    It's time for me to see some prints from some great photographers/printers. Anyone know of any current or upcoming showings of silver gelatin prints in the DC, Baltimore, Philadelphia area? Or how I could find more information about shows in these areas?

    The Lewis Baltz show at the NGA has some very nice prints. I could have sworn they were printed from medium (or even large) format negatives, but I was just reading about Baltz's use of 35mm cameras and Tech Pan. If so, the prints are even more impressive for their technical quality. It helps if you like the New Topographics work, but regardless--Baltz's prints work on many different levels.

    The Print Center and Gallery 339 in Philly. I think The Print Center still has William Earle Williams' show "Party Pictures." Great stuff.

    Thanks guys! Believe it or not I've never seen fiber prints in a showing ever. I think it's time.

    Any chance I can get this thread started back up again? I'm dying to see some silver gelatin work!

    Well, there is almost always something photographic on exhibit at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Often, as in this case, they are in a gallery in the Perelman Building, an adjunct facility across the street from the museum. (It's an early 20th C Art Deco former insurance company building, interesting in itself.) The museum website shows:


    Full description.


    There is also photography by Zoe Strauss thorugh April 22, but the phrase "Inkjet print" suggests it may not meet your requirement. :sad:

    The Allentown Art Museum (about an hour or so north of Philly) shows
    Who Shot Rock & Roll: A Photographic History, 1955 to the Present - on display through May 13. (I assume in 1955 it wasn't digital!)
    And Lydia Panas Photos - up through April 22. No comment as to the ultimate medium, although another site suggests she uses large format color.

    The Berman Museum of Art at Ursinus College (NW of Philly) has acquired a small collection of classic works. See "Picture Making" on this page. I have not checked those out and I'm not sure whether they are just walk in or need a pre-arranged contact. (I live near there, I suppose I should find out!)

    There may very well be others. I live far enough outside the city that I don't get down there as often as I should.
