Welcome to Tregoning & Company
PANORAMIC PHOTO COLLAGES 1976 - 2006
For two decades, Masumi Hayashi used art to awaken people gently but insistently to societal ills. Her photo collages applied photography's most seductive traits -- believability and formal beauty -- to explore disturbing subjects including deserted Rust Belt landscapes, decaying abandoned prisons, EPA Superfund sites, and desolate ruins of the relocation camps where Japanese Americans were interned during World War II. Hayashi meant these photographs "to be appreciated for their beauty on one level yet, on another, to create irony and tension."

"But when I fell in love with black, it contained all color. It wasn't a negation of color. It was an acceptance. Because black encompasses all colors. ... You can be quiet and it contains the whole thing. There is no color that will give you the feeling of totality. Of peace. Of greatness. Of quietness. Of excitement. I have seen things that were transformed into black, that took on just greatness. I don't know a lesser word." -- Louise Nevelson
Nevelson gained much of her recognition through her numerous exhibitions worldwide. Her rise to fame was driven by Arnie Glimcher's opening of PACE Gallery in Boston and shortly after moving to New York City. Her earlier dealers included Nierendorf Gallery and Martha Jackson Gallery, both hugely influential in establishing Modern Art in America. She embodied and emblazoned the moniker 'tortured artist.' For decades, Nevelson vehemently fought the patriarchy and her male peers not wanting to be known for her gender, but for her pure talent.
Nevelson was influenced heavily by her mother's sense of fashion and beauty. She coined herself "the original recycler" a scavenger and one can draw parallels and inspiration to and from Marcel Duchamp's found object sculptures of her early career.
This exhibition will be open to the public throughout the month of July and will feature numerous Nevelson creations given to her longtime studio assistant, Diana MacKown, and works from the collection of Arthur Brandt. These works run from the 1930's through her death in the late 1980s, showing the entire course of her life's creativity.

CLEVELAND -- The building is a former automotive factory and once was the American Greetings headquarters. Now the 78th Street Studios is the largest fine art complex of it's kind in Northeast Ohio and it's drawing artists and crowds to the Gordon Square art district every month. Although the building takes up the majority of a city block, it still feels like a hidden gem. Inside, 47 creative businesses occupy different creative spaces on three floors.
