Current Exhibit

Sarah Orne Jewett Front DoorThe Art of the Tintype: Edith Weiler will run September 15 through November 11, 2017 at Emporium Framing & Gallery in South Berwick, Maine. Edith Weiler currently resides in Deerfield, NH.

Edith Weiler states, “I’ve been studying the tintype process since 2010. Tintypes are one-of-kind images created on metal plates with the same chemicals and processing procedures as in the 19th century.  The tintype, one of three wet plate processes in the mid-19th century, was the primary photographic method used until the 1880’s, predating film, in 1885.  The tintype, best known for Civil War images, was also responsible for capturing portraits of President Lincoln; Lincoln was the first president to have a photographic image."  

Edith has graduated from NH Institute of Art with a Certificate in Photography. She has work at Kimball Jenkins School of Art, will be making and demonstrating Tintypes at Sugar Hill and Wild Graces. She will be participating in the Deerfield Art Tour 2017 and also has been very active in the Woman’s Caucus for the Arts NH serving as the exhibition coordinator for a number of years. Edith has been a member of NH Art Association, NH Society Photographic Artists and currently a member of New Hampshire Professional Photographer's Association and received the Judge’s Choice Award in 2002.
