NEW ALCHEMY—Lexington Camera Club 2015
In early 2014, art historian James Birchfield gave a lecture on the original Lexington Camera Club. Once comprising of renowned photographers 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.
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, and Hanover College in Indiana. The Georgetown College exhibit will include over 50 prints by 25 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.
Among the photographers included in the show: Ruth Adams, David Coyle, Nori Hall, Melissa Wallace, Bones Carpenter, Frank Döring, Angel Clark, Nadezda Nikolova, Mick Jeffries, Guy Mendes, Susan King, Jerry Freeman, Marsha Hopkins, Chuck Fowler, Greg Reynolds, Robert Bruner, Tom Eblen, Geoff Maddock, Carey Neal Gough, Rob Dickes, Nicole White, Lee Ann Paynter, Dobree Adams, and Garrett Hansen. Dr. Birchfield will participate in a panel discussion at 6 pm on September 24, before the opening reception.
