Photo Transfer Workshop

Where: HQ, 315 E. Marion St.
When: Thursday, March 21
Time: 6:30-8:00pm

Photo transfer, or solvent transfer, was developed by iconic artist Robert Rauschenberg. Rauschenberg first experimented with the transfer technique in the 1950’s. After soaking the printed image in a solvent, Rauschenberg placed the image face down on paper and transferred it with a series of hatch marks created by rubbing a dry pen nib across the back of the image. The results are edgeless units bound by the artist’s mark making.

Lancaster artist and teacher Kathy Moss-Reeves has been using a similar process to create original art work for more than four decades. Join Kathy for this unique workshop and create a piece of your own on paper, copper, brass, wood, or other workable surface. The resulting picture transfers are otherworldly. They appear on the surface like gauzy memories from another time. They also make fabulous gifts!

*Please bring a workable surface and at least two laser printed pictures or magazine/newspaper images (Color or B/W). Pictures that produce the best results have areas of contrast, light and dark, and no writing (transferred letters read backward!).

Friends/significant others invited. Only 20 slots available!
