Magic Show:
Photographs by Carol Golemboski

. . .

Thursday, Jun. 6 – Friday, Aug. 2
Opening Reception / Thursday, Jun. 6, 6:30 – 8:30 pm

While photography is the only medium with a reputation for recording “truth,” it’s also notorious for its ability to deceive. In Magic Show: Photographs by Carol Golemboski, the photographer is a performer, one who creates tricks behind the curtain of the darkroom. This exhibition features images from Golemboski’s series on magic, as well as new work that utilizes vintage expired paper, alternative toning and photograms.

There’s a boom of interest in gender, identity, queerness, and the study of these subjects. It’s often exemplified by a kind of idealized sexuality. The work of n e w f l e s h, an exhibition curated by Efrem Zelony-Mindell, refuses to view a person as disparate or specific to parts or expectations. Behind the flesh, there is more than a man or a woman. There’s a person—a human—full of so many parts, feelings, and ideas.

Members’ Show 

. . .

Thursday, Nov. 21 – Thursday, Jan. 2, 2020
Opening Reception / Thursday, Nov. 21, 6:30 – 8:30 pm

An annual tradition, the Members’ Show serves as a valuable showcase for our members’ work, all while commemorating their contributions to our organization. Each member of The Light Factory can submit one piece, which must be matted, framed, and ready to hang. In our opinion, it’s the best possible way to close out the calendar year.
