Spindleworks is lucky to have professional artists on staff. It is what makes the connection so authentic between them and the Spindleworks artists. They bring their experience and know how into the studios and help to expand the program following the interests of the artists. While Angie Devenney is not facilitating in the studios, she is busy pursuing a career as a professional photographer. Over the past two years at Spindleworks, she has been building a photography program. This has taken the form of teaching skills of digital photography, leading field trips to shoot, exposing the artists to photographers, and helping them to submit their work to exhibits. While digital photography is the norm these days, anyone interested in the art form knows the magic of the darkroom. Angie has been working to bring this magic to the Spindleworks artists. We have been collecting darkroom equipment over the past year, and this spring started renovating a small room at Spindleworks. This month the first forays into darkroom experimentation began. We started with photograms and then moved on to developing black and white film! Stay tuned to see the first results of the artists printing from their own negatives.
