La Galerie Chartier, Where Media is the Medium

additional reporting by Amanda Bloom

 

La Galerie Chartier,  a new and innovative gallery and performing space serving the Greater New Haven area, is focused on an under-represented medium in

Connecticut – video. Located at 35 Elizabeth Street in downtown Derby, Chartier is owned by a triage of artists: Russell Chartier, Paul Botelho, and Jill Treadwell,

who also serves as the gallery’s manager.

 

Marshal McLuhan, a pioneer in communications theory, described video “as a window to the world.” In a time just before technology was used as the primary way

to connect and send messages, visionaries like McLuhan, Nam June Paik – thought to be the world’s first video artist – and Woody and Steina Vasulka – credited

with bringing the first video art exhibits to the Whitney Museum in the 1970s – sought to find the hidden beauty within the shell of the computer and the television.

As a tribute to these video artists and and the 50th anniversary of the birth of the medium, Chartier is organizing the Northeastern United States chapter of the

worldwide video art exhibition, ’100×100=900,’ in August of this year.

 

’100×100=900′ will feature one hundred videos of five minutes or less, each one meditating on one specific year from the 1900s. The goal is to create a global

narration of the past century via the moving image – the very technology that defined those one hundred years.

 

“We are teamed with venues from across the globe for this event,” said Chartier in an interview, explaining that the goal of the exhibition is to create a worldwide

 archive of video art the can be shared, and grown, collectively. Galerie Chartier, however, is too small a space to accommodate the screening of ’100,’ and the

 trio is currently seeking a suitable venue and additional funding via Kickstarter to bring the exhibition to fruition. Those interested in learning more about the

fundraiser can visit Chartier’s campaign here.

 

Video Art from the Permanent Collection of Galerie Chartier

 

 

 

 

Chartier and Botelho combined two individual projects to represent the year 1999 for ’100′; ‘”1999 Deconstructed,” four minutes of Botelho’s moody, delicate
 piano and stirring images of roaming lights, numbers, and protest, is currently in broadcast rotation at the Paris-based television network Art Television,
 viewable online at oart.tv. “1999″, which Chartier designed not to lead or inform an audience but to encourage diverse and individual reactions, will serve as
 the finale in the exhibition.
 
Treadwell’s interest in interactive media began at the College of  Santa Fe in New Mexico, where her studies with the aforementioned Vasulkas involved dubbing
 archival tapes, introducing her to the edginess of  video art and its community.  She now works as a writer, poet, and video artist and is currently in the process
 of publishing a memoir, The Molecules That Surround Us. Treadwell is also working on an interactive media installation with Woody and Steina Vasulka featuring
her and New Mexico-based writer Melody Sumner Carnahan’s collaborations in writing, poetry, and what Carnahan has dubbed “philosophical noetics” – short,
abstract statements connecting philosophy and technology.”  Along with Botelho and Chartier, Treadwell is also collaborator and star of of the internationally
 recognized “Devil on A Dam” short animation film, which explores the final moments of a woman’s life as she writes her death note.
 
Chartier’s focus in video art is in finding the inherent flaws of the medium. His process uses various techniques to create, deconstruct, and reassemble works to
 find their hidden beauty. In collaboration, Chartier and Bothelo create audiovisual works based on the principle of synchronicity – during the creative process, both
 artists are unaware to the other’s ideas, save for the agreement on the duration of the piece.
 
While the three gallery owners have a stout passion for video art, visitors to La Galerie Chartier can take in more than the medium of the moving picture; the gallery
frequently hosts live music, spoken word events, and other facets of performance art.  Painter Kimberly Joy Sessa is the gallery’s featured artist through April 14
and is sharing the space with photographers Carli Freeman and Jack Petritus and sculptors Andre Tourette and John Allen.  ‘PAINTING + DRAWING + LIGHT,’
opening at Chartier on April 20, will feature three-dimensional drawer, painter, and sculptor Alan Neider, along with abstract painting by Ashleigh Kay and radiograph
 photography by Guinevere Freccia.  Chartier is also now offering a 24/7 video streaming channel for the pieces currently on display at the gallery, viewable at
worldtv.com.

 

 

La Galerie Chartier is open Wednesday through Saturday from 5 to 8pm, Sunday from 3 to 6pm and by appointment at 35 Elizabeth Street in Derby, Connecticut.

an experimental multimedia gallery that opened in December at 35 Elizabeth St., Derby.  
It is  next door to the Valley Arts Council's Gallery@37.  
   

 The photos and artwork now on exhibit there evoke a variety of emotions. 
Freeman's series of black and white photos, "Me Without You," shows a young woman seemingly lost after a breakup.

Sessa's graphic paintings spotlight the horror of abuse against women.

ARTUR FIDALGO GALERIA (curator: Fernanda Pequeno)

research, curation, artistic direction, and art management unto the table, Back to Square 1(BS1) is a broad attempt to make

MAGMA

[Romania]



Magma is acting in two directions. On the one hand, it is boiling, forming under the surface, on the other hand, it comes to

the surface from time to time, erupting. Niklas Luhman’s description of autopoetic may be considered as valid as the (self)

-definition of being a collective action. Magma is autopoetic in the sense that it perpetually sustains, resuscitates itself, without

considering any kind of formal or thematic restriction. Paradoxically, however, it cannot be perceived as a circular gesture,

originating from and returning to itself. It is rather a collective manifestation of a self-functioning unit. In the following we

offer a presentation of consecutive eruptions, which trace t (...)

Our first wave of video artists, (those who were part of the opening) have been published in a compilation of

 modern video artists. The goal is to add video artists in subsequent editions and create a collective of modern video artists.

 (the book is currently free so all video artists please download it within the next 5 days if you would like a

 copy, If you miss it andwant a copy I will buy one and send it to you)

A collection of Modern Video Artists from the perm. Collection of Galerie Chartier

Since we've had so many great submissions since our opening I have created a second addition

including some exciting new video artists, musicians, photographers and mixed media artists.

Each artist who has been exhibited at Galerie Chartier is represented in this edition, "Galerie

Chartier Presents a collection of cutting edge artists of all mediums."

Galerie Chartier was designed to show works by artists whose styles seem to be extremely under-

represented in our area. We have compiled this Artist Collection in an attempt to remedy that fact

and attempt to draw attention to some of these new cutting edge artists, performers and musicians.

A compilation of some of our most talented artists follows.

Our intitial video artists from the opening plus many more have been included in this edition. Book

is set to become free shortly. Currently listed an 1.99.

A Media Arts Gallery, experimental music and performance venue serving the Greater New Haven, CT area.

Chartier is a Media Arts Gallery and performance space created by Russell Chartier, Jill Treadwell and Paul

Botelho which supports video art exhibitions and musical performances. The space serves as a traditional

gallery displaying mixed-media modern Art from a wide array of regional and international artists.

The gallery appeals to New Haven's diverse artistic community and draws crowds for the established artists

"A great project Russell.

 I had a peek earlier and have to say it looks impressive. Big congrats on starting it. Best wishes on its success."

"With the rapid movement of new and better technology and the enthusiasm of artists, photographers, and all

creative thinkers, plus throngs of art/design lovers locally and globally, you may be on the verge of throwing the

doors open a must-visit spot in Greater New Haven! I am certain that the community will support this project on

opening and into the future. Bravo to your entrepreneurial skills for sure!"

-Solomon Walker  (Founder/CEO at MUSEUM OF DIGITAL FINE ARTS) Toronto, Canada


" This is an exciting new venture,that is of value to the community,and the "art community"at large."

" I am finding great interest,now that the world seems to be shrinking for "cross cultural" and"cross disciplinarian"work. Of course,

I still believe in the great value of the specialist, and honor their work.Maybe because I have been in the business world, the

non-profit museum world of fundraising,am also a collector and now a historic preservationist, that I tend to look at the "big

picture"but relying heavily on the specialist to help my vocation. Keep up the good work!"

film making and their unique interpretation of the dual identity." - Nottingham Playhouse UK

montage of images.”

“A video arts movement, much like the experimental film work that swept Europe in the 1920s, is happening in Derby.”
Artists such as Salvador Dali, Luis Bunuel and Sergei Eisenstein played a part in that avant-garde film scene, mainly in

France and Germany, DiCarlo said. -Rich Dicarlo (CTValley Arts Council President)

Media arts showcased in Derby

DERBY — Downtown will soon be home to a media arts gallery with the arrival of Gallerie Chartier.

West Haven resident Russell J. Chartier and his wife, Jill Treadwell, have been reviving a vacant storefront next door to the Valley Arts Council’s 

Gallery@37 on Elizabeth Street.

Gallerie Chartier, at 35 Elizabeth St., will display experimental video art created by artists from around the world. It will also provide space for performance art.

“We feel like video is not represented in the New Haven area, so we are (going to be) the ones to bring top, cutting-edge video artists to this area,” Treadwell said.

Chartier said he plans to create “an ongoing loop” of an archived collection of international video artists to display in the window. He has already played a video

 loop in the window, causing comment and sparking the imaginations of passers-by, Treadwell said. She and her husband majored in moving image arts at

 Santa Fe University of Art and Design in New Mexico.Treadwell has worked in marketing and advertising and at several galleries, both in Sante Fe

 and in Connecticut. Chartier studied broadcast engineering in addition to video art, and works as a broadcast operations supervisor.

Chartier experiments with his video art. His biographical information says “many of the images in his works are distorted and manipulated.”

Valley Arts Council President Rich DiCarlo said he’s thrilled the video art gallery has moved into Derby.

“The arts council always welcomes artists and their ideas,” he said. “Russell, Jill, and Paul are taking things to a new level with Gallerie Chartier.

 Artists who work in the digital medium don’t have a place to reach the public unless they do a show,” DeCarlo said.

He suggested those unfamiliar with video art should “visualize an abstract painting that moves. It’s like a moving canvas, a montage of images.”

“A video arts movement, much like the experimental film work that swept Europe in the 1920s, is happening in Derby.”

Artists such as Salvador Dali, Luis Bunuel and Sergei Eisenstein played a part in that avant-garde film scene, mainly in France and Germany, DiCarlo said.

A grand opening celebration for Gallerie Chartier will be held 8-11 p.m. Dec. 15. For information, contact Treadwell at 203-826-6262 or 

jtreadwell@chartiernanartsvenue.org gallery's co-owner is composer and musician Paul Botelho, an assistant professor of  music at Bucknell University

 in Lewisburg, Pa. The two have worked together since 1996.

 

Dedicated to the Valley Arts Council, its members and supporters.
