This Friday, June 27th, the Nashville Community Darkroom is having its opening show, The f-Stops Here. This summer themed photography exhibit will feature photographers Laura Carpenter, Angela Disrud, Stacey Irvin, Heather Lose, Amanda McAdams, Emily Naff, Kay Ramming, Andee Rudloff, and Wendy Whittemore. Attendees can expect to see a wide variety of photography, from black & white and color to platinum and Polaroid transfers. Heather Lose, a featured artist, says the exhibit is not what people will expect,

“…they will be surprised by the range of responses and how many different things people think of when they hear the word summer.”

About the Nashville Community Darkroom: Established in 2013, this nonprofit organization works with other nonprofits and local schools to provide education of the arts, such as film photography, portraiture, and traditional processes. In addition, this nonprofit group provides an excellent gallery, workspace, and darkroom to its members for their personal and professional projects. Artists enjoy the darkroom, not only because of the resource, but because they are able to interact with others who speak the language of photography. Founder John Haubenreich is said to be the motivating and inspiring force behind this project; many say that without him, it wouldn’t have been done.


The Nashville Community Darkroom invites the public to join them for the opening of their inaugural show on June 27th with a reception from 6-9 PM. The Community Darkroom is located at 1143 Gallatin Pike in East Nashville and encourages everyone to stop by and take a tour of the darkroom and classroom.
