Fundraising for Blue Mt. Gallery Lecture Series

The Blue Mountain Gallery is seeking funding for the launch of a new speaker series (Deadline for current campaign, March 19)

“New Perspectives: Alternative Histories of the Art of the Last 60 Years”

The first speaker, David Cohen, is  scheduled for April 16th, 7 pm. Additional monies raised will further support the series.

Many artists in NYC and elsewhere have long felt that the art of the last 60 years has been viewed from a limited perspective and that the same art historical analysis is repeated over and over. It is in the interest of broadening viewpoints that we propose this speaker series.

 Your donation of any amount to our series will help to air new viewpoints and make discussion of art more vital and germane.

Our first speaker will be David Cohen, editor and publisher of, the online arts magazine, founder-moderator of The Review Panel, a critics forum hosted by the National Academy Museum and by the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. Formerly Gallery Director at the New York Studio School and art critic at the New York Sun and he currently serves as visiting associate professor at Pratt Institute as well as teaching at other institutions. His talk will be titled “Canons for Contrarians” and will be presented on Tuesday, April 16, 2013, at 7:00, with your support.  With this success, we will then resume our speaker series in the 2013-14 season. Any funds raised and not spent on the launch will be used then. We hope this series goes on for years!  Will you be a founding sponsor?

The funds will go for speaker fees, image projection equipment, publishing the talk on the Internet and/or in print, advertising, technical support and incidentals for the first speaker in April 2013.
