Saturday, Oct. 20, 9:30 – 10:30am

We’re proud to welcome Robert Calafiore as our 2018 Second Sight Award recipient. Nominated from our participating Portfolio Review photographers in 2017, Robert will present a lecture about his recent work using traditional photographic materials to capture family heirlooms of decorative glassware from his Italian immigrant heritage. Captured using large format cameras, the artist creates unique chromogenic prints made in camera, manipulated during exposure using colored gels and studio lights.

Medium offers a unique print from our Second Sight Award recipients for supporters of Group f.16, in addition to dinner with the artist and our Keynote Lecturer in October 2018. Learn more about supporting Medium and expanding your personal collection with an original print by Robert Calafiore.

A resident of Connecticut, Robert Calafiore holds an MFA from State University of New York at Buffalo and has taught for two decades at the University of Hartford. His current exhibition at ClampArt in New York City runs through March 24, 2018. We’re proud to welcome Robert as part of our 2018 Present Tense Lecture Series.

Registration for the 2018 Festival opens in Summer 2018.
