SIXTEEN SEASONS A YEAR – Photography by Tapani Talo

Friday, February 2 - February 27

All Day



During Talo’s late wife’s (Judith Feder) battle with cancer from year 2001 onwards to 2010, while taking care of home and children, he started to focus and be aware of each moment in the day which was very differently from the one he had as a busy New York City professional architect.

This daily awareness developed sensitivity to seasonal patterns and colors opened compositions; colors that we normally do not think of. Tapani Talo has continued the seasonal,  daily study since – for 16 years – with different aspects and emphasis of nature and location all within Westchester, NY.

This show marks the 50th anniversary of Talo becoming a semi professional photographer, which started with his role as a Press Photographer in 1967 for newspapers about Rock and Roll in Helsinki, Finland.

The artist will host a reception on Saturday, February 10, from 2:00pm to 4:00pm in the Oresman Gallery. The reception is also free and everyone is welcome.

Through the eyes of chef-heroes like Bourdain, Dan Barber, Mario Batali, Massimo Bottura, and Danny Bowien, WASTED exposes the criminality of food waste and shows us how each of us can make small changes – all of them delicious – to make the most of every kind of food. Following the film, there will be a Q & A session with the film’s directors, Anna Chai and Nari Kye. Tasty treats will be provided. Presented by The Town of Mamaroneck Sustainability Collaborative and the Village of Larchmont Environmental Committee.

The Devil’s Claw combines her love of Guernsey, myths, and folklore with her obsession with crime fiction and serial killers.

This 1957 classic stars Rita Heyworth, Frank Sinatra and Kim Novak, and is directed by George Sidney. In this film version of the John O’Hara/Richard Rodgers/Lorenz Hart Broadway musical, ambitious singer/dancer Joey (Sinatra) is still something of a louse, but a redeemable one. The relationship between Joey and his older benefactress Vera Simpson (Hayworth) is one of implication rather than overt statement. Not rated.
