Phil Nesmith Grand Opening

One of DC’s most recent acquisitions, photographer Phil Nesmith blends traditional practices with very topical and personal subject matter in his first solo show at Irvine Contemporary. Nesmith (no relation to the Monkey), uses the ferrotype process to document his experiences as a soldier in Baghdad, among other subject matter. Way to go Phil! I see big things happening for him in 2008. Come To The Opening This Saturday Night, Behold the Photographs, and Meet Phil (a very warm and engaging person); Boundless Sensual Enjoyments undoubtedly await you:


Dates & Times:

My Baghdad
January 12 – February 17, 2008
Opening Reception: Saturday, January 12, 6-8PM

Location/Contact Info:

Irvine Contemporary is located at 1412 14th St., NW, near P St., in the 14th Street Arts Corridor and Logan Circle area of Washington, DC.Phil Nesmith is a photographer who works with an old wet plate process that results in what is called a ferrotype. This process is seldom used by artists today so this is a rare chance to see the work up close and to meet the artist.

  1. Thanks for sharing these great ideas. I’m bookmarking this for future reference. Some of these I already do, so the point resonated most strongly with me. Keep feeding the creativity.
    I am currently on holiday so, for this reason, I’ve nothing better to do than surf the web for art, lie around and update my blog. Well, more or less anyway.
