Reception January 17, 2019 @ 7 PM

John Reuter was born in Chicago, Illinois in 1953. Raised in California until high school, he moved to New York and attended college in upstate New York at SUNY Geneseo. It was there that he began to study photography and art. He studied with photographer Michael Teres and painter and art historian Rosemary Teres. Together they inspired his early work, which took advantage of photographic process to transform the camera's reality into a more "mythic" reality. Reuter continued this work in graduate school at the University of Iowa in the late seventies. It was here that he began his SX-70 collages, which still inform his work today... See more here.

"John Reuter is an artist. He makes photographs and videos, draws and paints, and yet he is perhaps most well-known as the individual behind the hands-on magic of the giant Polaroid 20x24 camera; a person who sets aside his own aesthetic and artistic practice in order to help his fellow artists realize on film what each envisions in his or her imagination. His creativity, technical abilities and generous spirit are gifts that he shares to insure their success." 
- Barbara Hitchcock

At some point before the exhibition closes, we will hold
a conversation between John Reuter and Barbara Hitchcock
and a  gallery walk with John Reuter. We'll let you know the dates we decide on soon.

This course presents participants with an introduction to the technical aspects needed for preparing images/files for use in traditional and new media using Adobe Photoshop, Bridge and Lightroom. This course will cover the technical aspects of digital file archiving, image file preparation using Photoshop; including file manipulation, retouching, color and exposure correction.

This Course will meet six times, for three hours per meeting. January 28 - March 11. Capacity of class 12.

Start the new year with a new vision! Learn the techniques you need to communicate with your camera and how to take strong, effective photographs in this beginner course.  Different cameras (digital and traditional) will be addressed, and several practical demonstrations will be given in the classroom. Technical considerations will share time with explorations of photographic aesthetics. The emphasis of this course is color photography, though black and white concerns will also be discussed. Students will need to have a camera with manual controls.

Testimonial from Gail Garinger, Linda's student: "Linda's class was terrific!  She taught us the basics, responded to any questions we had, and infused us with her passion for photography."

January 20, 2019 from   4 - 6 PM

The afternoon will begin at 4 PM with a n hour-long yoga class with internationally acclaimed yog a instructor  Patricia Walden Yoga Class Sold Out .
At 5 PM following the yoga class, photographer Francesco Mastalia will discuss the making of his book, his creative process and photographic technique used for  YOGA The Secret of Life. He will share his illuminating journey and sign copies of his book. 

YOGA The Secret of Life is a photo-documentary about the spiritual and physical journey of yoga. Through photographs and text this fine art book explores the personal experiences of 108 of today's leading practitioners and how this  ancient practice has transformed their mind, body, and spirit.

The photographs for the project are taken on glass plates using the wet collodion process, a photographic technique dating back to the 1850's. With the use of a large format wooden camera and antique brass lens, glass plates are hand-coated to produce one-of-a-kind "ambrotype" images. The collodion process transports us to another place and time. When the light-sensitive chemicals absorb the sun's ultraviolet rays, we enter a mysterious world where art and alchemy embrace.
Francesco Mastalia has traveled the world photographing tribal, religious, spiritual, and indigenous people. He is the photographer and author of "DREADS", "ORGANIC Farmers & Chefs of the Hudson Valley" and "YOGA The Secret of Life."

...the camera was applied to extend my vision. It recorded 
what was going on when I was in deep sleep and 
visual sensation was closed. The camera lens was set up
 to focus on the surroundings such as ceilings, walls, and 
corners of my room. The shutter of camera would take
 pictures when I was not awake. When my perception 
was limited and cut off from the usual, the camera 
started to see, to reveal the world I never saw. -WHC

"Abstraction allows man to see with his mind what he cannot see physically with his eyes....Abstract art enables the artist to perceive beyond the tangible, to extract the infinite out of the finite. It is the emancipation of the mind. It is an exploration into unknown areas."

The towers were originally built in 1804-1805 to defend 
against a Napoleonic invasion by sea. Napoleon never 
came.... and the towers did in fact deter what seemed to be the inevitable. The Martello Towers were built closely together so as to function as signal towers. When standing at one 
you will surely see at least one other. In Dublin you 
will see one to the left and one to the right. There are more 
in other countries too, but Ireland is the filter through 
which I chose to document the towers. -TO
