    Happy Birthday John!

    So I got the Friday of the event off work! So I'll leaving around 6am to get across the boarder before rush hour, making a stop in Erie, PA to check out La Presque Isle (site of Perry's Naval base during hte War of 1812), then making my way towards Cleveland on backroads, hitting up the downtown, then Aperture Tremont. Should be at the house late afternoon.

    John is correct about other platforms being supported. From the page he linked to you can find them right by the link to the iOS apps.

    Android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...raffic.android $3.95
    Windows Phone: http://www.windowsphone.com/en-us/st...1-53494c3b0d8a $3.99

    The page John gave the link to also contains the map for use in a browser.

I have wanted to include images of the 600 foot ships and tugboats. Predicting where and when they will be in the area is very easy with software from http://www.marinetraffic.com/ais/. Each ship has a transponder that reports minute by minute. The port code for Cleveland is CLE just as it is for airplanes. The software can tell you what ships are in port, what are expected, and where each vessel is on the river. There are ($4.99) apps for this for both IPhones and IPads. I’m guessing other devices are not left out.

    Wasn't sure of my schedule until now...

    So, responding to John's generous hospitality, it looks like I will be attending the May get-together.

    Look forward to seeing you all.

    For those of us in the area this looks like a very interesting event. Peter has seen the exhibit. I hope to be there with Dolly.

    4/13/13 2-4pm Panel Discussion on Alternative Processes in Contemporary Photography 4/13/13 2-4pm

    THE JANUS EFFECT: New Photographs from Old Techniques

    Tregoning & Company presents a Panel Discussion with 4 Cleveland photographers who discuss the use of Alternative Processes in creating Contemporary Photography.

    On Saturday afternoon April 13th 2013, between 2 and 4p, Akron Art Museum Collections Manager Arnold Tunstall will moderate a panel discussion comprised of Donald Black, Jr., Gabriel Gonzalez, Greg Martin, and Jeannette Palsa. They will speak about their perspectives as artists employing older techniques and equipment to create their art. The exhibition's Curator, Christopher Pekoc, will also join the panel.

    The Discussion will be offered to the general public as a free event. The event will be staged in the North Gallery of Tregoning & Company, 1300 West 78th Street, Cleveland, OH 44102. Wine and refreshments will be served.
    Recently gallerist and art dealer Bill Tregoning examined remarkable contemporary photographs created employing 19th century techniques. Artist-photographer Christopher Pekoc was the conduit; he had been struck with these photographs by the quartet of artists Tregoning & Company has now invited to participate in a group show this Spring, with Chris Pekoc curating this exhibition. The simultaneous notion of looking forward and backward invokes the Roman god of the New Year: Janus -depicted in antiquity in double profile, simultaneously looking left and right.

    Donald Black, Jr. readily admits to Photography being his first love and relishes the sensory rewards of working with his hands as he engages in traditional darkroom practices. He found those rewards missing with digital photography, so in an attempt to regain them Black turned to a method of capturing images as old as the origins of photography itself: photogravure -a process that produces a continuous tone photograph from an etched copper plate. Rather than using the plate as a negative to produce a print, Black has turned away, instead using the plate as the positive print itself. As if to underscore the satisfaction he derives in this new method, Donald chose to produce a unique, life-size image by conjoining copper plates and presenting them as the final work of art.

    Using the more recently abandoned process of developed film, Gabriel Gonzalez noticed intricate abstract patterns appearing on the discarded gelatin silver prints he found in his darkroom waste basket. He knew the patterns were caused by the oxidation of the chemistry as the silver coating on the photo paper reacted to the stainless steel of his developing sink. It occurred to him that he could manipulate the oxidization process to create his own abstract compositions. Then he digitally scanned the compositions, sometimes layering the scans to create more complexity, and printed the final results with an ink jet printer, resulting in dramatic colors and startling imagery.

    Greg Martin is constantly drawn to the forgotten and discarded, the decaying, the overlooked and the ignored, with his goal always to reveal to the viewer something they have not seen. In the archaic and long-ignored process of wet-plate collodion photography Martin found a method of creating and revealing that is continuously challenging, constantly inspiring, and amazingly rewarding at the same time. Using period equipment, chemistry, and methods developed over 150 years ago he creates imagery that is beyond the reach of today's state-of-the-art.

    Jeannette Palsa also creates images with wet plate-collodion, both forms of ambrotype and collodion images on aluminum. Palsa works intuitively, stating that her philosophy is "to look beyond what you think you see, to make the subject that appears before your
    lens more than what it appears." Process and subject combine to create images of haunting ambiguity.
