Elemental Nature: Non-Silver Photographic Prints by Kelly Joslin
August 3 - 29, 2011
Glen Helen Atrium Gallery is showing “Elemental Nature: Non-Silver Photographic Prints by Kelly Joslin, from August 3 - 29, 2011. Joslin creates expressive and painterly self-portraits through the use of unusual photographic processes. The public is invited to meet the artist at the opening reception on Sunday, August 7 from 2 - 4 pm. The artist will talk about her work at 3 pm.
Joslin, an associate professor and chair of the art department at Sinclair Community College, is creating compositions fusing images of nature with self-portraiture. The use of multiple positive and negative images allows Joslin to compose photographs that move beyond mere representation. This dynamic approach – combined with multiple non-silver processes within a single print - blurs the line between photography and painting.
The Gallery is located in the Glen Helen Building at 405 Corry Street in Yellow Springs. Show hours are 9:30 am to 4:30 pm Monday through Friday and 10 am to 4 pm on Saturdays and Sundays. Admission is free. Artwork will be available for purchase with proceeds supporting the Glen Helen Nature Preserve.

The Glen Helen Atrium Gallery showcases the work of emerging local and regional visual artists in twelve exhibits each year. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of art goes to the Glen Helen Association, a non-profit organization whose mission is to support preservation and programs at Glen Helen and its 1,000-acre nature preserve.
