Hampton Photos Arts Hosts ‘The Thank You Art Show’

Hampton Photos Arts Hosts ‘The Thank You Art Show’
By Eileen Casey

Thank You Art Show by Hampton Photo ArtsEast Hampton - The “Thank You Art Show” held this past weekend at Ashawagh Hall in East Hampton was an opportunity for Hampton Photos Arts (located in Bridgehampton) to acknowledge and thank the artists who have used their services throughout the year, and who are loyal customers to the business that can be an artist’s best friend.

Owner of Hampton Photo Arts David McHugh, along with his son Ben McHugh, coordinated the exhibition, which featured one piece each from approximately 100 artists who have not only relied on the myriad of materials an artist may require such as stretchers, film, paintbrushes, portfolios, computer imagery, and frames available at Hampton Photo Arts, but the skills and experience both David and Ben have rendered to artists who work in the photographic/digital medium in particular.

Well known as a printing resource for conventional film and digital prints, Ben handles much of the framing requirements, and has been known to make himself available to assist artists in their sometimes ‘offbeat’ requirements, and certainly when the pressure is on for upcoming shows.

Bruce Milne

Bruce Milne's approach to photography is especially painterly. The light evokes Turner, but the space within the work is surreal in spite of the fact the images are unaltered documents. This exhibition is a guided tour of well kept secrets. There are vast atmospheric spaces, and there are dense, frightening spaces that are at once magical and terrifying. Incorporating a large physical scale and panoramic format, Milne opens the door to other worlds most of us never notice. 
The New Roanoke Gallery is pleased to exhibit the photographs of Bruce Milne through January of 2010. The gallery is open daily 11-6, and until 9PM on Saturdays. 
Society is ready to reveal artists’ secrets once more

Society is ready to reveal artists’ secrets once more
By Pat Rogers

What happens when a secret is too compelling to keep? For the Artist Secret Society, it means a group art show is about to be unveiled.

Breaking the self-imposed silence they resumed after last year’s show, the members of the Secret Society have gathered a group of nearly 25 artists for their second annual Guerilla Exhibition, opening at Christy’s Art Center in Sag Harbor on Wednesday, August 12, and continuing through Tuesday, August 18.

An opening reception featuring a live band and entertainment will be held on Saturday, August 15, from 6 to 9 p.m. Visitors shouldn’t be surprised if they’re greeted by a persuasive “gorilla” roaming in front of the brick building where Main Street meets Madison. Once inside, they just might encounter a belly dancer in the coils of a snake moving to live blues music.

The exhibition, “Between Heaven and Hell,” features artwork that explores the three major metaphysical divisions in the epic poem, “The Divine Comedy” by Dante Alighieri (1265-1321). The show is separated into themes of Heaven, Purgatory and Hell.

The show is curated by Catamount Mayhugh, who was also the curator for last year’s inaugural Guerilla Show held at a vacant photo store in East Hampton. Last year’s show featured pieces by eight artists who presented either figurative or abstract work.

This year’s theme of mysticism is in keeping with Mr. Mayhugh’s charge to create a unique exhibition, and it was also a natural fit for the historic Christy’s Art Center and its three distinct spaces, the curator said. The range of the artists gathered is as sprawling as the display space for this year’s show.

Exhibiting artists include Damien Hirst, Dan Rizzie, Steve Miller, Randy Rosenthal, Bettina Werner (the “Queen of Salt”), David Geiser and Darius Yektai. Also showing are Jameson Ellis, Oliver Peterson, Benjamin McHugh, Melora Griffis, Paul Ickovic, Lola Schnabel, Norman Brosterman, among others. Artist Secret Society founders David Gamble and Eric Ernst will also have work in the show.

Besides selecting pieces that fall outside the norms of what is typically exhibited on the East End, Mr. Mayhugh chose much of the artwork for its commentary on the extremes of good and evil. In some cases, similar works could find their places in both Heaven and Hell, he added.

“Randy Rosenthal has carved sculptures of money,” the curator said. “I’m hoping to get two of them so they can go in Heaven and Hell. The point is that it’s not the object but the intent of the person. The exhibition has a lot of layers to it. How many of those layers people want to see is up to them.”

Long Island Black Artist Association
Long Island Black Artist Association was founded in 1968 by four artists James Counts, Ray Miles, Ernest Snell and Charles Winslow.   The purpose of the association is to help African-American artist find a conduit for the exhibition of their work.   To that end it has continually sought new venues for exhibiting the work of its' members locally, nationally and internationally and has also encouraged the artist's individual efforts to find recognition. 
Guild Hall
Guild Hall opened to the public in the summer of 1931 as a gift of philanthropist Mrs. Lorenzo E. Woodhouse. Designed by architects Aymar Embury II and his wife, landscape architect Ruth Dean, Guild Hall provided East Hampton with an art gallery, a theater and meeting place -- the cultural center in the center of culture. The East End of Long Island is a unique region that has attracted many diversely talented people such as artists, writers, musicians, actors, and directors over the years. They search for and find inspiration in the natural beauty of the landscape, the magnificent light and the endless beaches.

Making Encaustic Medium
I fell in love with encaustic paintings the first time I saw one hanging. There was just something about the work... The luminosity, the transparency, the brilliance. It was unlike anything that I had ever seen before. I knew I had to try it and once I did, I was hooked.
The Paint Color Chart
Experience has taught us that certain combinations of colors, whether in nature or art, affect the eye and mind agreeably, while others give offense. We call the former "harmonies," the latter "discords."
How to make your own oil paints
How to make your own oil paintsOil paints are made basically by mixing cold-pressed Linsed oil with pigment or color until a smooth buttery paint is produced. When the oil paint is used and applied to a surface the oil oxidizes or absorbs air and then forms a solid film that binds the pigment to the surface of the painting.
