April 29 Polaroid Show

The magic of Polaroid may not be entirely dead, but I would see it while you can. Harvard dropout Edwin Land originally developed polarized sunglasses. In 1948 he developed instant chemistry-based film. The film has been a great scientific tool and an artist favorite. Polaroid has ceased manufacturing, but the Impossible Project has purchased a Polaroid factory and vows to restart. Keep hope alive!

Portland artists Alicia Rose, Jeff Selis, Jan Sonnenmair, Barbara Kinney, Jon Jensen and Lincoln Barbour show their Polaroids, each a unique print. See it at OfficePDX 2204 NE Alberta 6PM-8 Free
