“The Antiquarian Image: An Exhibition of 19th Century Photographic Processes,” at the St. Tammany Art House in Covington, which runs through April 4, features the work of 10 photographers using early photographic processes.
Artists include from Europe, Alex Sapienza, of Dublin, Ireland; Dennis Ziliotto, of Monselice, Italy; and Borut Peterlin, of Dolenjske Toplice, Slovenia; and national artists, Michelle Smith-Lewis, of Seattle; Euphus Ruth, of Greenville, Mississippi; Scott Anton, of Solon, Maine; Jeanne Wells, of Turner, Maine; and from Louisiana, David Armentor, of New Orleans; Robert Dutruch, of Bush; and Bruce Schultz, of Lafayette.
The opening event on Saturday featured a demonstration of the tintype process by Armentor. Tintype portraits were made of guests using a view camera and developed on site. His demonstration was a preview to his Tintype Workshop scheduled for March 28, and three photo classes in conjunction with the exhibit. ä For more photos and details, see Tammany To Do on Page 3G.
