Event Image Exhibition | Alexandra Opie: Echo | April 18 - May 17, 2015
1:00 PM - 5:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hallie Ford Museum of Art

Alexandra Opie is an associate professor of art at Willamette University, where she teaches photography and electronic media. An exhibition of her recent work entitled "Alexandra Opie: Echo" opens April 18 and continues through May 17, 2015, in the Atrium Gallery at the Hallie Ford Museum of Art.

In her most recent body of work, Opie explores the tension between the old and the new by combining one of the earliest photographic processes, the tintype, with present-day technology and subjects. Contemporary figures assume the attitudes of those in antique images while drawings of nineteenth-century dress are superimposed over them using in-camera masks.

10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hallie Ford Museum of Art

Alexandra Opie is an associate professor of art at Willamette University, where she teaches photography and electronic media. An exhibition of her recent work entitled "Alexandra Opie: Echo" opens April 18 and continues through May 17, 2015, in the Atrium Gallery at the Hallie Ford Museum of Art.

In her most recent body of work, Opie explores the tension between the old and the new by combining one of the earliest photographic processes, the tintype, with present-day technology and subjects. Contemporary figures assume the attitudes of those in antique images while drawings of nineteenth-century dress are superimposed over them using in-camera masks.
