“Bromoil” does not, in fact, mean discord in the Sigma Chi house. A photographic process popularized during the first half of the 20th century, bromoil processing creates an impressionistic, haunting effect with a vintage feel, and it is a preferred method by photographer Jill Skupin Burkholder, who will be on hand 5-8 p.m. May 5 for an artist’s reception at Sun to Moon Gallery celebrating the opening of her exhibition, Bromoil, Encaustic & Pigmented Ink Prints. She will also discuss her work in a new conservation series, EDGE Animal Fine Prints, with partial proceeds benefiting the Zoological Society of London’s EDGE of Existence Program. Even more exciting, local photographers have two chances to learn from Burkholder during full-day hands-on workshops May 7-9 at 1515 Levee St. Costs range from $265 to $450, and include all materials and lunches.
