Mark your calendar! Artist Michael Kolster will be at the Jepson Center this Thursday evening at 6pm to discuss his work in "Michael Kolster: Take Me to the River." After the lecture, Michael Kolster will be signing copies of his book, “Take Me to the River” (George F. Thompson Publishing, 2016)! About the Exhibition:
This exhibition displays a collection of contemporary wet-plate ambrotypes, a historical technique of photography, from his Rivers series (2011–2014) in which he explores four American rivers that flow into the Atlantic Ocean—the Androscoggin, Schuylkill, James, and Savannah—as they emerge from two centuries of industrial use and neglect.
