January 19, PETLEY JONES GALLERY presents Ron Smid ~ Chasing the Light

Posted on 15TH JANUARY 2019

A Photographic Purist: Smid captures light using a weathered 1974 Deardorff 8 x 10 wood camera creating spellbinding images of the Canadian Landscape with a spiritual force that pulls the consciousness deep from within to anyone who sets eyes on his work.

The Cibachrome Print: Changed to Canada-The Light on Our Land Series is printed on rare traditional Cibachrome, by a skilled hand of the infamous Michael Wilder- who, also, worked with Ansel Adams. What is a Cibachrome print and why does Ron use the rare process?

Meet Ron Smid-Find Out! Ron will be at the gallery, with his cameras, light and art, to answer all questions and discuss his journey.
