Eastend Arts Council: Painting with Light

Phyllis Schwartz and Edward Peck are two land-based photographers working on new ideas at the Wallace Stegner House. They will begin with a brief slide show of their previous and current work. Phyllis will talk about her photography without cameras, share some discoveries of photography by early botanists and explain how this applies to her work. Edward will talk about the painterly aspects of contemporary photography, explain how he creates images that reflect his visual experience, and illustrate how his work has moved away from the chemistry of the darkroom into pigment painting. Their presentation invites discussion and questions.
