Guess who’s coming to Artspace?
August 10 – September 30, 2011, Jacksonites will have the pleasure of viewing Andrew Wyeth: A Survey. Co-produced by the Art Association (A.A.) of Jackson Hole and the Gerald Peters Gallery (an ever-growing presence in our town, Gerald Peters builds art profiles for artists and organizations alike) the show is co-curated by Peter Marcelle and Camille Obering. The show, says the A.A.,” will present watercolor and egg tempera paintings by Andrew Wyeth, one of America’s most influential and well-known painters.”

Galleries West Fine Art holds an artists’ reception for the gallery’s new exhibit, Faces of Life, July 1, 5-8:00 pm. Portraits of man and beast make up this show. I noticed painter Dan Schultz’s beguiling works on the gallery’s website. Here’s a little bit about the artist, whose work appears at left:
“Dan Schultz began receiving awards for his artwork in national competitions as early as age 17. He graduated with honors from the commercial art program at Pensacola Christian College in Florida where the main focus of his studies was graphic design and illustration, but he soon realized that his true passion was fine art. Drawing inspiration from master artists such as John Singer Sargent, Joaquin Sorolla, Anders Zorn and others, Schultz continued to sharpen his drawing and painting skills at Cottonwood Artists’ School in Colorado Springs, Colorado. His skill was soon recognized by the school and he was asked to become an instructor at Cottonwood, making him the youngest to join the group of nationally recognized professional artists teaching there.”

Just received this info: Heather James Fine Art presents COLOR SPEAKS, a show of works by five artists from the Art Students League of New York. Show opens Thursday, June 30, with a reception from 6-8:00 pm. Heather James notes that over the years the Art Students League “…has acquired works by faculty and outstanding students for its permanent collection, which now reflects 135 years of American art history. Selected for their use of vibrant color, four collection works have been loaned for this exhibition – all by prominent artists.” http://www.heatherjames.com
