Art and Photography enthusiast gathered for a Art Reception in Patchogue, Long Island to view a collection of special photographs entitled Northwest Meets Southeast.  The collections are photographs by 30 Long Island fine art photographers

A chance meeting of two fine art photographers Aleta Cortes of Patchogue ArtSpace and Holly Gordon of fotofoto gallery in Huntington very much like Alfred Hitchcock’s Strangers on a Train but no murder to be committed…just a killer photography exhibition…led to Aleta suggesting that the two groups of Long Island artists display their work together in the Patchogue ArtSpace Gallery.

Compared to North by Northwest, the coordinates of northwest and southeast draw us into this production with breathless anticipation and suspense. This collaboration of 30 Long Island artists is a visual feast to be followed by a reciprocal exhibit in Huntington later in this year. The show opens March 16, 2014 and runs through March 31, 2014. Public reception is Saturday, March 22, 2014 from 7-9:30pm.

Robert Farber's global recognition has been established through his books, fine art exhibitions, lectures, TV interviews and award winning advertising campaigns. All in the genres of fashion, beauty, and life style.
 
Robert Farber’s style has influenced generations of photographers. His painterly, impressionistic style captures the essence of composition in every genre, including nudes, still life, landscapes and architecture. His ten photo art books have sold over half a million copies.
Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis brought Farber into Doubleday for the publication of his book “By The Sea,” which won the Art Director’s Award for color photography. Aside from numerous creative awards, Robert Farber also received the Photographer of the Year from PMA (Photographic Manufacturers Association), ASP International Award from the PPA (Professional Photographers of America) and The American Society of Photographers. This award was given to those who’ve made a significant contribution to the science and art of photography. Some previous recipients of this award include Dr. Edwin Land (inventor of the Polaroid), George Hurrell, and National Geographic.
 
Farber’s work with nudes in fine art as well as in the commercial realm is known and respected. He has lectured for Ogilvy & Mather on the “Nude in Advertising.” ASMP requested to use Farber’s nudes as an examples of the artistic application in support of the National Endowment of Arts, after its backing of the controversial Mapplethorpe/Serrano exhibit. His book, “Farber Nudes,” was also included the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis estate collection.
Farber’s fine-art photographs have been published in virtually every form. Farber has exhibited in galleries and museums world-wide. He’s lectured at the Smithsonian Institute, The George Eastman House, as well as Universities and professional groups throughout the United States, Japan, Australia and Europe. Aside from his fine art photography, Robert Farber’s work encompasses major campaigns for fashion, beauty and advertising, as well as directing for TV and film. A documentary highlighting Farber’s life and career, is in development for PBS.

Massive downpours and one of the worst East End traffic tie-ups in recent memory proved no match for the most eagerly anticipated event of the season, the second edition of Art Southampton, presented by Art Miami.The invitation-only preview reception of the premier contemporary and modern art fair in the Hamptons, benefitting Southampton Hospital, drew over 4,200 international collectors and art enthusiasts over the course of Thursday evening. Doubling in size this year to more than 90 exhibitors, Art Southampton dramatically increased its First Look audience while continuing to offer the highest quality of 20th- and 21st-century masters, as well as important emerging artists.From the outset, it was abundantly clear to both dealers and attendees that the high level and dramatic range of international contemporary art that Art Southampton offers – and in an extraordinarily elegant setting that allows each gallery’s work its own spotlight – was the major draw as word of mouth spread quickly among the Hamptons cognoscenti.
 
Local media were quick to add their praise for the outstanding works on display.Upon arriving at the massive 100,000-square-foot pavilion, guests passed through the sculpture garden designed by LaGuardia Design with the assistance of Marder's Nursery. Artists featured include Albert Paley presented by Gerald Peters Gallery; Alexandre Arrechea from Magnan Metz Gallery; and Dietrich Klinge of Galerie Terminus.Visitors also glimpsed cutting-edge automotive artistry from Maserati North America, which showcased their latest high-caliber automobiles, the Ghibli sports sedan and the all-new full-sized Quattroporte. Guests enjoyed Perrier-Jouët champagne and hors d’oeuvres from the Southampton Social Club while admiring the stunning display of precious jewels exhibited by sponsor Graff Diamonds.
 
 
Among the many international collectors were Jean Shafiroff; Dr. Bruce Horten; Ron Ristow; Cynthia and Matthew Mark; Sandra and Stanford Warshawsky, Rolf Heitmeyer, former Ambassador Earle I. Mack and wife Carol; Karl Emil Willers, newly appointed head of the Nassau Country Museum of Art; and Theodore and Ruth Baum, who are hosting a group of young collectors and museum patrons at their nearby estate on a day trip from New York City co-organized by Hyperallergic on Saturday, July 27. Nan Swid, a veteran fair-goer with her husband Stephen Swid, remarked that the assemblage of works was "an amazing selection, the highest quality of art at any of the fairs."
 
Also among the glittering crowd were famed model and Richard Avedon muse China Machado, playwright Joe Pintauro, Cole Rumbough, Kate Edmonds, artist Paton Miller, Sara Herbert Galloway and Barry Klarberg, Laura and John Wynne, Gregory D’Elia, Zita Davisson, Alexandra Fairweather, Andrea Gurvitz, Jeanette Hecktoen, Cherie Kaufman and Bill Sclight, Dr. Matt Kaufman, Gary Lawrance, Howard Rosen, Brenda Simmons, Max Teicher, Ann Thomas, Howard Teich, Mayor Mark Epley, Steve Bernstein, President of Southampton Hospital Foundation; Robert Chaloner, President and CEO of Southampton Hospital; and Henri Barguirdjian, President and CEO of Graff Diamonds. Lucky attendees got their first look at – and dibs on – extraordinary artworks from some of the most prestigious galleries in more than a dozen countries from the Americas, Asia and Europe. Early reports indicated that galleries got a jump-start on sales. A Botero sculpture at Consultores de Arte S.A. sold to a loyal attendee of Art Miami’s multiple fairs for around $400,000. Westwood Gallery parted with several sculptures and a collage by Winston Churchill's granddaughter Edwina Sandys. Hollis Taggert sold Theodoros Stamos' Infinity Fixed # 2 oil on canvas for $75,000.
 
Pace Prints found a home for a John Alexander print, and Sundaram Tagore Gallery sold a work by Mya Ando for $14,000. "Opening night proved that a quality fair turns out a quality audience," said Nick Korniloff, director of Art Miami’s expanding roster of fairs. "It is clear that Art Southampton has filled a void for the most sophisticated tastemakers and culturally savvy audience in New York." Also of great interest were a showcase of artwork by students and faculty of The Ross School in the Hamptons, sales of which will benefit the Chamberlain-Fairweather scholarship fund, and a special reception at theWestwood Gallery booth to honor philanthropist and collector Henry Buhl, founder of ACE (Association of Community Employment Programs for the Homeless).Highlights of the evening also included painter and performance artist Kevin Berlin staging an eye-catchingAlien Invasion and JonOne beginning work on an 8-by-12-foot mural presented by Fabien Castanier Gallery. Legendary photographer Jerry Schatzberg revisited his iconic black-and-white photos of The Rolling Stones in drag, Catherine Deneuve and Bob Dylan at the booth of Nikola Rukaj Gallery from Toronto, where he autographed copies of his books Fashion 1950s and Paris 1962.Pop art attracted crowds and collectors to many dealers’ booths.
 
Galerie Terminus reported serious interest in one of the priciest works for sale, Roy Lichtenstein’s $19 million Woman with Peanuts. Taglialatella Galleries sold a bold Keith Haring work for $31,000. Gallery Valentine, Art Southampton’s official host gallery in East Hampton, filled its booth with large portraits by Andy Warhol, including his Mao Series, while EdelmanArts fielded inquiries about a $10 million Warhol flower painting executed in rare fluorescent paint. "There is incredible turnout and very high-quality work by all exhibiting galleries," said Asher Edelman. "We are very pleased to be a part of this exceptional fair."Warhol’s longtime love of the Hamptons was recalled fondly by his friends and business associates at a lunchtime discussion in the VIP lounge Friday, July 26 at the launch party for the new cultural quarterly Fairweather. Former Interview editor Bob Colacello enjoyed reuniting with Lana Jokel and Vincent Fremont, who made films and television shows with and about Warhol. "We all know each other so well, it was like sitting around our own living room," said Colacello, whose book Holy Terror: Andy Warhol Close Up is being reissued next spring by Knopf as a Vintage Paperback and e-book."If you walk around this fair, there’s so much homage to pop artists.
 
 
Their influence is everywhere," said Christina Strassfield, chief curator at Guild Hall in East Hampton, who moderated the panel. "The layout is really beautiful. It’s airy and the openness is really conducive to looking at art." The New York Academy of Art partnered exclusively with Art Southampton on a special exhibition of works to benefit The Academy’s scholarship fund. The selection of works by the school’s illustrious alumni was curated by Academy senior critic and narrative painter, Eric Fischl, whose works in a range of media also filled the neighboring booth of Hoxton Modern & Contemporary. The longtime Hamptons resident will sign copies of his new memoir Bad Boy: My Life On and Off the Canvas, at a cocktail Saturday from 5 to 7 p.m., when Fischl and New York Academy of Art President David Kratz will lead a tour of the group exhibition.The fair continued through July 29, open noon to 7 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, and closing at 5 p.m. on Monday.

Below are some of the interesting Arrists that I interviewed
 
Muriel Hanson Falborn
 
A career of artist and landscape designer, naturally has offered me a chance to see hundreds of gardens, parks and homes.Here are paintings of scenes that inspired me by their vitality and a wish that this vitality be recorded. Maybe that vitality will resonate with viewers; I hope so. 
 
Coco Pekelis
 
Coco’s paintings, which she calls "scribbled auras," combine words and images to create evocative portraits of her subjects, both human and animal—her pig Albert, her donkey Emma, and a neighbor’s cow, Bertha, are among the "people" who have sat for their portraits. In these images, Coco is as interested in the interior life of her subjects as in their physical appearance—hence the use of words, phrases, and stories in her paintings.Joan TrippJoan Tripp’s grandfather Alfred C. Bates showed at the Royal Academy, England. Her father studied at Academie Beaux-Arts in France. Joan studied with Madame Marec from France while in her teens. Later she graduated from Ithaca College with a BS, and received her MA in Special Education from CW Post.

Hamptonites attend a very special Art Show Benefit at Richard J. Demato Fine Arts Gallery in Sag Harbor, New York on May 11, 2013 despite a rainy Saturday night to benefit the Southampton Hampton Animal Shelter Foundation.
 
The show will run through May 30th at the gallery and thirty-five percent of the proceeds will benefit the Southampton Hampton Animal Shelter Foundation.
The Southampton Animal Shelter was operated as a municipal shelter by the Town of Southampton until January, 2010. Due to budget cuts at the time, the Town eliminated the shelter. A concerned group of locals citizens banded together to save the shelter and created the Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation. The mission is to provide for the welfare of the ever growing number of homeless animals, and, in turn, to place them in permanent caring homes.
 
The Shelter is primarily dedicated to caring for the homeless animals in the Hamptons community of twenty-two towns. They also rescue dogs from “kill shelters” from across the country and have partnered with No More Tears Rescue to rehabilitate and find loving homes for adult dogs from puppy mills.
 
Their mission is to provide for the welfare of animals and reduce the number of homeless pets. Their goal is to promote and nurture the bond between people and animals through adoption, education and community outreach.
 
Notable personalities that attended the Art Show Benefit included: B52's Band Member  Fred Schneider, Artist Katherine Liepe-Lerinson, Brett Caldwell from Passport Magazine, Artists Paton Miller and Jeanette Martone, Entrepreneur and Art Enthusiast Owain Morgan, Photographer Shane Gritzinger and President and Founder Jonathan McCann from The Southampton Animal Shelter.

Leonard Tourné Inc. believes that art improves the quality of life. Beyond aesthetics, art serves as a mode of communication and fosters independent thinking.
 
The Gallery also believe that a lot of improvement is needed in our world to achieve sustainable and prosperous lifestyles for future generations and ourselves.
 
As a social enterprise, LTI is committed to using art as a tool for education, awareness raising, and social change. They promote leadership through art and encourage society to think creatively about how to solve global problems like climate change and poverty.
LTI contributes to society in the following ways:
 
Charity – A percentage of each sale made through LTI is donated to a cause we believe in. They also join forces with nonprofit organizations and other socially responsible companies to host fundraisers and awareness-raising events.
 
Education – LTI seeks out partnerships with public school teachers to set up outdoor classrooms, where our artists and staff teach children about both art and environmental protection. They often donate art supplies to inner-city public schools.
 
Leadership – The gallery promotes emerging artists in our galleries in Manhattan’s SoHo and Upper East Side in New York and Georgetown in Washington, D.C.  and provide other opportunities to help establish and develop their careers. They encourage them to think about the social and environmental impact of their work.
 
I had a chance to chat with Javier Tourné and Curator Doug Dechert about Artist Sonja Eisenberg and his fascinating exhibit of 50 million year old fossils.

If you are an artist, nonprofit, teacher, or other individual interested in collaborating with Leonard Tourné Inc. on any of its philanthropic initiatives, please contact us at info@leonard-tourne.com.

'heart beat. “HEAARTBEAT” captures the man that the public has not seen before: Chamberlain as a father, a husband, and a friend. As he battles health issues, Chamberlain races against time to complete sculptures that will leave his mark on the world. In conclusion, the movie asserts that art's true value comes from the presentation of 'unprecedented information' and ' the experience of self-discovery’.
The screening will benefit the Ross School’s Chamberlain–Fairweather Scholarship Fund for the Arts. The Fund was created by John Chamberlain, Prudence Fairweather and Alexandra Fairweather in 2007 to recognize and support students with a passion for the arts who are in need of financial aid to receive the excellent global interdisciplinary education offered by Ross School. Each year this scholarship encourages young artists to realize their dreams and impact the future of fine arts.

ArtHamptons has recently moved to a larger space to accomodate the growing popularity of fine art.  This summer the fair relocated to the Sculpture Fields of Nova’s Ark, just 1,000 yards from the 2011 site. 

Arthanptons was situated on an amazingly bucolic 97 acre nature preserve featuring a dramatic Sculpture Park, serene pastures with grazing horses, sheep and polo fields showcasing several games scheduled during the fair. Their new home at Nova’s Ark Project is located on Millstone Road off Scuttle Hole Road in Bridgehampton, a site well-known for many charity events including the ever popular Super Saturday fundraiser.

Arthampton has flourished in  just three years since its inception.   The Hamptons Expo Group has emerged as one of the fastest growing fine art fair organizers in the United States.

Arthampton “boutique” shows feature prominent galleries exhibiting the finest in post-war and contemporary art. Headquartered in Southampton, New York, the Hamptons Expo Group created and produces ArtAspen, ArtHamptons, the San Francisco Fine Art Fair, the Houston Fine Art Fair and debuting in February 2012, the Palm Springs Art Fair.

Hamptons glamorous art aficionados gathered to enjoy important works of art-presented by 75 prominent galleries from around the world at the opening night party in Bridgehampton.  Guests Enjoyed wine and hor d’oeuvres as they discovered the finest in contemporary art.  Admission donation benefited East Hampton’s  LongHouse Reserve.

The high-end event was  hosted by HC&G Hamptons Cottages & Gardens.
 
On Sunday afternoon Russell Simmons did a meet and greet with art enthusiast and fans to discusses how his Rush Foundation for the Arts provides more than 2,000 underprivileged children each year with access to the arts.  

I was delighted to sit down and chat with Comedian Cheech Marin about Chicano Art.  Primarily known as an actor, director and performer (half of the comedy team Cheech and Chong) Marin has developed the finest private collection of Chicano art in the country. He states, "Chicano art is American art. My goal is to bring Chicano to the forefront of the art world." His traveling exhibition, broke attendance records during its groundbreaking 15 city tour during 2007-2011. He has authored three books on the topic.

Well respected Art Adviser Constance Schwartz, the illustrious past director of the Nassau County Museum of Art, shared her insights on successful art collecting. She explored what you really need to know to build an impressive fine art collection.  The event hosted by Debra Rothberg from BTheBuzz  and 25A Magazine served as a “meet and greet” opportunity for art lovers from the Gold Coast region of Long Island.
