Bridging the Arts! Two Masters of American Photography, Feb. 28;

Education/Lectures

Katharine Hepburn Cultural Arts Center, 300 Main Street, Old Saybrook, CT , 06475

4:30 p.m., Double Feature – Two masters of American photography: Aaron Siskind and Harry Callahan

5:30 p.m., $15 per film.

Harry Callahan: Eleanor and Barbara

The film will be introduced by Joshua Chuang: Miriam & Ira D. Wallach Associate Director for Art, Prints and Photographs, and The Robert B. Menschel Senior Curator of Photography at the New York Public Library.
This film documents Harry Callahan, one of the great masters of twentieth-century photography. Known for his repertoire of subjects - wife Eleanor, nature, the city - he produced a lifetime of work, which continues to influence a generation.
Recognized for the quiet elegance of his pictures, Callahan’s consistent formalism and perceivable love for his subjects has created numerous classic images that stand as hallmarks in the medium.
Highlighted in the film is the extended portrait of Callahan’s family, from the mid-1940s until the 1960s. Recalling their experiences are the photographer, as well as Eleanor, his principal subject, and Barbara, his daughter.

Aaron Siskind
“Both the object and the idea are in varying degrees of harmony and dominance… Almost inevitably there are tensions in the picture, tensions between the outside world and the inside world. For me, a successful picture resolves these tensions without eliminating them.”- Aaron Siskind, 1954
Aaron Siskind is most remembered for his imaginative photography of two-dimensional surfaces.
This film surveys Siskind’s work over half a century, from his social documentaries of the 1930s to the forms and abstract imagery of found objects, stone walls, and graffiti of ensuing decades.
The photographer is filmed on location in Martha’s Vineyard and Lima, Peru.

Bridging the Arts is a curated film series co-sponsored by Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts and the Kate. The series will feature a selection of art films produced by the highly-regarded Checkerboard Film Foundation and include a brief lecture before each film.

From the old-school tools and techniques to the digital technologies in use today, Vanessa presents an in-depth view and behind the scenes look into the world of art making.

Vanessa Hoheb’s career in the arts has spanned over four decades. She began her formal apprenticeship in her father’s New York sculpture studio at the age of 16, where she learned the skills of sculpture enlarging, mold making, casting and restoration. The years at Hoheb Studios were filled with the excitement of collaborating with many artists including Jasper Johns, Isamu Noguchi, Louise Nevelson and Willem DeKooning. Later, Vanessa taught mold making and casting at Pratt Institute and then joined the Metropolitan Museum as the Assistant Director of the Reproduction Studio.

In 1984, Ms. Hoheb headed the five-member team responsible for restoring the outer skin of the Statue of Liberty. She made molds of the surface where corrosion had punctured holes in the copper skin in the nose, eyes and hair.

Ms. Hoheb joined Polich Tallix Fine Art Foundry in 1999 and for seventeen years was the technical liaison for the sculptors who brought their work there for casting and fabrication.

Vanessa Hoheb established The American Artists’ Hand Archive in 2010 to produce bronze life castings of the hands of the most influential visual artists of our time. The Archive’s mission is to create a comprehensive collection of castings of the hands that have made important contributions to American art.
