Bede Gallery Art Gallery

Mount Marty College’s Bede Art Gallery is hosting artists John Banasiak and Students of USD with an exhibit entitled, “An Exploration of the 19th Century Kallitype Process of Sir John Herschel” that will be on display through March 28th. A free reception and gallery talk is scheduled for March 28th from 2:00 to 4:00 PM and open to the public.

John Banasiak, Professor of Art at USD, says of the exhibit, “The work presented in this exhibition by the students and faculty of the University of South Dakota’s College of Fine Art’s Photography Department is a visual exploration of the nineteenth century iron/silver photographic printing technique of Sir John Herschel’s known as the Kallitype, or Van Dyke Brown process. With a USD ‘Inside Track Grant’ from the Office of Research, we reviewed historical context, mixed emulsions from a variety of formulas, applied the emulsions to personally selected appropriate surfaces, made exposures under a variety of light sources, processed the prints and have presented them in this exhibition. The remaining residue of a visual adventure is in a search for our own personally expressive use of the medium of Photography.”

The hours for the Bede Gallery Art Gallery are 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM daily and it is located in the lobby of the Marian Auditorium.
