2017 in Review

2017 saw us renaming the main gallery, changing from the Dylan Ellis Gallery to the Connections Gallery. This name change reflects our mandate to “connect” artists, curators and gallerists.

Thank you to all of the photographers who showed such an amazing variety of images.

Advanced Alt Workshop

Bob Carnie/ Gum Bichromate

December 27-30 2017

1840 Danforth Avenue, Toronto

This workshop is aimed at those people who have a desire to learn in a welcoming atmosphere how to make wonderful permanent prints and have:

-Taken a workshop with us before

-Can show that they exhibit the right knowledge base to not slow down the other printers.

The goal of this workshop will be to make a series of 15×20 prints on paper that are multiple layered images, Gum over Palladium, Duotone Gum, or Tri Tone Gum Bichromate. Your choice of process and look rather than teacher directed.

We will stay with this image size to maximize workflow for the course of four days. This size is a traditional aspect ratio for portfolio prints.

The hours of this workshop are from 8 am – 5 :30pm each day with group dinners considered after each long day.

Service Spotlight: Contemporary Printing

bob image 2.jpg

What does the contemporary photo world look like right now? 

Inkjet technology is king right now, we see this process everywhere and at our lab we use the Canon line of printers with unprecedented 12 ink pigment sets, that actually have a colour palette beyond a typical RA4 print we would see with our lambda, or others chromira printing devices.

We are seeing people push the envelope with capture devices (Iphone) and these mirrorless digital capture devices that amaze me each time I open up a file to make a print.
