BACAA Presents Jon deMartin Figure Workshop

Published December 11, 2019

Jon deMartin, Master Artist, will lead students on an artistic journey in the birthplace of the Renaissance.

In the tradition of the Italian Renaissance the workshop emphasize drawing as the root of classical art. Participants will sketch from sculpture and paintings at the great museums and churches of Florence such as the Palazzo Pitti, Palatine Gallery, Gallery of Modern Art (Neoclassicism to the 1930s), Boboli Gardens, and the Chiostro dello Scalzo. Students will have the opportunity to develop a long pose figure painting in the classical tradition from start to finish for ten afternoon sessions (Monday through Friday) and two Wednesday mornings. They will review the color wheel and how it relates to the classical figure palette.

The goal is to draw a well-proportioned and constructed figure that shows a secure understanding of the model’s surface and its relation to light & shade. Lectures and demonstrations will be given to lead the students through each step, with a clear and logical process of drawing and painting.

New book by Alexandra York

Published December 3, 2019

Alexandra York, head of American Renaissance for the Twenty-first Century (ART), an ARC Allied Organization, has a new book, Soul Celebrations and Spiritual Snacks, just released in time for the holidays. ARC’s editor, Sherry Ross, was a Beta reader for her during her creative process. She has this to say about the book: “Ms. York’s book offers joyful and practical methods by which to obtain heightened spiritual experiences. It is meant for everyone. For our art lovers, here at ARC, it will be especially meaningful because the book devotes an entire chapter to the crucial importance of art in one’s life.”

Quote from the author:
“This book, (along with FROM THE FOUNTAINHEAD TO THE FUTURE and Other Essays on Art and Excellence and CROSSPOINTS, A Novel of Choice –which is set in the art world) joins the most important offerings of my career. My thesis is both original and practical in that it will appeal to both religious and nonreligious individuals. No matter what a person’s situational context, everyone can discover new, enlivening, and soul-stirring experiences for personal happiness, inspirational energy, and spiritual fulfillment. Our essential value center—and everyone has values-- defines our distinctive personhood. This interior core can be activated by external stimuli into experiences of sustained secular, spiritual bliss, becoming celebrations of our one-and-only individualized Self. How? By connecting to and uniting –becoming “One” – with three “other” here-on-earth entities that stimulate our value center both emotionally and physically: nature, art, and romantically beloved humans.”

The e-book, paperback, and hardcover are available on all of the usual outlets like Amazon, B & N, etc. and here.

The Red Show

Published December 2, 2019

Eleventh Street Arts presents The Red Show, an exhibition curated by Dale Zinkowski, featuring a selection of still life, figure, and portrait paintings by contemporary realist artists affiliated with Grand Central Atelier. Each painting featured in the exhibition explores the relationship between the psychological associations of the color red and the sublimity of masterful realist painting. 

“Symbolically, red is the color of life. Red attracts us, conveying vitality, warmth, excitement, passion. Its meaning relates, at bottom, to the human experience of blood and fire, the burning energy of human desirousness.” - Benedikt Taschen, Book of Symbols: Reflections on Archetypal Images, 2010.

The exhibition will be on view Saturdays & Sundays 10:00 am – 5:00 pm and by appointment at Eleventh Street Arts, 46-06 11th St (at 46th Ave), Long Island City, NY 11101.  The Grand Opening will take place on Thursday, December 12, 6:00 – 9:00 pm.
