Another Successful Event

By Staff | Sep 25, 2015

Tillman Crane, who is known as one of the top Platinum/Palladium printers worldwide, recently returned to Rugby to lead the photo workshop “SPIRIT OF STRUCTURE” with the concentration being “Abandoned Farms in North Dakota”. Crane has given similar workshops and seminars across the United States and from Scotland to China. In speaking with Crane he enjoys coming back to Rugby each year because, “Rugby is such a warm and friendly place to come and the structures are wonderful to photograph.” He continued, “We are able to get access to such wonderfully unique structures because of the hard work Dan Smith puts in. This gives the group always something new to see making the workshop such a pleasure with its friendly environment.”

Smith was the second instructor for the workshop.

This is an annual photo workshop usually held in May, but this year they decided to make it an alumni-only workshop and to hold it in September so they could see the area at a different time of year. Next year they plan to again open the workshop to everyone who wants to attend and move it back to May.

Along with Crane and Smith, accomplished photographer Joe Nash from Baltimore, Md., was the second speaker at the closing reception. The well-attended wine and cheese reception was held at the newly renovated gallery, a hidden jewel in the Prairie Village Museum.
