Exhibition will open on Thursday
URBANA — The "Photo-Secession" exhibition featuring works by local, regional and international photographers will open Thursday at the Urbana Museum of Photography, 122A W. Main St.
The opening reception will be at 7 p.m. Saturday. The show will remain on view through May 7.
Lisa Janes, curator at the museum, said the museum, directed by founder Lyosha Svinarski, plans to make "Photo-Secession" an annual exhibition. Its theme is inspired by the pictorial aesthetics of the original Photo-Secession movement led by Alfred Stieglitz in 1902.
"In the spirit of that movement, the represented work secedes from the ubiquitous digital standard of our time," Janes said in a news release. "It is an investigation into a variety of analog printing methods, ranging from carefully crafted tintypes to painterly gum bichromates to the warm, expansive tones of palladium prints."
The museum's regular hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesdays and Fridays and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturdays. For more information on the museum, visit http://www.facebook.com/UrbanaMuseumOfPhotography.
