The show will be on display at Gallery 270 in Westwood through January 4, 2022
|Please join us in-person as we welcome you along with a select group of the artists from the Monalog Collective. This group of like-minded stalwart artists, by choice, work in the “slow” historical processes of monochrome film photography to express their vision. They’ll be with us to share both the stories behind their images and the amazing variety of vintage processes they employ to create them, such as platinum/palladium, silver gelatin, carbon transfer, tintype, wet plate collodion tintype and ambrotype.Join Gallery 270 and the artists for some light refreshment and lively conversations about the specifics around photography and its beginnings as a pure analog and monochrome art. The show will be on display now through January 4, 2022 at Gallery 270 in Westwood.|
|About Monalog Collective: The artists employ 35mm and medium format rangefinders, medium format SLRs, and a range of wooden view cameras that produce images using 4×5, 8×10, 11×14, 8×20 or 14×17 inch negatives. All use different tools, films, chemistry and papers in the creation of their art, but share a love and unabiding commitment to black and white film and traditional printing processes. In fact, Monalog™, a new word derived from “monochrome” and “analog” was chosen since they don’t employ color film or any digital processes. They deliberately make no judgments about color or digital, but exist to give voice and support the vintage methods and processes they care deeply about to realize their work. |
If you missed last week’s Virtual opening where we got to discuss the show along with the artists who created the images. Watch the full webinar replay here.
Gallery 270 was founded with the careful curation of a group of artists [especially those unsung and emerging ones] creating beautiful photographic works that advance the medium through vintage processes while contributing modern sensibilities that add meaning to the enduring history of the medium. Equal importance is given to bring our audience outstanding values in one of a kind handcrafted works. Amazingly for these heady times in the art world, one can own one of these true originals that begin at $500, framing included!
We are thrilled to present the work of the artists of the Monalog Collective whose goals and Gallery 270’s, run perfectly parallel.
