The members of the North Texas Alternative Process Group aren’t like other photographers; they’re not interested in producing traditional, digital photographic prints like you see in many art exhibits, publications and websites. Instead, they’re looking for the nontraditional, the experimental, the avant-garde. One of them, Judy Sherrod, even builds her own cameras.
On July 21, you can visit Sun to Moon Gallery, meet these interesting photographers and see their show, “Antiquarian Avant-Garde Photography,” running through August 18. This will be the first exhibit ever to feature artists independent from Sun to Moon Gallery’s represented photographers, and promises to be unique and exciting to amateurs and photographiles alike.
The group will be exhibiting pieces that utilize unconventional and antique photographic methods, including historical processes that date back to the birth of photography and inkjet printing on fabric. The artists featured in the show are Peter J. Blackburn, Amy Holmes George, Loli Kantor, Frank Lopez, Kathy Lovas, Brian J. Magnuson, Rachel Rushing, Susan Sponsler and Judy Sherrod.
The photographers will be in attendance on July 21 from 5 to 8 p.m. and will also hold a gallery talk to speak on their particular processes on Aug. 18 from 2 to 4 p.m. Sun to Moon Gallery is located at 1515 Levee St. in the Design District.
