Wet Plate Collodion Prints by Aspen Hochhalter

In a new effort to raise funds for educational programming for the galleries, we now encourage our exhibiting artists to bring in small art pieces to sell during their shows

Aspen Hochhalter is showing smaller prints of her huge photographs on view, and selling them for $25.These were made with an antique technique called Wet Plate Collodion, which involved priming a glass plate with a chemical solution and capturing an image of a subject by exposing the plate to light, thereby creating an “ambrotype.” Aspen’s ambrotypes of these and the larger images are also on view in the exhibition. They capture minute details in Natalie Abrams’ encaustic wax sculptures, also on view.

(these, as well as small encaustic sculptures by Natalie Abrams, will also be available during our Friends & Family Market!)
