The Light We Can’t See: The Photography of Erv Schleufer

When: Tuesdays-Sundays. Continues through Sept. 4 2016

The first major exhibit to hit the galleries of the Northwest Museum of Arts & Culture this summer offers a unique glimpse at regional powwow culture and tradition through the lens of Spokane photographer Erv Schleufer. The self-taught photographer developed his own infrared photography techniques to capture images at regional powwows without the need for a traditional flash, so as not to distract the dancers. See 45 photos from the Coeur d’Alene Tribe member’s portfolio on display through this summer. Capturing images with infrared light creates soft-edged, shadowy scenes in black and white that are both hauntingly beautiful and mesmerizing.

Through Sept. 4; gallery hours are Tue-Sun, 10 am-5 pm (Wed until 8 pm) • $5-$10 admission • The MAC • 2316 W. First • northwestmuseum.org
