2023 E-telier (Online Salon) at Art Students League of New York

2023 E-telier (Online Salon) at Art Students League of New York

The Art Students League of New York continues its E-telier series of online salons, featuring work from the students in its online classes.

I am pleased to be participating again as part of the salon for the Advanced Drawing & Painting class with Chris Gallego. The Salon runs through May, 2023. This year my piece “Summer’s End” is featured as part of the League’s May Salon.  This oil painting is an early fall rural landscape finished earlier this year.

During the Pandemic, the League went online with its classes. Although in-person classes have since resumed, the E-telier online classes have continued to thrive, offering a great range of instruction, from Conceptual Art to traditional figure drawing.

Browsing the work in this Spring’s E-telier Salons is a clear demonstration of the instructors’ skills as well as that of the many impressive students. Check them out – you’ll see what I mean.

Joining the Curatorial Committee for The Gallery at Spencertown Academy

Joining the Curatorial Committee for The Gallery at Spencertown Academy

I’m pleased to announce I will be joining the Curatorial Committee for the Gallery at Spencertown Academy Arts Center n Spencertown, New York.

The Gallery hosts several exhibitions annually, from botanical shows (in coordination with their Garden Tours) to Invitational Shows of selected artists, Member Shows, and Juried Fine Art shows.

This year I will be working on the Regional Juried Fine Arts Show, to take place in September-October 2023. We will also begin work shortly on planning for the 2024 Gallery season. The Regional show will be open to artists in and surrounding Columbia County, New York (show theme to be announced).

The committee is chaired by Norma Cohen. Other new committee members this year I am excited to be working with are: Christian Dewailly, painter David Lesako, and designer/metalsmith Munya Avigail Upin

I look forward to forging new paths in the months ahead with the committee and other members of the staff and board at Spencertown Academy.


2022 “eSalon” at Art Students League of New York

2022 “eSalon” at Art Students League of New York

Last month, the Art Students League of New York began presenting an “eSalon” featuring work from the students in its various “e-telier” classes (virtual classes). The show runs through June 2022.

I am pleased to have my painting “Last Light” (2021, oil on paper) be part of the Chris Gallego March eSalon (detail shown here).  The painting is a winter scene of a local farm, seen at end-of-day. I enjoy these evocative moments when the light changes rapidly and the scene is all about mood.

This was a painting done a part of Chris Gallego’s League ongoing monthly class: “Advanced Drawing, Painting & Composition,” which has created a wonderful community of artists. I especially admire Chris Gallego‘s contemporary approach to representational painting and his thoughtful insights on the painting process.

The eSalon is running through May, 2022.

I will be exhibiting my watercolor “Yellow Field” at the Spencertown Academy’s Member Art Show, which has now been postponed to November, 2020 due to the Coronavirus.

So, the Academy decided to launch a Virtual version of the Members’ Show, which can be found here:

Spencertown Academy Virtual Member’s Show.

The Spencertown Academy, located in Spencertown, NY, hosts numerous creative events throughout the year. 2020 will sadly have a very limited schedule, but they are hoping to open at least some of their public events later.
