The Studio:
Outside the Dark Room with Chris Curreri

Sunday 8 May 2022
1–4 pm

Connect with your creativity through these artist-led workshops.

The Studio is a place to meet innovative practicing artists from Kingston and across Canada, hear about their work and artistic practice and explore a creative project together.

Join artist Chris Curreri as he shares his process and experience creating work for the exhibition A Surrogate, A Proxy, A Stand-In and The Dark Room. Then work alongside Chris to make your own contact prints and photograms using the cyanotype process, collaged negatives and other media.

This program is made possible by the Iva Speers Fund for Art Education.
