  • “THE ANTIQUARIAN IMAGE” AT STAA: through April 4, St. Tammany Art Association, 320 N. Columbia St. “The Antiquarian Image, An Exhibition of 19th Century Photographic Processes” is an international exhibition of works by 10 photographers. Although digital imagery is now the standard in the 21st century, the photographic image has its roots in the early 19th century and reaches as far back as the Renaissance era with the camera obscura. More advanced printing techniques and processes were developed-ambrotype, tintype, photogravure and albumen, and a few artists have remained dedicated to creating images using such techniques from the dawn of the photographic process. In coordination with the exhibition, STAA has scheduled hands-on workshops that include a Lumen Print Workshop, sponsored with Lost Hills Studio, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, March 21. Cost, $95, includes supplies. Instructor, Natasha Sanchez. Tintype Print Workshop, 1 to 5 p.m. Saturday, March 28. Cost $195, includes supplies. Instructor, David Armentor.
