Curtis Salonick Photos to Be Displayed at College Gallery

An exhibit of works by photographic artist Curtis Salonick of Wilkes-Barre will be displayed from April 8 to May 2 at Pennsylvania College of Technology.

The show, “In the Solitude of Darkness,” can be viewed at The Gallery at Penn College, located in Room 202 of the Bush Campus Center.

The opening for the show will be from 4:30 to 7 p.m. on April 8, with an artist’s talk scheduled for 5:15 p.m. Subsequent viewing hours will be from 2 to 6 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 6 to 9 p.m. on May 2 for Williamsport’s “First Friday” event, or by appointment.

Salonick, a self-taught freelance photographer, started with a 35 mm camera at the age of 16, photographing woods and wildlife. Soon, he moved to medium-format cameras, developing his skills in the darkroom and field as he progressed. Next, he developed a process in which he used litho film to mask areas of Cibachrome prints. In 1989, he began using an empty warehouse and progressed from color film and nature photography to the 4″ x 5″ format and black-and-white film, relying on models and elaborate sets and props. His style has evolved into what Salonick refers to as “Gothic Surrealism.”
