Adjunct faculty member (and COD Photo Program alum) Gayle Stevens is January’s featured artist in the Wright Art Center Gallery at Delta State University in Mississippi in an exhibition entitled “Small Plates.”
Called the “Alt Process Queen” by her students, Gayle has taught alternative processes for nine years in COD’s Photo Program, along with other classes. Her photographs are produced using wet plate collodion, a 19th century photographic process that involves complex chemistry and produces images of subtle individuality and beauty.
Gayle has been exhibited widely across the United States, most recently in “Alternative Processes Competition” at Soho Photo Gallery in New York and “Self-Searching: The Art of Self-Portaiture” at PhotoPlace Gallery in Middlebury, Vermont. She was awarded a spot in “Critical Mass Top 50” in 2010 as well as being awarded First Place in Light Leaks Magazine for “Holgascapes.” Other awards abound as well as being a published presence in Diffusion Magazine, The Center for Alternative Photography’s Online Journal, Shots Magazine, and The Holga Darkroom.
An opening reception will be held from 5-7 p.m., Thursday, Jan. 20, in the Gallery. The exhibit will be available for viewing through Feb. 18.
