Question by RedRaiderAshley: How is public art different than gallery art?
Public art functions differently than art that one encounters in a gallery or museum. Why?

This is for an art appreciation essay so any help will be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

I would think that public art exhibits generally feature local work, while galleries feature work from a wide range of places, as well as featuring local artists. Gallery is not necessarily better quality work than public display; the quality of a piece of art is relative to what you personally enjoy viewing.

Facebook Gallery
I know what you are thinking. Facebook is a terrible website when it comes to uploading your pics. It often takes a few minutes to add your photographs, often your connection drops part way through or it just freezes. What if I said it is all your fault but with a tiny bit of knowledge and skills you’ll start to upload pictures to Facebook and also build a Facebook gallery with blazing speed.

What you should understand is that your web service provider doesn’t allow the exact same upload speeds as it does the download speeds. Most frequently your upload speed will only be approximately one tenth the rate of speed of the downloads. I’m guessing after years of using high speed internet you were never informed of this fact. That is simply because most people hardly ever upload files to the internet but often download. Every single website you check out you are required to get the image on your computer.

Well you’re most certainly feeling disappointed when trying to create a Facebook photo gallery and are wondering how it is possible to solve this problem. Yes you can change your internet service provider and get one that will allow faster upload rates of speed but that’s costly because generally only organizations are interested in paying for faster upload rates of speed.

The answer is to change the size of your pics. The cameras of today are fantastic. They simply blow away the quality of cameras only ten years old. Perhaps you have opened the photographs with MS Paint? If you have, you already know that just a small fraction of the photo is shown on screen and the rest you have to scroll over or down to see. Most picture viewing software programs modify the size of the photographs automatically so it actually fits your screen so you never notice it’s too big to fit the screen. So why wouldn’t you decrease the size so it fits your screen without the need for other software to automatically do it to suit your needs?

In case you were to change the size to simply fit the monitor while viewing it with MS Paint you’ll decrease the size to ten percent of the initial size. That means you can upload the photo ten times more quickly. Remember that you lose pretty much no quality simply because it was too large to actually fit the screen anyway. This technique is really useful when you would like to create a Facebook gallery with a lot of photographs.

Tria Gallery presents Ceci n’est pas une personne, a solo show featuring recent works by L.A. photographer Michael Katcher.

With a wink to the viewer and to the “subjects” of his photographs, Katcher undeniably captures very identifiable human traits and characteristics in his work. However his subjects are not actually people; they are mannequins. And despite their inanimate nature, Katcher’s photographs make the viewer feel that he or she might know the person. Or at least the “type”. With an intelligent sense of humor and a beautiful sense of lighting and overall composition, Katcher’s lens draws you into these people you feel you know. Or don’t know. For ceci n’est pas une personne.

When asked about the inspiration behind his photographs and the “painterly” quality of his work in the Ceci n’est pas une personne series, Katcher explained:The subject of my work is not a person – it is a Mannequin. I use the window display as a canvas, shooting soft focus to distort the image’s perspective. I only have a few minutes to set the shot up, using only natural lighting. As the sun starts to set, and the storefront lights start to illuminate, I crop before I take the picture. Usually one shot and I walk away…In processing, there is no manipulation at all. I want the colors to bleed into each other. Whether it’s a burst of yellow or some shade of gray, the color makes the picture. I want the photograph to feel like an abstract painting. As a child, I was always drawn to painting, even though I couldn’t use the brush like my mother or sisters. So I wanted to tell my story through photographs.

Born in Brooklyn, Katcher went to high school in Great Neck, NY. He later went to Emerson College in Boston, where he graduated with a BFA in Theater. It was there that he picked up his first camera.Katcher moved to Los Angeles in 1989 where he first worked as a casting director, casting such television shows as The Wonder Years, The Larry Sanders Show, and 3rd Rock from the Sun. From there, he went on to become VP of Casting at CBS, where he oversaw the casting of comedies like Everybody Loves Raymond and The King of Queens. Still living in Los Angeles, Katcher currently oversees the TV Talent area of Creative Artists Agency.

It is the mission of Tria Gallery to exhibit a balance of established artists with impressive resumes and exciting young talent, showing representational and abstract work, painting, sculpture, mixed media and installations. The common denominator is that the Tria artist has a unique, authentic voice and a compelling body of work which the directors feel should be given an audience.Tria is open to the public Tuesday through Saturday from 11 am to 6 pm, or by appointment. Ceci n’est pas une personne opens June 7 and remains on exhibition through June 25, 2012. For more information, please visit http://www.triagallerynyc.com as well as makatcher.com
