Robert Calafiore and Joseph Minek: Color Darkroom Innovators
--Featuring West Coast Premiere Of Two Artist’s One-Of-A-Kind Color Prints Made With Analog Photographic Methods
September 21 - December 16, 2017

EXHIBITION OPENING: Ballard Night Out Art Walk -> Thursday 9/21 from 6-9pm
ARTIST TALK: Robert Calafiore Q & A -> Sat 9/23 from 2-3pm

GALLERY 1/1 is pleased to present the West Coast debuts of two innovative photographic artists, Hartford-based Robert Calafiore and Cleveland-based Joseph Minek. This two-person exhibition will feature new work by these artists who embrace process, material, and traditional darkroom techniques and each has elevated their studio-based craft into an exciting direction for photography. Calafiore employs his hand-built pinhole camera to create vivid large-scale one-of-a-kind chromogenic prints of abstracted still life tableaus constructed with mid-century modern glass objects. Minek also has a modernist abstract painterly quality to his work that he achieves by applying photographic chemistry on light sensitive color paper breaking all the traditional darkroom rules. He then assembles the paper elements into collaged mosaics of striking form and color.

Exhibition Dates:  September 21 – December 16, 2017

Gallery Reception: Thursday, September 21, 6-9 p.m. During the Ballard Night Out Art Walk
