Drawings by Caroline Harmon
Artist Caroline Harman whose work recently graced our "Field Projects Gallery" walls in our last show, Drawing Conversations: An Exhibition of Drawing by Caroline Harman and Marc Chabot has been selected to show these pieces at "The Painting Center" in NYC.

The reception will be held Thursday June 20, 2013 6-8pm at The Painting Center
547 West 27th Street, Suite 500, New York, NY 10001

The show at The Painting Center, "Working It Out", is focused on illuminating the  practice of drawing in preparation for painting. Caroline  has been gracious enough to continue to  have her work at our space as a benefit to our students and visitors in an effort to reveal the research and working processes of a painter developing a  body of work.This visual insight has been invaluable in in creating educational dialogues with developing artists and the public at large. Thank you Caroline!

The Painting Center History  
 Drawing by Caroline Harman
 Drawing by Caroline Harman
The Painting Center was created in April of 1993 by twelve painters who felt there was an urgent need for a space devoted entirely to the exhibition of paintings. After finding the second floor space on 52 Greene Street in Soho, they worked to prepare it as a gallery space. They erected several new walls and repaired and painted others; refinished the floor and brought in a desk and other necessary items. In September of that year, they launched an inaugural show featuring forty-nine artists including such painters as Jake Berthot, LouiseFishman, Bill Jensen, and Milton Resnick. This exhibition celebrated The Painting Center's first season and drew attention to it as a new exhibition space. Now located at 547 West 27th Street, The Painting Center has a larger Main Gallery space measuring over 1,000 square feet and a second space known as The Project Room, which measures 200 square feet. Now in its 19th year, The Painting Center has shown thousands of artists in a variety of formats: solo and group shows, shows curated both by outside curators and exhibitions organized by members.
Though there have been changes in the original core group of painters, The Painting Center has survived its critical first years and gone on to present a wide range of painters both known and unknown. Reviews of some of the exhibitions have appeared in The New York Times, The New York Observer, The Brooklyn Rail, Art in America, The New Yorker, The New Art Examiner, The Partisan Review, Art News, Art Forum, and Cover Magazine, among others. In 1998, the center was also included in Modern Painters magazine's "100 Gallery Guide 1998", featuring 100 galleries in New York.

Drawing News!

It's Finally Here!
Manifest International Drawing Annual Vol.7

 I am so excited! and honored to be selected for publication in the Manifest International Drawing Annual Volume 7! So pardon the bragging but it is pretty cool to be included in the company of some AMAZING Artists from around the world!!

Many of these artists I have been admiring for years.
The catalog is gorgeous which isn't a surprise because  Jason Franz, founder of Manifest and the other folks who make things happen there, put on a class act.

The following  is from the Manifest Creative Research Center's site:
For the INDA 7 Manifest received 1511 submissions from 572 artists in 47 states and 37 countries. The publication includes 126 works by 81 artists from 28 states and 5 countries including Canada, France, Germany, South Africa, and the United States. Essays by Kim Darling, James DeBoer, and Dawn Sagar are also included.

 Myself and Brad Guarino

Ten professional and academic advisors qualified in the fields of art, design, criticism, and art history juried the 7th International Drawing Annual. The process of selection was by anonymous blind jury, with each jury member assigning a quality rating for artistic merit to each work submitted. The entries receiving the highest average combined score will be included in this publication.
