Karen Davis will be teaching a 5 week workshop, February 17 to March 17, Tuesday evenings at NYU School of Professional Studies, “Portfolio Development and Marketing for Fine Art Photographers. By the end of the class, photographers will have their bio, artist statement and portfolio in shape and a concrete plan of action for getting their work out. This is a great class for jump starting a current project whether you are an exhibiting artist or just beginning to show your work. Extensive resource lists are provided.
As many of you know, Karen has taught marketing, portfolio development, and word and image classes in the Boston area at the Griffin Museum of Photography, Lesley University, Tufts University, Suffolk University and Radcliffe Seminars. This is her first offering in New York.

It was a great night on Warren Street last night. BeLo3rd galleries including Davis Orton Gallery were hoppin’.

Sunday (weather report excellent) is Mrs. Greenthumbs Day in Hudson. Visit some of the hidden gardens of Hudson and stop by Davis Orton Gallery for Mary Kocol’s “Ice Gardens”, Linda Stillman’s “Floribundi” (flower stain drawings including her Hillsdale Garden diary), Linda Morrow’s “Lumininous Bloom” and Pat Barry Levy’s “Adaptations.”
What a terrific turnout and what an appreciative crowd. Special thanks to Mark Kalan for capturing the group with his ricoh theta 360 camera. Here’s a link to a “moving image” - move the image around (or let it move on its own) and you’ll see other early arrivers at the reception.

Judith Black and eight other women photographers are featured in Time Lightbox’s new series, “Under the Radar.” Here, photographer Mark Steinmetz celebrates this group of women who documented life in the Northeast United States in the 1980’s.
The Davis Orton Gallery exhibited Black’s work in 2010. We are happy to report that four images from this series are now offered as small format prints on Davis Orton Editions.
Walter Crump, whose portfolio of luminous still lifes can be seen at the Davis Orton Gallery through May 11,(left: Nautilus, pigment print – not pinhole) recently returned from the opening of a major new exhibition at the New Mexico History Museum at the Palace of Governors, in Santa Fe, “Poetics of Light.”
The museum, which now houses The Pinhole Resource Archive, the world’s largest collection of pinhole photographs (over 6000 images) books and cameras, is exhibiting 200 prints from the collection – and Crump is represented by five of them. The collection was a donation from Pinhole Resource Inc., which is based in New Mexico and led by Eric Renner and Nancy Spencer.

Congratulations to Andi Schreiber who exhibited work from her portfolio, “WonderLust,” at the Davis Orton Gallery in 2013. She was the feature story, along with 17 of her photographs, in the New York Times Lens Blog, “Married with Camera” by James Estrin (March 21,2014).
Andi is also a featured artist on Davis Orton Editions, a new online shop (launching April 5) for small format, fine art photography by a curated list of artists.
Judith Henry has three large pieces in the show, “Women Choose Women Again” at the Visual Art Center of New Jersey in Summit. The show, spanning three galleries of the Center, runs through April 13, 2014. Opening reception is Sunday, January 26 from1-4pm.
From The New Jersey Gannett Daily Record: [Henry] invents multimedia evocations using repurposed documentary materials that tease the tensions at play between public persona and inner character.”
“In a 2013 piece titled “Fargo High School (1935) Senior Girls,’’ from her “Girls, Girls, Girls’’ series, Henry drew 42 portraits of teenage girls from the titular yearbook and photographed herself wearing each as a mask. The gridded image elicits the quirky blend of pathos and humor so characteristic of her oeuvre.”
Judith exhibited work from her series, “Rebirth” and “Masquerade” at the Davis Orton Gallery in 2012.
Very best wishes for the New Year from Karen and Mark.
Thanks to 2013’s exhibiting artists. Your exhibitions, portfolios and photobooks (mixed media and video, too) helped make it a banner year for art in Hudson NY.
Watch for Davis Orton Editions launching April 5 and the first show of our 2014 season, April 11 to May 11, with Robert Moran and David Welch.
