Fine Artist of the Month: Giving thanks to the unknown Fine Artist

Each month I am adding to an on-going series of writings and works about Fine Artists who work(ed), or are primarily working in the NYC area. This month I did something a bit different. I dedicate the post and give thanks to Fine Artists who work in NYC who I don't know, may never know about, or who are completely unknown.

I encourage people to try to find out about these people. I welcome people to find Fine Artists living in your own community. I believe in trying to view and experience the Fine Art in your local area first, then trying to seek out via the internet.

I am very thankful to be known by you.

Here are some places to start be encouraged enough by the artists' documentation, ideas, etc:

This is my local community of artists:

Flatbush Artists December Salon - First ever showing of digital drawings

I was invited by the Flatbush Artists to participate in a community art show. This will be the first time I will ever be publicly showing and selling digital drawings . I will be showing both small and large drawings on a digital picture frame that were originally created on a digital tablet.

From the show announcement:

Saturday, December 1, 4-8 pm, Opening party 6-8 pm

Sunday, Dec. 2, Saturday, Dec, 15, Sunday, Dec 16, 1-6 pm

502 9th St., Brooklyn

Sixteen local Brooklyn artists will be showing their work. Come and have a look. Someone on your holiday gift list would probably like something we're showing.

How to get there: Take the F train to Seventh Avenue, Brooklyn. Get off at the 8th Ave end of the train and walk a few houses down the hill on the south side of the street.

Unlimited digital drawings extended due to Sandy

Due to power, internet and other outages this week from Hurricane Sandy I am extending the give-a-way. It seems like the proper thing to do, and quite frankly the only thing I could do contextually given the situation. So until Sunday, November 11th  2012 (what would be Roberto Matta's RIP 101st birthday) the give-a-way is on.

Do you have questions about the drawings? Why would I give away a work of Fine Art that I truly believe in? Read here.

For those who already have a small drawing, you are entitled to upgrade your participation in the project: Now you will receive a large digital drawing... and those who already own a large digital drawing, are entitled to a small or large drawing.

I have received many questions about the content (and the scope of context) for these drawings. I have a long held interest in the difference and similarities between maps and landmarks, in both a very abstract sense and a literal sense. I also have an interest in the speed and dynamics of how the drawings are delivered and the speed in which they are delivered through the internet and through the postal mail service. I believe that the above listed interests are reflected in my digital drawings The key to the drawings is is that they are unique, and are expressing multiple aesthetic sensibilities.

How do I get in on the drawing give-a-way? Email me here, and please include your name and postal address (for officiating certificate). As stated in an earlier post: I will NEVER sell, lend, trade, share, give out any information sent to me.
