This Friday, September 11, the Ackland Art Museum - on the campus of the Univesrity of North Carolina at Chapel Hill - is hosting a talk by photographer (and Migration favorite) Alan Dehmer as part of its Out of the Studio program - the Ackland's ongoing intiative to make connections between the musuem and the rich tradition of talented artists from the Chapel Hill community.
Alan will talk about his gum bichromate photographic printing process - a process developed in the 19th century. Leave your digital cameras and computers at home for this one.
This special programing is also part of the Ackland's successful Art After Dark extended hours. Alan will speak from 6:00 and 7:00 pm. The museum will be open until 9:00 pm. And there will be a cash bar, light refreshments and a DJ to spice up the evening.
