"2014 Whitney Counterweight"

If the Whitney Biennial comes, can the Whitney Counterweight be far behind? Grace Glueck, N.Y.Times, 1981 Bill Rabinovitch is sole curator of the 2014 Whitney Counterweight, selected entirely from work posted by artists to Facebook, which he's been continuously inspired by. He feels this makes the 2014 Counterweight contemporary with our times, and consistent with how artists now present work. The Counterweight began in the 1970's when Clement Greenberg challenged Rabinovitch to come up with a response to the Whitney Biennial, and Rabinovitch, along with Vernita N'Cognita, and Barnaby Ruhe, organized the first Counterweight in the tradition of the Salon des Refuses. Rabinovitch declares, It's time for artists to regain the territory they relinquished to the system -- where they've mostly become mere replaceable cogs producing indifferent art for market. A primary issue will be the issue of quality over quantity & what that means in terms of new thinking, feeling & drive in moving things forward toward a more meaningful art world capable of creating positive change. Work from the Counterweight will be shown, and artists will speak. See www.WhitneyCounterweight.com for a list of artists involved.

Moderator: Bill Rabinovitch, artist, videographer, Counterweight co-founder
Panelist: Vernita N'Cognita, artist, director of Viridian Artists, Counterweight co-founder
Panelist: Barnaby Ruhe, painter, shaman, educator, Counterweight co-founder
Organizer: Bill Rabinovitch, artist

"Foto Frontiers:
HDR & iPhoneography "

Prof. T. Lawrence Wheatman designed and leads photographic artist development courses at NYU-SCPS including one using computer assisted high dynamic range photography (HDR), which he calls "the first real change in the field since the invention of color film in the 1930s." The technique uses multiple exposures of the same scene which are then merged to create an image that more closely matches what the human eye sees while also allowing controls to create dramatic painterly effects. Prof. Wheatman will discuss HDR and iPhoneography (which utilizes a smart phone camera to do serious fine art photography) with photographer/author/educator/artist Dan Burkholder (who is a master in iPhoneography, and who Wheatman calls the teachers teacher).

Moderator: T. Lawrence Wheatman, photographer, educator
Panelist: Dan Burkholder, photographer, author, educator
Organizer: Jacqueline Sferra Rada, artist & ATOA Board Member

"Rhino Horn Revisited"

Both Jay Milder, and Peter Passuntino are painters from the Second Generation of Abstract Expressionism in both Provincetown and New York City. However, unlike their abstract contemporaries they have been using the figure as the harbinger for spiritual and political expressionism. With no mainstream support they started to show their work at their own galleries and formed an artist's collective called 'Rhino Horn,' where they created monumental exhibitions and attracted the attention of their peers and critics. The discussion will emphasize each artist's individual career and present a collective view on Figurative Expressionism as it began and where it is today.

Moderator: Adam Zucker, art historian, curator and author
Panelist: Jay Milder, painter
Panelist: Peter Passuntino, painter
Organizer: Adam Zucker, art historian, curator and author
