WIDE OPEN, Volume Two:
Book Launch & Benefit Show - June 25th, 2022

We're hosting a book launch Saturday, June 25th, 5-9pm in the courtyard outside the darkroom. This will be unveiling of the book to the public as well as the first opportunity to pick up pre-sale orders or purchase a copy in person. We’ll also have food, drinks, prints for sale, a darkroom open house, AND live music by Baby Smooth, Elijah McFarlane, and more!

Sales of “Wide Open” and all proceeds from this event help us spread the love of analog photography by enabling us to purchase supplies for those enrolled in our classes and providing the funding for our scholarship program. We hope you'll join us!

​We're looking for photo based artists to vend at our event! To learn more or submit an application, click the link below.

We're also looking for some extra support to make the event a success. If you're interested in helping out, please click the link below.

PAST EXHIBITIONS

SAME DIFFERENCE, 2022

Same Difference marks the 2022 iteration of Eugene Darkroom Group’s annual member’s show. This year’s exhibition featured new silver gelatin prints from 18 different artists, including Danger Adams, Ben Birkey, Caely Brandon, Miranda Cavagnaro, Jaden Chavez, Austin Dillon, Lisa Ertmer, Paul Halpern, Brenna Hansen, Elora Kelsh, Bridget Mahan, Brian Maneely, Elijah McFarlane, Diana C Patin, Miles Shepard, Carol Sillars, Adrienne Turner, and Seth Warhol-Streeter.

Member artists were encouraged to reflect on the idiomatic concept of “Same Difference” and the many ways that this phrase can be interpreted and expressed. All artists were restricted to the use of the exact same medium and materials, challenging them not only to look for differences in subject matter but to imagine ways these differences could manifest against the sameness of the final forms presented in the show.  In doing so, the individual pieces combine to form a conceptual exploration both on the nature of uniqueness in art and also the idea of persistence of self during times of extreme change.

The show was open for viewing at Dot Dotson’s Gallery February 3rd-28th. A second iteration was exhibited at Emerald Art Center, March 9th-April 1st.
