Hi Diana,
I live in The Netherlands (same as Kees Brandenburg, who thought me gum
printing) so I won't be able to visit the exhibition, unfortunately.
But if you like I can repost your mail on the APUG-forum (www.apug.org) and
in Linkedin groups like Traditional Film Photographers Group, and Fin Art
photography groups.
