Artist Talk: Kate Breakey

Feb 21, 2018, 6:30pm
Join INFOCUS for an artist talk with Kate Breakey, who is internationally known for her large-scale, richly hand-colored photographs. During the talk, she will discuss examples of her work and the hand-coloring process, which became popular in the 19th century in an attempt to create more realistic images from black-and-white photographs. More recently, a resurgence in the process of hand-coloring has taken place in the work of many artist-photographers. For more information, please contact support-infocus@phxart.org.
