Presenting four women photographers: Heidi Kirkpatrick, Anna Daedalus, Jayna Conkey and Jan Cook. In conjunction with Portland Photo Month!

Heidi Kirkpatrick’s Garments of Light and related works are cyanotype photograms on vintage women’s clothing and linens. Her deep Prussian blue images embody slow, careful time—both through her use of historical photographic processes and through layering her own handwork over that of seamstresses and embroiderers from earlier generations.

Jan Cook’s Bright Ideas series of distinctive light bulbs punningly marries form and content. She employs the alternative processes of photograms and chromoskedasic painting to document the utilitarian beauty and creeping obsolescence of historic lighting technology.

Jayna Conkey’s Withdrawn series documents mutilated library books from around the country, transforming their pages into new, multi-layered images. Her resulting photographs of anonymous interventions embody the twin responses of censorship and voyeurism.

Anna Daedalus’ Enfolded series employs folding, sculpting and re-photographing to mimic the sheltering concavity of riparian hollows, wetland and woodland. It responds to the enveloping plenitude and multiplicity of the living world.

5 pm – 9 pm @ 1715 SE Spokane St.
