As Spring approaches and the longer days give energy to things that grow, the volunteers at the Knoxville Community Darkroom have also been expending lots of energy towards our Grand Opening on March 31st and towards growing the photography community in Knoxville.
As wonderful as our enlargers are, they would not be very useful without something to rest on. Last Saturday, our volunteers were hard at work creating shelving and counter space for the enlargers.
The tables work fantastically and are thankfully very sturdy.
On Sunday afternoon, volunteers worked to paint and preserve the new tables. An 18% grey shade was chosen, naturally.
Seen above is the large sink which will be used in darkroom processes. Its base also got another coat of paint for protection.
We are so excited for the future of the Knoxville Community Darkroom and for the future of the arts more generally in Knoxville. The grand opening on March 31st will feature a tour of facilities, demonstrations, and possibly free give-aways, raffled prizes and food/beverages.
This week and next weekend, the KCD has several classes being offered including a cyanotype workshop. Reserve your space soon before space runs out!
