Darkroom Rentals

Harwood Art Center is proud to provide affordable working spaces to artists who live and work in the greater Albuquerque area. Our darkroom offers an autonomous working environment for photographers interested in black and white photo processing. The facility provides four functional enlargers, several safe lights, timers, drying racks, two sinks and temporary locker storage space. Photographers are responsible to bring their own paper and chemistry.

Darkroom users will share a Google calendar to manage use. Usage can be purchased at $45 per 15 hour time blocks. Time blocks can also be divided into shorter sessions within Google calendar.

HARWOOD STORIES

Current Harwood Artist


I have been a Harwood Artist since 2001. Four different spaces, four different lifetimes and across media. Sometimes my studio has been a graphic arts workshop, sometimes a painting studio, sometimes a production pottery shop, but being here is always wonderful. From late nights preparing materials for art students to mornings doing pre-natal yoga while I waited for the older child to be done with his work at Escuela del Sol, it is wonderful to reflect on all the art adventures I’ve had over the years at Harwood. The very first night I lived in Albuquerque was spent at a film program at Harwood and from that moment I knew this was an organization I wanted to be involved with. That was 17 years ago and the dream of that first night has blossomed into a reality and a community of which I am proud to be a part!
