Exhibition at Loyola College - Baltimore, Maryland
September 13 - October 6, 2000

On September 13, 2000 an exhibition opened in the Loyola College Art Gallery in Baltimore, Maryland. This exhibition was a history and appreciation of the camera obscura. It included historic prints, books, and objects from our collection as well as enlarged images to show more detail, Photographs and publications from about 14 camera obscuras we have visited in Great Britain and the U.S. were displayed. Photographs and drawings by five contemporary artists who use the camera obscura were included. The exhibition opening had good attendance and the comments were very positive.

During the exhibition we gave several gallery tours for organizations and school groups. As always a project that took a great deal of time to prepare seemed to be over very soon. The exhibition closed on October 6.

Jack designed and built two new box-style camera obscuras and a one-person tent. The portable box camera obscura he built in 1983 (see the page of portable and box camera obscuras) was on display

The end of the gallery, on the left, showed the work of the invited artists. Moving right to left from the corner are Charles Schwartz - New York City; Sara Mussen - Baltimore; Andrzej Maciejewski - Moscow, Ontario, Canada; Chris Peregoy - Baltimore; and the book on the pedestal, Theresia Rosa Kleeman - Lebec, California
