Karen Stentaford is an artist and educator living in Sackville, NB where she is the photography technician and lecturer at Mount Allison University’s Fine Arts department. This survey exhibition of her medium and large format photographs includes works from the past decade – images that often employ alternative processes such as the vintage wet-plate collodion process. Her work investigates ideas of place, absence and memory influenced by the Newfoundland landscape of her childhood.

Curated by John Leroux and organized by the Beaverbrook Art Gallery.

September 21, 1:00- 4:00 pm: The Original Blueprint: Cyanotype workshopBefore digital photography, before Polaroid, before print film, before everything you know about film photography, there was cyanotype – a process dating back to 1842. In this hands-on workshop participants will use the sun’s rays to expose photographs without a camera. Chemistry preparation, coating surfaces, exposing and developing images will be covered. The process is immediate, the images are blue, and the results are magical. $30 non-members, $25 members. Registration is required.
