Lepidoptery, or butterfly-and-moth fancying, has a distinguished pedigree that includes Vladimir Nabokov among its adherents. And butterflies (or moths) are among the subjects of new work by area photographic artist Leah Sobsey, who will unveil it this afternoon at the Horace Williams House. Called Cyanotypes, it arose out of a monthlong residency at the Grand Canyon, where she photographed biological specimens—some dating to the 1920s—from the collection at the local museum. "I created digital negatives then hand-coated watercolor paper with cyanotype emulsion and exposed the images to the sun on my balcony overlooking the canyon," she tells us in an email. (Sobsey has done some freelance photography for the Indy.) The opening runs 2–4 p.m. and the show remains on view through Jan. 29. —David Fellerath
