    The University of Arizona Museum of Art is exhibiting the work of Richard Slechta starting May 26. Slechta uses filters, flashlights, and other light sources to "paint" directly onto photographic paper. The exhibit runs from May 26 through September 9. Find out more about the special light art exhibit. The artist was also Technical Lighting Director for Harry Potter and other films.

    Richard Slechta’s preoccupation with the phenomenon of light has been a defining influence on every aspect of his work. The photograms he creates bring together the fields of painting and photography. Wielding light and pigment, his luminescent images explore time’s delicate presence. His life-work has developed from softly contoured silhouettes to the tactile presence of painterly geometric abstractions.
