Art in Gardens: OMAM Hosts a Cyanotype Workshop

Have you ever seen charts as art?

The Ormond Memorial Art Museum hosted a two-day workshop on Wednesday and Thursday, November 17-18 in the museum’s gardens, where a group of six locals learned the cyanotype process, which according to the museum’s web page is one of the earliest photographic print operations. It can be used to capture sketch-like works of plant specimens or copy drawings, and the process involves exposing treated paper or fabric to ultraviolet light to produce a cyan print.

The workshop was led by Kathryn Cross-Tsentzos, a North Carolina artist who focuses on environmental and social issues, as well as traditional fine art and sustainability.
