      Exploring Chemigrams

      Exploring Chemigrams  Join us for a day of exploring and experimenting with Chemigrams, creating  random, abstract photographic imagery. Invented by Pierre Cordier in 1956, he claimed chemigrams to be "most likely, the ultimate adventure of gelatin silver bromide." Learn how to incorporate painting, drawing, and printmaking processes into traditional darkroom paper through the camera-less chemigram process. Instructor Bridget Conn will give an overview of how chemigrams work, demonstrate a variety of tools and methods to explore mark-making, and give guidance on how to achieve control over value, color, and texture.  Bridget Conn earned a BFA in Studio Art from Tulane University in 2000, and an MFA from the University of Georgia in 2003, focusing in photography, mixed media and installation. In 2009, Bridget moved to Asheville, NC where she taught at several colleges, in addition to working as an arts writer, designer, and independent artist.  Her association with the Phil Mechanic Studios Public Darkroom blossomed into the creation of The Asheville Darkroom, a non-profit art educational facility which she founded in 2012 and served as Executive Director and primary instructor through May 2016. Bridget joined the faculty of Armstrong State University in Savannah, GA as Assistant Professor of Art in August 2016, focusing on darkroom photography. Her current artwork explores the potential of photography as a chemical and physical medium through the process of chemigrams.  A minimum of 5 participants required for workshop to proceed, workshop limited to 8 participants.
