Works by Laquita Thomson at Dinah Washington Cultural Arts Center
August 5, 2016 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The Arts Council of Tuscaloosa will host an exhibit of works by artist Laquita Thomson at the Dinah Washington Cultural Arts Center. The display of cyanotypes will be open to the public Aug. 5-26, 2016 in The Arts Council Gallery. An opening reception will be held on Aug. 5 from 5-8 p.m. during First Friday. The exhibit will feature cyanotype photograms from Thomson’s “Renovation” series and straight cyanotypes from the “Photographing the South” series. She often explores alternative photographic processes such as cyanotypes, printing outside in the sun. For the two series presented here, Thomson used the sun, as well as a light table for developing the images. Laquita Thomson is an Associate Professor at Freed-Hardeman University in Henderson, Tenn. where she teaches Studio Art and Art History.
