2008 Westmoreland Art Nationals

I had a Polaroid emulsion transfer accepted into this year’s Westmoreland Art Nationals. It’s actually four transfers together on one piece of watercolor paper. I didn’t do many of these; at the time I was just experimenting with the process and had access to a Daylab Copy System. I had done direct Polaroid image transfers a few years back using film and photos straight out of my dad’s old Polaroid that he had brought back from Korea when he was stationed there in the army (1959-ish). But this time I wanted to use copies of 35mm photos that I had already taken.

This is the piece that was accepted. It’s called “Stephie’s Hands.” The show ran May 31 through June 13.
