early july 2016, two months after the fire.
