An exhibition of the works of Meghann Ripenhoff. Riepenhoff exhibits a selection of camera-less images created in 2017 that record the essence of nature in its most elemental and fluctuating states. Riepenhoff works primarily in cyanotype, a process explored by Anna Atkins and other photographic pioneers in the 1840s. As is characteristic with this early photographic process, the artist hand-coats watercolor paper with light-sensitive chemicals. What is unique to Riepenhoff’s process is that these works, often of considerable size, are…

"Traces" features the works of Amy Theiss Giese and Keliy Anderson-Staley, two photographers whose processes and images question deep-rooted conceptions on what constitutes a photograph. Both photographers have not used camera or lens to create these abstract compositions. Their process of applying and manipulating photo chemicals, and the resulting final images, may be more akin to the language of painting. The splatters, drips, blooms, and marks in these assorted works are not unlike the movement and gestural brushwork seen in…
