Light Sensitive is a exhibition featuring new work from local artists Claudia Danielson, Marvel Gregoire, Carol Inderieden and Paulette Meyers-Rich. It features photogravure, a photo-mechanical process whereby a copper plate is coated with a light-sensitive gelatin tissue which had been exposed to a film positive and then etched, resulting in a high quality intaglio print that can reproduce the detail and continuous tones of a photograph.
