Two articles by Jerry Weiss will appear in the September 2015 issue of The Artist’s Magazine. For his monthly “Master Class” column, Weiss writes about how Paul Gauguin’s “outrageous life found a measure of equanimity in art.” The article, “Extracting Calm from Chaos,” is available to read here as a PDF (page 1 and page 2). Weiss’s second article, “An Insolent Kind of Magnificence,” is a richly illustrated extended review of the Metropolitan Museum’s current exhibition “Sargent: Portraits of Artists and Friends,” which you can read here (page 1, page 2, page 3, page 4, page 5, page 7, page 7, and page 8).
Richard Barnet is one of sixteen artists exhibiting in William Homan Gallery’s Summer Group Show, which opened July 22 and continues through August 26, 2015.
Bill Behken’s Night Passage, Noble & Serene is featured on the front page of the July 2015 issue of the Journal of the Print World. “The highlight of my Staten Island Ferry passage across New York Harbor,” says Behken, “is the thrill of seeing the Statue of Liberty emerge…larger and larger to dominate that expansive space of water. Her stance of endurance and certitude inspires in me the knowledge that we have the freedom to think, speak and pursue our lives as we wish. She represents the nobility of our humanity.”

The exhibition opens July 23, with a reception scheduled that evening from 5 to 8 p.m., and continues through August 15, 2015.
