We’re excited to announce the addition of France Scully Osterman to the featured speakers/worskhop presenters at this years f295 Symposium in Pittsburgh, PA [US] May 29 – June 1, 2008!
France Scully Osterman is an artist, and a guest scholar at George Eastman House. She teaches private tutorials and workshops in the Scully & Osterman 19th century skylight studio, specializing in wet-plate collodion, salted paper and albumen printing.
France will be offering a 2 day collodion workshop called Itâ€™s All Positive! The Wet-Plate Collodion Process and delivering a artists’ talk at the Thursday night opening reception entitled Serendipity and Exquisite Manipulation which will discuss the artistic artifacts of the collodion process as well as the factors which influence and guide her work: process, lens, light, exposure and intent.
Workshop information is here
(this is a rare chance as neither she nor Mark teach very many intro collodion workshops!)
