These are scary times for photography, an era in which a confused 6-year-old looks at the back of a film camera following shutter release and expects to see a digital preview. So its a good bet that these little tykes, and most folks, have never heard of a contact print. A group of 17 artists takes it back to the old school -- pre-enlarger and pre-negative manipulation -- during the The Contact Printers Guild exhibit. The international association specializes in the purest form of photography, in which a negative is placed directly on photographic paper and developed. Viewing hours on Friday, November 16, are noon to 10 p.m., with an artists reception beginning at 5.
