Wes Lindberg – 365 | 50mm gallery reception Jan. 23

Digital Media instructor Wes Lindberg will have work from his photo-a-day project on display in the President’s Hall.

Lindberg says of the project, ” The concept of the 365 Project is to make one photograph every day for a year. Last year had an additional requirement: the use of a 50mm lens, a lens which closely mimics the human eye.”

Adding to this unique exhibit is the encaustic wax process used by Lindberg to present this work. Speaking on this ancient process, Lindberg said, ” The encaustic process was used to enhance and preserve the photographs. This is a process by which the permanent pigments are printed on archival watercolor paper and sealed with multiple layers of beeswax and resin medium, creating a unique surface of semi-transparent protection.”

This exciting exhibit will be on display through Friday, Jan. 31, and there will be an reception on Thursday, Jan. 23 from 3 p.m. – 6 p.m. in the exhibit space.

The President’s Hall is located on the second floor of the Robertson Administration Building and is open Monday – Friday, 8 a.m.-4 p.m. Please contact the Art Gallery office at 352-395-5464 with any questions.
