Paved has a darkroom!  Do you want to know how to use it?  Artist Barbara Reimer will take participants through an introduction the black and white darkroom processes, technique, and equipment for fine art printing and darkroom experiments.

A hand’s on workshop, come prepared to work in the lab with chemistry and light sensitive materials.  (ie:  hide your phone).   

Barb has a long history with both commercial and fine darkroom printing as well as her own professional art practice.  A technician by nature [I apologize right now if I geek out], she will show you the rules you need and then which ones you can break.

MOSO Partnership: “The History of Internet Art”
Saturday June 18th
Time/Venue: TBA
Hosted by Carrie Gates
Internet art is a fascinating movement in both aesthetics and technology, spanning many types of communities online. However, internet art is often seen as a confusing space for the traditional gallery world to navigate, regardless of its relevance in contemporary culture. Carrie Gates will present a brief history of the highlights of historical internet art from the late 90s forward, focusing on technological advances and their relationship to aesthetics, the intersections of identity politics and personal expression on the web, and current trends and challenges with the curation and archiving of internet art within traditional and online gallery spaces.

***we are in the midst of adding additional workshop content towards the end of June, please check our website and social media for updates as those programs get confirmed.  If there is a workshop your’d like to see PAVED host please email your idea to
