Join us at Wright Locke Farm’s All Season Barn for a conversation with artist and educator, Anne Eder, together with her recent workshop students, as they share art work made from foraging plant materials on and around the farm and then printed using emulsions created from those plants and the sun.
Interdisciplinary artist and educator, Anne Eder, the course instructor, will speak about the role of the natural world in her work and practice. She is known for her research into less toxic alternatives in photographic processes and for embracing ephemerality by allowing work to return to the earth. She has worked with anthotypes for more than a decade and will discuss the nineteenth century process in the historical context and how it is used by contemporary artists today.
Anne Eder is an interdisciplinary artist and educator, working in photography, sculpture, and fiction writing. She has been internationally exhibited, awarded, and published, including multiple Julia Margaret Cameron awards in alternative process photography. She is currently faculty at Harvard University, Penumbra Foundation, and is guest faculty at Princeton University, co-teaching with Guggenheim fellow, Deana Lawson. She holds a master’s degree in Photography and Integrated Media from Lesley University College of Art and Design where she studied with Christopher James. Much of her work is experimental and research based, combining historic processes, science, and contemporary conceptual thinking.
Throughout her career she has been an advocate for increased access to the arts, co-founding and operating artist run galleries and programming in the Philadelphia metro area, and the creation of public art is a dedicated part of her practice. She lives in Boston writing fairy tales and catering to her fabulous chihuahua, The Brain.
Join us at the beautiful All Season’s Barn of Wright Locke Farm at 7 pm to see the results of the workshop and to hear about Anne’s artistic vision.
