Contemporary Explorations of Vintage Photography

Feb/March 2011

Featuring Cathy Becker, Laura Brent, Griffin Marsh and Rae Stimson

Featuring Cathy Becker, Laura Brent, Griffin Marsh and Rae Stimson. 

Becker and Marsh, the Wyoming contingent, (both are from Casper) have produced fine hand crafted works of art using various traditional printing techniques. The mastery of these difficult methods and the skill and detail is evident in the photographs.  Stimson, an artist from Boulder,  has produced small hand colored treasures, with deep narratives, and mysterious, almost eerie elements.  Brent, the director of Valhall Arts and curator of the exhibit, rounds out the exhibit with a unique look into classical techniques using pinhole cameras and other camera-less methods.
