On May 31, as part of the May Artist Talk Series sponsored by the Flower City Arts Center, I delivered a short lecture on my journey as a kallitype print maker. It was a great experience, and I was thrilled to be a part of it and to share this process that I really love!
During the talk, I showed some of my past alternative process work leading up to my focus on kallitypes, plus I illustrated (through GIFs) the kallitype process, and shared recent work. I spoke for roughly 40 min and then there was another 20 or so minutes of Q&A.
Here is the link if you missed it and would like to watch:

Just a quick reminder that this upcoming Sunday, May 31, is my Artist Talk, which is the final talk for the month-of-May-Sunday-Afternoon-Artist-Talk series sponsored by the Department of Photography and Digital Arts at the Flower City Arts Center.
We will start promptly at 1:00 pm Eastern Time.For those of you in other time zones: this is 10:00 am Pacific Time / 11:00 am Mountain Time / 12:00 pm Central Time / 18:00 pm British Summer Time / 19:00 pm Central Europe Summer Time.
My plan is to present for 30-40 min, show new work, talk about the kallitype process, what inspires me, and my current projects. Then we’ll have a few minutes for Q&A. We should be finished within an hour. I’ve really enjoyed the other artist talks in the series, and am excited to share my work and this process with you!
During the talk, I’m also hoping to show a few short kallitype process videos I put together on Youtube. I’m not confident the audio will work through Zoom, and depending on your connection the video may not be super clear, so I’m including this links here too in case you want to watch before, during or after!
Welcome to May! It’s definitely spring here in Rochester, per the calendar, and according to the flowers….but winter is still trying to keep it’s icy hold with flurries, overnight freezes, and more dull gray skies. Despite all that, one bright spot is that more and more arts organizations, museums, educational institutions and galleries are getting creative with ways for us all to engage with the arts online!
For example, the Department of Photography and Digital Arts at the Flower City Arts Center has organized this series of upcoming virtual Artist Talks for the month of May:
Sunday, May 10, 1:00 to 2:00 pm EST – Fernando Muller (current FCAC artist in residence; this one already happened, but when the Youtube link is available, I’ll update this post)
Sunday, May 17, 1:00 to 2:00 pm EST – Linda Van Artsdalen (fiber and alternative photographic process artist – AMAZING work)
Saturday, May 23, 1:00 to 2:00 pm EST – Jonathan Merritt (current FCAC alternative photographic process artist and teacher – and the person who taught me kallitypes!)
Sunday, May 31, 1:00 to 2:00 pm EST – me! I’ll be talking about my kallitypes and showing current work.
Each talk runs roughly an hour with approximately 30 min for the artist’s presentation and then time for Q&A. They are also being recorded, and I’ll make another post with the Youtube links once the series concludes.
I’m excited to be one of the presenters, rounding out the month with the final talk for May! Please mark your calendars and plan to join me!
