NEW ALCHEMY—Lexington Camera Club 2015
In early 2014, art historian James Birchfield gave a lecture on the original Lexington Camera Club. Once compromised of renowned photographers, such as Van Deren Coke, Ralph Eugene Meatyard, and Robert C. May, the club met once a month from 1936 until 1972, concluding when Meatyard passed. After the lecture to a sizable crowd at the University of Kentucky Art Museum, a number of photographers gathered together and resolved to resurrect the dormant club. One year later the re-born Lexington Camera Club is preparing for its first group show in 42 years. Entitled “New Alchemy—Lexington Camera Club 2015,” the exhibit opens at Georgetown College’s Anne Wright Wilson Gallery on September 23rd and runs through October 30th. Dr. Birchfield will participate in a panel discussion at 6 pm on September 24, before the opening reception.
The exhibit will be a part of the Louisville Photo Biennial, and for the first time, will feature satellite exhibits in other Kentucky cities, including Bardstown, Lexington, Frankfort, and Georgetown, as well as Hanover College in Indiana. The Georgetown College exhibit will include over 75 prints by 30 photographers who embrace the old camera club’s spirit of experimentation, whether it be with new techniques or antique processes used to reveal the world anew. Current camera club members work in a variety of methods, from wet-plate colloidal glass negatives to remote-controlled, high dynamic range digital imagery.
Exhibiting photographers: Dobree Adams, Ruth Adams, Joseph Rey Au, Robert Bruner, Bones Carpenter, Angel Clark, David Coyle, Rob Dickes, Frank Döring, Tom Eblen, Tom Fielder, Jerry Freeman, Chuck Fowler, Carey Neal Gough, Nori Hall, Garrett Hansen, Helena Hau, Marcia Lamont Hopkins, Mick Jeffries, Susan King, Geoff Maddock, Guy Mendes, Nadezda Nikolova, Steve Pavey, Lee Ann Paynter, Greg Reynolds, Maryjean Wall, Melissa Watt, Ken Weaver, and Nicole White.
