I’m looking forward to heading up to Phoenix for a few days next week to do a number of things.
I encourage you to attend curator Rebecca Senf’s lecture next Wednesday night at the Phoenix Art Museum:
Cézanne and Modern Photography
August 4, 7pm
“Paul Cézanne’s influence on painting is obvious, but what about his effect on photography? From Edward Steichen’s still lifes of fruit to Alfred Stieglitz’s portraits of bathers, Norton Family Curator of Photography Rebecca Senf, Ph.D., discusses how early American photography reflects Cézanne’s infamous subject matter, composition and style.”
This lecture is being held in conjunction with the exhibition “Cezanne and American Modernism” which continues through September 26th at PAM.
Also on view at PAM: I am looking forward to seeing the new newly installed exhibition “Creative Continuum: The History of the Center for Creative Photography” (through November 28th).
Heading west to Scottsdale I can’t wait to see the new exhibition at Lisa Sette Gallery:
From the Ground Up – a summer group exhibition dealing with themes of the environment and the natural world.
Featuring the work of Kim Cridler, Binh Danh, Lalla Essaydi, Valerie Hammond, Rick Hards, Alan Bur Johnson, Jessica Joslin, Mark Klett, Mayme Kratz, Chema Madoz, Carrie Marill, Matthew Moore, Beverly Penn, Mike & Doug Starn and Jo Whaley.
And last but not least, a second visit to Scottsdale SMoCA to view “Re-imagining the West” which will close August 22nd.
During this trip I will have time to accept a limited number of private consultations; if interested please visit my website to learn more about these offerings.
I applaud all museums that organize special study groups by curatorial department, fostering a broader awareness of connoisseurship in the arts among members of their community. The Milwaukee Art Museum has launched the Photography Council, and it will be hosting a benefit this coming Wednesday, August 4th.

Thursday Night in NYC: Chelsea Art Walk
By Peggy Roalf Wednesday, July 28, 2010
Tomorrow night, 25 Chelsea galleries will celebrate the hottest summer on record with extended hours and special events as they host the first annual Chelsea Art Walk. In addition, local sponsors will offer food and drink specials throughout the evening. Wanting to find out more, I contacted art dealer Brian Clamp, who offered these details by email.
“The event was organized by Alyssa Menegat, who is the Gallery Manager at Jenkins Johnson Gallery, and Catherine Wyatt, who is the Gallery Manager at ClampArt,” he said. “Their idea was to try to draw people to Chelsea during the hot summer days when foot traffic typically slows down. Many galleries have excellent shows on view in July, and it’s a shame that they might be missed by people who assume the art market is in low gear for the summer.”

I asked Brian how the idea of his gallery hosting a crepe-making evening with Les Gamins came about. “The idea,” he replied, “was also Catherine’s. Our current exhibition features photographs of New Orleans by Dave Anderson, so she thought the French tie-in made sense. Also,” he concluded, “the point was to involve other local businesses beyond the art world!”

Here’s the lineup as of today: B.E.S.

Also keep an eye out for Cupcake Stop Truck parked on 27th Street and the Van Leeuwen Ice Cream Truck parked on 24th Street.

The Center for Documentary Studies (CDS) at Duke University and The Honickman Foundation (THF), based in Philadelphia, co-sponsor this prestigious biennial prize for American photographers. The only prize of its kind, the CDS / Honickman First Book Prize competition is open to American photographers of any age who have never published a book-length work and who use their cameras for creative exploration, whether it be of places, people, or communities; of the natural or social world; of beauty at large or the lack of it; of objective or subjective realities. The prize will honor work that is visually compelling, that bears witness, and that has integrity of purpose.
Renowned photographer and writer Robert Adams was the prize’s inaugural judge. Maria Morris Hambourg, Curator in Charge of the Department of Photographs at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, judged the second biennial competition. The judge for the third competition (2006) was Robert Frank, one of America’s most important and influential photographers. Celebrated photographer Mary Ellen Mark was the judge of the fourth prize competition in fall 2008. The fifth prize judge (2010) is William Eggleston. The winning photographer receives a grant of $3,000, publication of a book of photography, and inclusion in a Web site devoted to presenting the work of winners of the prize. The judge also writes the introduction for the book, which will be published by Duke University Press in association with CDS Books of the Center for Documentary Studies.
