Postponed: PRC Afternoon Nights with Jesseca Ferguson

This event has been postponed. Please keep an eye on our newsletter for updates.

 

Join us for this special PRC Nights event, in the afternoon! Artist Jesseca Ferguson works with pinhole photography, 19th century photo processes and collage and will be presenting her work in an informal setting inspiring discussion. Along with her work there will be presentations by three members of the PRC working with similar alternative photographic techniques.

Of her art Ferguson says, “I work with handmade photography and collage in a studio filled with old books and other oddments. Interacting synergistically, these objects enable me to continue my ongoing investigation of the photograph as a story written with light – a story that may, in fact, never have happened.” Her pinhole photographs and collaged “photo objects” have been included in solo and group exhibitions internationally and is widely collected. Ferguson has received grants to support her projects from the LEF Foundation; Polaroid Corporation, and the Trust for Mutual Understanding, and others. She lives and works in Boston, MA, and currently teaches at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Tufts University.

Three PRC members will be sharing work along with Ferguson:
