John Greens’ Nature Photography at Arcadia Nature Center

Patience, diligence, and intimate knowledge of my subject matter are the keys to capturing nature on film, which is the only medium I employ. Often I photograph a subject over several years before I am satisfied.

Natural light is my tool—I do not artificially light the subject –and I never add anything to a scene to improve it. As a naturalist, I use photography as an interpretive tool – a means of increasing environmental awareness among our citizenry. I take care to photograph my subjects as I see them, skillfully using light at appropriate times to achieve my goals.

A Good Night’s Sleep: Monthly Experimental Film and Video Series

screen-shot-2017-05-15-at-12-09-20-pm.png


A Good Night’s Sleep: Monthly Experimental Film and Video Series
May 27th, 8pm at Studio 4, 25 main St 4th floor Northampton.

A Good Night’s Sleep is a monthly screening series featuring film and video by artists connected to Western Massachusetts. Our series connects a wide variety of non commercial forms and perspectives through collaboratively and deliberately curated programs. While most works fall into the broad categories of “experimental” and “documentary,” our priority is in building thought provoking and subversive programs regardless of genre.

The reliability of our monthly events has helped establish a community invested in learning through one another’s films and supporting the creation of new work. Frequent communication between makers and curators has brought about natural collaboration and risk taking; artists will finish a film to show at GNS based on ideas we talk about forming in a program, and our curatorial ideas can be influenced by a film that is still in the process of being made. We often screen works in progress, fostering a space for productive viewing. These types of generative practices are central to the mission of our collective; we see our series as a platform for experiments in collaborative film making and curation. You can learn more about our series and it’s programmers on our website: https://goodnightsleepseries.wordpress.com/

Lisa Leizman Dance Company Culminates Unintended Tour with “Almost There”


Lisa Leizman Dance Company Culminates Unintended Tour with “Almost There”

The Center for the Arts presents the Lisa Leizman Dance Company in concert
Saturday, June 10 at Hallie Flanagan Studio Theatre, Smith College.
7:30 pm performance is followed by a festive dinner reception prepared by members of the troupe. Tickets are $15 for adults and $7 for children under 10, available at www.nohoarts.org or at the door.

The program, entitled "Almost There," is the culmination of a completely unintended tour that began in June of 2013 when the lease expired on the 30-year home of the Northampton Center for the Arts. The Lisa Leizman Dance Company embarked on an unplanned but wildly exuberant trek through the greater Pioneer Valley in search of spaces to hold classes, rehearsals and performances. The dance group, a long-time resident company at the Center, discovered a variety of spaces, performing at the Shea Theater in Turners Falls, the VFW in Florence and outdoors in downtown Northampton and at the Black Birch Vineyard in Southampton.

The company also took their popular children's program "What is Dance?" on the road, visiting the Arcadia Wildlife Sanctuary Preschool, the People's Institute, the Hill Institute and the Bridge Street School. And, during a period of time of interim use, they held classes and rehearsals and even gave two concerts in the new Northampton Community Arts Trust Building at 33 Hawley Street.

Mark Guglielmo "Cuba in Transition: Narrative & Perspective"


Mark Guglielmo "Cuba in Transition: Narrative & Perspective"
A.P.E. Gallery 126 Main St, Northampton, MA
Opening reception: Friday, June 9th (Arts Night Out) 5-9PM
On Display: June 1-25th

Narratives & Perspectives from the Cuban Diaspora, A Bilingual Conversation: Sat. June 17th 2pm
Artist & Curator Talk: Thursday June 22nd 6pm

Cuba in Transition: Narrative & Perspective is a new exhibition of large-scale photo-collages and interviews by Northampton-based artist Mark Guglielmo running from June 1—25, 2017 at A.P.E. Gallery, 126 Main St, Northampton, MA with an opening reception on Friday, June 9 from 5-9PM (Arts Night Out). Each collage measures 5 to 15 feet long and is handmade by taping together hundreds, sometimes thousands, of individual 4x6” photographs. Neither a computer nor Photoshop are used. Culled from dozens of audio interviews Guglielmo recorded and conducted in Spanish, diverse Cuban voices and perspectives are presented on portable mp3 players. Curated by Waleska Santiago-Centeno, it is the New York-born artist’s second exhibition with the gallery. It will travel to Cienfuegos and Trinidad, Cuba in January 2018.

Guglielmo visited Santiago de Cuba and Baracoa in July 2015 and Havana and Viñales in February 2016 before President Obama’s landmark trip to Cuba in March 2016, the first by a sitting US President in 88 years. In February 2017, Guglielmo returned to the island, this time to Cienfuegos and Trinidad de Cuba, just two months after the death of Fidel Castro. An homage to Cuba at this historic moment, this project chronicles a most dynamic people and rich culture full of heart and soul, melded in the crucible of isolation: geographically, economically and politically.

CALL TO ARTISTS: Paint This Box!

Paint This Box! is a downtown project aimed at inviting artists to create unique and imaginative paintings on the utility boxes in downtown Northampton to continue the momentum of turning Northampton into a public art community. Paint This Box! is a public art project funded by local businesses, organizations, and residents. The winning artists will be paid a stipend of $350 each.

“Paint This Box! is a great opportunity to bring more public art into downtown Northampton and for artists and the greater Northampton community to connect,” said Northampton Arts Council Director, Brian Foote. “We want Paint This Box! to showcase the many talented artists in our community and celebrate our city.”

Foote along with Jonathan Goldman, the lead on BenchWalk Project,  are organizing Paint This Box!. Paint This Box! was awarded a Local Cultural Council Grant awarded by the Northampton Arts Council as well as donations from other local organizations. 

Artists can submit proposals for Paint This Box! until the May 21 DEADLINE. The final four selected artists will be determined by Director Brian Foote, Northampton Arts Council Board Member Joseph Pesce, and A. P. E. Associate Director Lisa Thompson.

The four utility boxes that will be painted as part of Paint This Box! are located at the intersections of Bridge Street/Hawley Street/Market Street (59x44x27.25 inches), Main Street/Pleasant Street/King Street (55x38x27.25 inches), Main Street/State Street/New South Street (50x30x18.25 inches), and Main Street/Elm Street/West Street (50x30x18.25 inches). Artists will be using an oil-based, weather resistant, outdoor paint for the utility boxes.

Paint This Box! was inspired by local artist Peter Zierlein. In addition, following the success of BenchWalk in 2015 and the recent renovations of Pulaski Park, Goldman and Foote were interested in continuing to grow Northampton as a public art community. “Not only are we thrilled to bring terrific public art to Northampton, but this is also an opportunity to continue building onto the recent initiatives to enhance the downtown experience,” said Goldman. “In addition, this will help move our city towards future art projects, which will continue to beautify our community.”


For artists interested in submitting a proposal and people interested in donating, please visit http://www.entrythingy.com/www.northamptonartscouncil.org or email hamppublicart@gmail.com.



Designed, prepped, and painted by Peter Zierlein

Paint This Box! is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council and City of Northampton.

Curia
Charlotte Kohlmann
35mm film photographs printed on inkjet paper

This past summer, I re-traced my paternal grandmother's diary which chronicles her escape from Europe during World War II. I was able to visit the small town of Curia, Portugal which my grandmother described as a dull place "with nothing to do but take walks". Curia did not seem any different from her very description when I visited over seventy-five years later. I did not see or interact with any passersby; I could only take long, solitary walks. The Grand Hotel, pictured here, is the very hotel the Portuguese government temporarily housed refugees in and is where my grandmother and her family stayed. The hotel is now abandoned, with all of its furniture still intact. The heat from the various airport x-rays partially melted the film's cellulose and affected its development. In a way, the town reflects just how the film captured it.

X (Unknown Quantity) Presents: Clouded Vision: The Films of Yo Ota


X (Unknown Quantity) Presents:
Clouded Vision: The Films of Yo Ota

Saturday, May 6th, 8:00pm
A.P.E. Gallery, 126 Main StreetNorthampton, MA
Free Admission

Clouded Vision is a program of short films by the Japanese filmmaker, Yo Ota. A former student of Peter Kubelka, Ota has been working in experimental film since the late 1970s. His films center on the exploration of time and space, employing diverse technical effects to trouble the moving image’s presumed realism and create alternative spatio-temporal forms. Existing at the intersections of experimental documentary, the landscape film, and structural film, his work combines contemplative depictions of natural and manmade environments with complex—yet playful—examinations of filmic representation. Clouded Vision gathers together films that span four decades of Ota’s artistic career. The program foregrounds works in which Ota utilizes experimental techniques (varying frame rates, matte work, etc.) to reorganize the viewer’s perception of the world. It also features a number of films that respond creatively to the work of contemporary Japanese artists in other disciplines, such as sculpture, painting, and installation. Recurring at intervals throughout the program, Ota’s characteristic time-lapse footage of cloud formations situates his subjects within an expansive durational field uniquely visible to cinema.

2 BEHOLD Paintings by Kate Childs & Laura Radwell at A.P.E


2 BEHOLD
Feeling figured into landscape
Paintings by Kate Childs & Laura Radwell

May 4 - 28
Artist Reception: May 12: 5-8 pm, Arts Night Out
A.P.E Gallery, 126 Main Street Northampton, MA

The exhibition features abstract landscape works by Kate Childs and Laura Radwell, two artists with two different visions, conjured from within in contemplation of the world without. Childs’ work communicates peace and calm, a sense of quietude. Radwell’s work contains movement, hints of changing conditions, and surprising elements. Her surroundings are more ambiguous and weathered than Childs’ more romantic, dreamlike locales. Both paint with oil on canvas.
