    Jan Pietrzak show in Hollywood

    My friend Jan (who I almost never see) is having a show. It should be stunning.



    Jan Pietrzak: 25 Years Of Platinum
    Jan Pietrzak

    The Gallery at the
    Creative Center for Photography
    Proudly Presents...
    "25 YEARS OF PLATINUM"

    An exhibition of fine-art photography by:
    JAN PIETRZAK
    Platinum / Palladium Printmaker
    June 26 August 14, 2008
    Jan Pietrzak is a master of the platinum /palladium process of photographic printing. A member
    of the Freestyle Advisory Board of Photographic Professionals, Jan has had his work displayed in
    several group and one man shows, including the Bakersfield Museum of Art, the City of Los
    Angeles Cultural Affairs Department, "La Coppa D'oro" in Parma Italy, the Laband Art Gallery at
    Loyola Marymount University, Pasadena City College, and Friends of Photography, Carmel,
    among many others. He currently teaches photography at Glendale College and Santa Monica
    College in Southern California.
    Jan's platinum and palladium work conveys the rich, textured ambiance of the "out of the way"
    locations he chooses to photograph, in a way that traditional silver gelatin printing cannot. The
    fact that the platinum/palladium image physically becomes an integral part of the print itself,
    rather than a mere emulsion residing on the paper's surface, reflects the depth and context of the
    subject within. As Jan himself states, "What I like about the platinum process is that it has a whole
    different feel; it evokes the subtleties of the landscapes I choose to photograph. It combines for
    me the processes of fine art printmaking and photography in a much more intimate way."

    ARTIST RECEPTION:
    Thursday, June 26, 5:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

    Looking forward to it.
    Jan's work is not to be missed.
    I have seen small prints that were truly masterful.
    I can't wait to see a numerically more substantial body of work.

    Cool, I've seen Jan's stuff there before. See prints, buy more paper and film. That's what happens.

    Congrats to Jan! I can't think of a more deserving person than him. He's a terrific artist and teacher of pt/pd and a gentleman to boot. May have to drive up for this one!

    If anyone has Jan's email address could you send it to me PM? I have lost it somehow.
