American Artist's 75th Anniversary Exhibition
April 2013 | The Salmagundi Club | New York City
In celebration of American Artist's 75th anniversary, we are excited to announce a commemorative exhibition that will celebrate the magazine's past, present, and future. Editorial director Michael Gormley and senior editor Allison Malafronte are curating this show to focus on the trajectory realism has followed over the last several centuries; the most influential artists and educational leaders of today who have established a lineage of practice; and artists we feel are taking this movement into the future. As the longest-running art magazine that has always focused on excellence in instruction and mentorship, this exhibition will embody the breadth of American Artist's enduring and well-respected brand—while raising the bar to welcome a wider range of expression.
The show will feature historical works; paintings from a core group of artists we have identified as long-time leaders of our movement—including Stephen Assael, Bo Bartlett, Judith Carducci, Jacob Collins, Martha Erlebacher, Daniel Graves, Daniel E. Greene, Quang Ho, Everett Raymond Kinstler, David A. Leffel, Sherrie McGraw, Dan McCaw, Odd Nerdrum, Anne Packard, Philip Pearlstein, John Howard Sanden, Richard Schmid, Nelson Shanks, Burton Silverman, Jamie Wyeth, Mary Whyte, and more—a third group of up-and-coming artists, who will be invited through recommendations from the core artists, curators' choice, and through an open juried contest that that American Artist will open to the public in 2012.
The exhibition will take place in the spring of 2013 at the historic Salmagundi Club, in New York City, one of the oldest art clubs in the country and a longtime partner and friend of American Artist.The 75th Anniversary exhibition will be one of the first shows to open the club's extensive renovation to their galleries, which will include new floors, walls, lighting, and climate controls; a new skylight in the Upper Gallery; and a state-of-the-art hanging system. The renovation is being funded by a $500,000 grant from The Manton Foundation, created by Sir Edwin A.G. Manton and Florence Manton, members and active supporters of the Salmagundi Club for more than 50 years.
The submission process for the juried portion of the exhibition will be announced in the May 2012 issue of American Artist. Save the date, and make sure you take advantage of this opportunity to exhibit alongside some of the greatest artists of our time in New York City.
Allison Malafronte is the senior editor of American Artist.
