April 22, 2013

Hartwick Student Edward Newman '14 was recently selected to exhibit his pinhole negative print "Artroom Skyline" in a pinhole photography exhibit. The show, which will take place at the RayKo Photo Center in San Francisco, California, will run from April 28 to May 25, 2013.

Hartwick College Professor of Art Katharine Kreisher's spring term 2013 Photo II class worked for nearly a month on an extended pinhole photography project in order to answer a call for entries sent out by Rayko Photo Center Gallery Director Ann Jastrab '93.  Other students from the class who submitted their work for review include Keir Alexander '13, Elizabeth Schantz '15, Brewington Bryant '14 and Travis Day '15.

"Artroom Skyline" by Edward Newman '14

From these submissions and more, Newman was selected to exhibit his print, "Artroom Skyline". The exhibition is scheduled to begin with workshops and events to celebrate Worldwide Pinhole Day on April 28, 2013.

"I love being active on campus and meeting new people" said Newman. "I took photography in my senior year of high school and decided to take photography at Hartwick because I wanted to further expand my knowledge of photography and techniques. I usually use my father's Canon A-1 35 mm to take pictures."

According to its website, "Since 1991, RayKo Photo Center has provided traditional darkroom rentals and educational resources for photographers. ... RayKo is the largest public photographic community center west of the Mississippi. RayKo's goal is to provide a brick and mortar space where photographers have affordable access to a pro lab environment, and to foster artistic and professional development. [Their] commitment to the photographic community is to celebrate a broad range of photographic techniques and make them accessible to everyone through rentals, services, and workshops."
