Dodge and Burn

a juried members' exhibition

On view January 20 through February 27, 2022

Public reception: Friday, January 21, 2022, 6:00-9:00 PM (Snow date: January 28)

Dodging and burning are the ways photographers in the darkroom either lighten or darken different areas of an image, a technique that has since been modernized in digital editing software. The resulting effect is a heightened visual contrast. For this juried exhibition, artists capture elements of contrast--visual or thematic--within a single artwork. Juror Beth Kantrowitz (independent curator and art consultant, Co-Director of Drive-By Projects) selected thirty-two artists for exhibition. 

From the juror:

“Worcester has a special place in my heart. My daughter, Lily graduated from Clark University. When asked to jury Dodge and Burn for ArtsWorcester, I immediately reflected back on the many visits made there. As I looked through the over 130 submissions, I found myself rediscovering my affection for Worcester. 

"It is always a challenge to select work for an exhibition especially when so much of the work is good. I kept in mind light, dark, and contrast and selected the pieces. My hope is that while viewing the exhibition you can see and feel that too.”

Congratulations to these selected artists who will partake in this exhibition!
