Tom Artin: “ICELAND”

About the Exhibit

Closing Reception: March 21, 2021 | More Info

Through March 31, 2021

It’s Valentine’s Day month, and throughout February, Tom Artin and Roost at the Union Arts Center are celebrating by sharing the love with the Arts Council of Rockland, a non-profit organization we admire greatly.

Starting February 1st, Tom’s magnificent images of Iceland embedded into acrylic will be available for HALF PRICE, but that’s just the beginning. 100% of proceeds will go to the Arts Council of Rockland, in support of programs for local artists in Rockland County. Make your reservations throughout the month and treat somebody you love to a memorable meal while taking a virtual trip to Iceland – then acquire your favorite photograph, knowing that you’ll also be supporting the local fine arts scene. 

It’s a match made in heaven!

About the Artist

Born: November 12,1938, Bloomington, Indiana

Education: Princeton University, BA, 1960, Ph. D., 1968

Tom Artin is a photographer living in Rockland County, New York. His subjects range from landscapes, seascapes and cityscapes to portraits, florals and still lifes.  Artin began taking, developing, and printing images in the early 1950s. 

The majority of Artin’s photographs originate as medium format images shot on film with vintage Rolleiflexes and a Hasselblad, though he also works with 4”x5” and 8”x10” view cameras.  In recent years, he has added digital cameras to his toolbox, specifically several Sony cameras outfitted with Carl Zeiss lenses.  In the digital lightroom, he processes images scanned from negatives and transparencies in Photoshop and prints on Hahnemühle water-color type papers via Conetech Piezography, a Quad-tone digital black and white printing process developed for the Epson inkjet printers.

In the 1950’s Artin outfitted his own dedicated darkroom at home and devoted his high school senior chemistry project to the chemistry of photography, which included fabricating and printing on his own photographic paper.  In 1956, he worked as photographic assistant to William Vandivert, staff photographer for Life and Time magazines, and one of the founders of Magnum.  Tom’s photographic career ran in parallel with a career as medieval scholar and college teacher, which he left in 1979 to pursue yet a third a career as a professional jazz musician. 

In recent decades, Artin’s work has been primarily in the fine-art category, though he has done fashion and other commercial photography for both print and the internet.  Artin’s studio, in Sparkill, NY, serves also as his lightroom.  His images and fine art posters are sold world-wide. He is currently represented by Artography Limited: www.artographylimited.com and www.artographylimited.shop
