Wish from the series, Snowbound by Lisa M. Robinson currently showing at Art Intersection
I’m sitting in Liberty Market (a great restaurant right across the street from Art Intersection), sipping tea, nibbling on the best bread pudding I’ve ever had and waiting for the doors to officially open tonight.
It’s hard to believe that Alan Fitzgerald’s dream of opening an art space devoted to the preservation of photography and its roots will soon be a reality.
This weekend Art Intersection will begin a journey. Growing, evolving, building and making a home for the arts to thrive. It’s pretty exciting stuff. We’re ready for you! Welcome.
After several months of constructing, visiting, planning, designing and hoping (and praying) the exhibition space at Art Intersection is coming together.
We installed the exhibits yesterday and… well, you’ll just have to see for yourself on Saturday, January 22 (yikes, that’s THIS Saturday) by stopping in to say hello-7-10pm.
Out of the Blue, the title for the inaugural exhibition opening this month is an opportunity to showcase some of the work that is being made as a result of the resurgence of antiquarian processes in the last few decades by contemporary practitioners in the photographic arts.
The question often asked is, why bother with finicky, “old fashioned” techniques in the 21st century? Would the same questions be asked of the musician using a piano or a dancer practicing ballet?

The use of cyanotype as a means of documenting the world around us can be evidenced by a long and rich history of individuals, the most distinguished, Anna Atkins, (1799-1871), a botanist who in 1843 produced an illustrated book “British Algae: Cyanotype Impressions”. http://digitalgallery.nypl.org/nypldigital/explore/dgexplore.cfm?col_id=188
In the Exhibition, Out of the Blue: A Contemporary Cyanotype Invitational, you’ll see how 21st century artists are using the medium replica chanel handbags.
We are very excited to have presenting in the first of our programming at Art Intersection, none other than marketing guru, Mary Virginia Swanson and co-founder of Radius Books, Darius Himes.
We’ll be their first stop in a series of seminars they are presenting around the country that address the timely issue of publishing a book. There will be three opportunities to fit every level of artist.
Friday evening is a 2 1/2 hour presentation that will give you an overview of whether to be published or self publish. Special guests, Mark Klett and Lisa Robinson, both who have had experience bringing their artwork to publication will take part in the conversation.
Saturday, is a day replica Hermes handbags long seminar that will go into detail, giving participants an in depth overview from concept through production and on to marketing the printed title.
Sunday you can meet with both Mary and Darius for one on one consultations.
Construction is well underway and we wanted to show you the space in progress….
