Monalog Collective Show at the Gallery 270, Westwood, NJ, October 1st – Late December

The second stop of the Monalog Collective’s traveling member exhibit is at the Gallery 270 in Westwood, New Jersey. The show is called The 21st Century Handmade Print: The Monalog Collective.  The 270 is a unique gallery, and Director Tom Gramegna has a real passion for photography that’s infectious! Here’s a description of the 270’s mission.

“Gallery 270, founded in 1998 in Westwood, NJ, flourishes just 20 miles from the nexus of the fine art photographic marketplace. While over a hundred galleries actively sell photography in NYC, Gallery 270 succeeds by catering to experienced and novice collectors seeking an increasingly rare quality in the field – value.  The gallery exists to serve its’ varied community while fostering an appreciation for, and the desire to own, the work of the distinguished photographers of the 20th Century and the emergent photographers of the 21st Century from around the world.  We place particular emphasis on modern emerging photographers employing traditional processes such as platinum/palladium, cyanotype and gum bichromate, where the hand of the artist is so much more intimately engaged.

We hope you will join us on October 15th at 7pm for the show’s virtual Opening … more information to follow! There will also be an in person Opening on November 11th and virtual events to be announced … again more information to follow.  The gallery is located within Bergan County Camera on 270 Westwood Avenue, Westwood, NJ and is open Monday through Saturday, 10am – 5pm.  For more immediate information the gallery can be reached at info@gallery270.com or by phone at (201) 358-5076.

EXPRESSION THROUGH TRADITION

An Exhibition of Photographs

THE MONALOG COLLECTIVE

The Monalog Collective is a group of like-minded photographers that formed to promote Black and White photography and the industry that supports it. This exhibition of photographs, made by twelve Monalog Collective Members, includes modern and historic applications of traditional emulsion-based processes. All images are original and hand-made by the artist. Each photographer has selected a specific process that best captures and expresses their vision of and feelings for a desired subject that is then revealed and shared via a tintype, ambrotype or print.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ed Eckstein’s Photo Book “Divided We Stand” Published By Albumen Gallery

From the recent press release, Monalog member “Ed Eckstein’s photo book ‘Divided We Stand’ offers a compelling testament to the hostile environment of the 202 US presidential election. Online PR News – 03-May-2021 – London, UK – Alongside the photography exhibition (https://albumen-gallery.com/exhibitions/ee-divided-we-standexhibition/) ‘Divided We Stand’ at London based Albumen Gallery (https://albumen-gallery.com/) Albumen Publishing has published a hardcopy photobook (https://albumen-gallery.com/books/) of the same title. The book features all photos by Ed Eckstein (https://albumengallery.com/ed-eckstein-2/) shown in the exhibition. The Divided We Stand project compellingly documents campaign rallies at various locations in Pennsylvania during October 2020. Pennsylvania – Ed Eckstein’s home state -was one of the battle states that were pivotal in the fight for the White House.”

“Commenting on the Divided We Stand project Ed Eckstein says: ‘A presidential campaign grounded in the politics of division over a toxic mix of passions and polarization. Hopes for a healing process seems right at this moment very unlikely. Sadly, Americans cannot agree on a shared reality, many are in echo chambers consuming information tailored to existing biases. Partisan warfare impels people to deny the legitimacy, even the humanity of those with different viewpoints.”

Christopher James, an internationally known artist and photographer whose photographs, paintings, prints, and alternative process image-making have been exhibited in museums and galleries in this country and abroad will be the juror for the 2021 Photo Review Photography Competition.

Thus, the accepted photographs will be seen by thousands of people all across the world and entrants will have a tangible benefit from the competition.

Also, the prizewinning photographers will be chosen for an exhibition at Philadelphia’s noted Woodmere Art Museum. Plus numerous Editor’s Selections will be exhibited in several Photo Review web galleries.

Awards include a $500 purchase prize for inclusion in the Haverford College Photography Collection, one of the largest and most comprehensive college photography collections in the United States, selected by William Earle Williams, the Audrey A. and John L.
