Successful Artist Websites: What Every Artist Needs to Know 

Head

Ed Burke, Web Developer at Artist Website Pro

Tuesday, December 10, 7 pm

 As a solo artist, a group collective or a small arts organization it is vital today to connect to your audience via the web. However, you may not have much of a budget to create a site nor manage it. Creating a great visual site with interesting content is important, however equally important is to make sure it has good Search Engine Optimization (SEO). Part of the SEO is the onsite Meta information and content that should be updated and tweaked often. Of course this management of the site is costly, to keep someone on contract or on staff to do the updating. So how do you Build a Website that Works for your needs and has good SEO? Mr. Burke will share his insights into creating appealing sites that are easy to use and update.

Introductory Talk by Festival Curator Liena Vayzman

Join us for a talk by Liena Vayzman and the screening of work from the Crystal Palace Experimental Film and Video Festival. This is a cutting edge film and video art presentation organized on the theme of the crystalline. This program will introduce audiences to up and coming and established avant-garde film and video artists. The crystal-themed, crystallizing, and multi-faceted video art and experimental films in this festival take as points of departure the cultural, scientific, spiritual, and mathematical associations of crystals, gems, and glass. Crystal balls and handmade prisms, shamanic journeys and Indian salt mines, psychedelic Crystal Light drink mix and Victorian animation, mirrors on 16mm and windows on HD — and even crystals grown on a celluloid filmstrip—all glimmer on our magic screen.

The site for the first festival is originated at ArtSpace New Haven.

This event is open to the public and all enrolled students, but registration is required. Please email us at peekskill@sunywcc.edu.

Our LossAyers_rememberingthedeadsm

December 10 – January 11, 2014

Opening Reception:  Tuesday, December 10, 5:30 – 7:30 pm

Artist’s Gallery Talk: 6:30

(Gallery Closed 12/24/2013 – 1/2/2014)

The collection of work in the show is an elegy that mourns loss of perception.  In our hyper evolving world a dichotomy between the material and the virtual is shifting the way we perceive and experience life.  Our Loss reconstitutes fragments of simulated realities into physical remains .  Haunting landscapes and grave figures offer poetic remarks on the loss of self, physical senses, perceptions, and natural resources.

My visual art takes many different forms: from video installation to painting, sculpture to sound, drawing to performance.

Landscape, nature and human cognition are recurring themes in my work.  I explore the ways in which culturally formed expectations affect perceptions. Through various combinations of media, My work questions the disparities and similarities between my subjects.  Juxtaposing natural and fabricated elements causes a shift in perception, subtly unseating the psychological center of the viewer.

Opening Reception: Thursday, September 19, 2013, 5:30 – 7:30 pm

Artist’s Gallery Talk: 6:30

All interaction is a transmission; an exchange of energy, ideas, information, goods, funds, and countless possibilities. At every moment there are millions of transmissions occurring between individuals, between communities, nations, objects, environments and within ourselves. Life is a series of transmissions, giving and taking, sending and receiving, both passively and actively. Some things are lost in the exchange; some things are added, and some things are created.

In a collection of new work produced for this exhibition, New York based artist Chris Kaczmarek explores ideas of passive and active transmission through kinetic, electronic, and sculptural works that exchange ideas and experiences with the au

dience through the physical and the virtual.

Artist’s Gallery Talk: 6:30

Question all that you see, all that you hear, all that you read, and all that you touch. Is there truth? Intellectualize your senses. Question your reality, realize your position in history influenced by the value and currency of speed and technology; both are responsible for the alteration of the content and meaning of what we see, and what we show. Question the truths in what we read and see, if there is “truth” to be had, at all, in the hands of mankind. Who and what do you trust? And, when?

“It is a terrible thing to see and have no vision” Helen Keller
