One of the highlights of the evening festivities at Photolucida, were the art openings in the Pearl District of Portland on Saturday Evening. The Blue Sky Gallery space is big and beautiful, with a number of exhibition rooms featuring Alberlardo Morell (who also gave a terrific lecture at the Portland Art Museum), Alexis Pike, Terry Toedtemeier, and Andy Freeberg.
Susan Seubert had a fantastic show at the Froelick Gallery featuring a grid of unique ambrotypes of nests (that are also available as large lambada prints). This was an example where the subject matter so perfectly fit the photographic technique. Also exhibited were a number of different series, including Bomb in a Box (digital pigment print on tissue paper, encaustic wax, and lead) and Dress (tintypes). Susan divides her time between her commercial and fine art work. Her fine art web site is full of thought provoking work, presented in a way to engage and enchant the viewer.
