Wet-plate collodion demo Sat., Jan. 7 at Homespace gallery

NOPA members Bruce Schultz and Euphus Ruth will demonstrate the antique art of wet-plate collodion print-making on Saturday, Jan. 7 at the Homespace gallery in New Orleans’ St. Roch neighborhood. Also more than worth noting: After the demonstration, attendees may have their portraits made and printed in the mid-19th Century collodion style, one strongly associated with images from the American Civil War.

Photographers Jenny Sampson and S. Gayle Stevens will also be on hand for the last day the gallery’s “‘tintype’ show,” to discuss their recent work in the same medium.

The event will begin at noon on Saturday and run through 5 p.m.

The Homespace gallery is located at 1128 St. Roch Ave. For more information on the demonstration, you may call (504) 418-8237.
