Fall 2010 Exhibitions and Lectures



Matt Frieburghaus


September 7 – October 16, 2010

Opening Reception: Tuesday, September 14, 2010, 5:30 pm – 7 pm

Artist’s Talk: 6:30 pm

Mr. Frieburghaus’s work is an artifact of his investigative procedure. Sound is the foundation that unites the range within his work and emerges as either a component in the final artistic expression or as inspiration. His interest in sound started as a teenager while playing guitar in a band, only to emerge later in his visual art. His artwork also reveals a life-long passion for maps. He attempts to chart a change of perception by translating sensory experiences from one medium to another.

Matt Frieburghaus is an artist living in the Hudson Valley. He is an Assistant Professor of Digital Media at Marist College in Poughkeepsie, NY. Matt earned an MFA in computer art from Syracuse University and a BFA in animation from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. His work has been exhibited in several American locations and around the globe in such areas as Chile, Switzerland, and Taiwan.

Pepe Coronado


October 26 – November 30, 2010

Opening Reception: Tuesday, October 26, 2010, 5:30 pm – 7 pm

Artist’s Gallery: Talk 6:30 pm

These dramatic black and white photographs document ephemeral installations that emphasize the interactions between a space and a series of elements—walls and lines, light and shadow—that come together to form structures. The minimal and quiet quality of these images belies the energy to build, to create, to divide and interact. The architectural aspects appear solid, permanent, but they are fleeting, constantly being acted upon. These structures are flexible and in a constant state of transition, they divide and unfold in space during their existence and, in the process, create new spaces leaving the image as the only permanent marker of a continuous process.

Mr. Coronado’s structures are digitally photographed and printed with B/W pigment inks on Somerset uncoated printmaking paper and mounted on Masonite boards. Somerset paper is used because of its velvet matte surface, purity of color and archival properties.

Fine Art Photography with an iPhone

Dan Burkholder

Tuesday, October 12, 2010, 7 pm

Lurking under the iPhone’s LCD is one of the most inspiring, capable and fun imaging

systems in all of photography. More than just a snapshot device, the iPhone is an enchanting tool for creating art, right in our palm. We now have camera, darkroom, and—as Jerry Uelsmann would say—Visual Research Laboratory, all in our shirt pocket! Liberated from rushing home to our computers, we can shoot and process our images in the field, learning what works (and doesn’t) to make our captures match our vision. Dan Burkholder has a long history of looking over the photographic horizon to see, explore and teach the next great thing in imaging. This is your opportunity to discover the power, fun and stunning output that’s possible from your iPhone!
