What is a model ? A Muse ? Mere flesh or a spark of inspiration ? A voyeur's dream ?
What do they truly contribute ?
What was the artistic input ( if any ) from Kiki - Queen of Montparnarsse ?

Does anyone know about the movie MONDO CANE filmed back in 1962?
It was a shock-u-mentary.
Gualtiero Jacopetti & Franco Prosperi collected this variety of film footage on a journey across the globe.
They tried to get the most unusual and taboo (for 1960s')footage possible. MONDO CANE claimed to be a collection of genuinely shocking scenes sandwiched in with "the unusual" (but lame footage) contrasting the "civilized" societies with so-called "primitive" ones.

One scene they made this big deal about live nude female models covered in paint rolling against a large canvas while a guy with a cello played his bow.
Compared to today's lap dancing this was just safe
bush-brush strokes. Or early nipple prints.

It would be interesting to update idea and have nude male models dipping their brushes in the paint and rubbing against the wide open canvas.
Maybe adding a spray fo colour.

RE: Topic: Role of the Artist's Models

To all my young fans of whom I am a true role model.

I would gladly expose my busom again in the name of creativity & fine art !

Maybe I'll rub my painted nippels against selected
CD covers of my newest matertial ( Did I mention my new CD coming out?).
These special nibble prints ( only $75.95 limited edition )can convey my deep, deep, inner love for all mankind !

P.S. Catch my web-cam !

The role of the artist's model is to connect the energy.
The creation from within as a shared bond of energy.
The inner soul sent to canvas.
The interstellar groove.
The cosmic wisdom from our extra-terrestrial selves.

"Peter Wang" ??
Is that your real name or the name you use in Porno ?
"3rd year - NYU film student"
I wouldn't brag about that either.
Hey...weren't you the guy down at "Two Boot's - Sin Cinema"
playing with his Peter Wang-wang while watching Rachel Welch...?
Musta loved the "stop-motion techniques" from 1966 "One Million Years BC".

Role of the Artist's Models

I think our soldiers in Iraqi just got a little
carried away with their homo-err-otica photographs.
boys will be boys... and some of the girl soldiers look like boys anyway...

I know they were inspired by the Norwegian sculptor
Gustav Vigeland.
Vigeland's unrestrained romanticism and emotionalism of his numerous granite and bronze sculptural bodies piled upon and embracing one another... Dang.. You have to visit Frogner Park to see the central statue. Just all piled up with bodies inter-twined...and then you'd understand the what our kids were trying to achieve...

The role of the artist's model is to express the flow of life's energy!

Usually anything skin tight works - on both sexes.

Flesh.. quality, not quantity....the closer, the better.

This posting dedicated to the loss of designer
Geoffrey Beene

- The designer launched his own company on a shoestring budget in 1963 and turned it into a fashion empire. Along with Bill Blass, Beene was regarded as one of the godfathers of American sportswear.
"The more you learn about clothes, the more you realize what has to be left off," he once said. "Simplification becomes a very complicated procedure."

They say death come in three -
- FWD/Fashion Wire Daily October 1, 2004 - NEW YORK:
Richard Avedon, one of the giants of photography and fashion photography in particular, passed away today in San Antonio, Texas. Avedon created lively, fantastic and glamorous images for Harper's Bazaar, where he was the staff photographer from 1945 - 1965. Avedon never stepped far from fashion, however. After leaving Vogue in 1970, his studio earned commissions from advertisers such as Revlon, Christian Dior and Max Mara.
- Reuters-LA: "Richard Avedon, one of the most influential portrait and fashion photographers of the 20th century....From 1945 to 1965, he was staff photographer for Harper's Bazaar under a series of legendary editors, including Carmel Snow and Diana Vreeland, where he helped move fashion photography away from the world of stuffy mannequins into a more playful era.

If you must talk fashion...
be sure to add the Audrey Hepburn style of Holly Golightly at "Breakfast at Tiffany's".
The soft romantic touch that seems to be
wonderfully brought to life by some designer every year.

If you want ot learn REAL STYLE - watch
Brini Maxwell on the Style Newtork 118.
Whether its 1950's, 60' or 70's... Brini is hotter than electric pink boots and more butch than Truman Capote !

JERUSALEM, ISRAEL - The Jerusalem Municipality officials rejected a proposal to bring a replica of Rodin?s The Thinker because of haredi opposition because it is a nude figure, reported The Jerusalem Post.
Deputy Mayor Shlomi Atias (Shas) stated, "We cannot allow the placement of such a sculpture in a city like Jerusalem. If he was wearing a bathing suit, then maybe it would have passed, but he is totally naked."

Hasn't JERUSALEM ever seen a nude before?
We come into this world with nothing and we will take nothing from it when we go.
So Why not honor Rodin?s "The Thinker" for showing the true human. Our legacy of artistic culture and learning from science, math, creative spirit and the wonders of the complex human body.
Celebrate Rodin?s combination of mind & body.

On Feb 18th ATOA will discuss the photographer; Arno Rafael Minkkinen. He has exclusively photographed his own nude body in locations around the world since 1971.

Reminds me of my cousin Glenn.
Glenn used to say he liked going around the world with Buck, his x-roomate from college.

One time Glenn said "The Buck stops here" and then bent over to pick up a dime from the floor.
I never understood why they were friends. Buck was always so so anal about things. Nothing seemed to penetrate his thoughts.

The NY Times (April 26,) article's main focus (hype) was on the Burlesk Queens working as part time ($20 per Hr.) "nude" artist's models and less said on the variety of body types/shapes (including males) sketched by serious artists.

The NY Times is basically pushing/writing their version(s)

article; "The art of excess "
He was a highly respected society painter. He was also the master of X-rated art ? a 17th-century Tarantino. How did Rubens get away with it? Waldemar Januszczak reports

There's a Rubens show on the way. So I know what you're seeing. You're seeing huge mounds of pink cellulite rippling happily across some of the lardiest thighs in art. You're thinking fat women. You're thinking British actress Dawn French.
..........................
But the painting that beats least about the bush on the subject of Rubens's sexual appetites is his extraordinarily sleazy Samson and Delilah. Having been the world's strongest man, Samson has allowed Delilah to tire him out in bed. And as he droops across her in a deep postcoital slump, a gang of servants loom up out of the gloom to cut off his hair and unman him. It's a castration story, disguised so very lightly. Anyone glancing at it would know immediately that a loud masculine alarm is being sounded here about the seductive dangers of Delilahs.

Advice & define : Model (art)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
Model Posing, Poses and Posing Techniques /The Extended Pose

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Model_%28art%29#Poses_and_Posing_Technique

Artist's models and art school models are often entirely nude, apart from inconspicuous personal items such as small jewelry. In a job advertisement seeking nude models, this may sometimes be referred to as being "undraped."

In Western countries, there is generally no prohibition on the sexes posing nude for or drawing members of the opposite sex, although this was not always the case in the past. In Victorian times some art schools allowed female nudes-- but only if their faces were draped.

Up into the present day some rare art classes prefer male models to wear a jockstrap.

Hazards Of Posing As An Artist's Model:
Lice, crabs, scabies, ringworm and a million other bugs have been picked up from model stands throughout history.

Young women who model successfully for any amount of time will be independent, reliable types with confidence and a healthy self-esteem. A chaperon is unwelcome in most situations.

Men and especially older men will find it difficult to find as much work modelling as women and particularly "young" women. A substantial prejudice exists in the iconography and culture of Western art against the exposed human penis and testicles.

Most exhibited work follows the paradigm of male artists, female models.

Modeling for artists is one of the a professions in which females typically have a financial advantage.

Memling’s Portraits
exhibition thru December 31, 2005

The Frick Collection in New York is offering a special treat for art lovers by being the only museum in the US to present the touring exhibition of paintings by the notable Flemish artist Hans Memling.

This international exhibition of Flemish portrait painting in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries brings together some twenty portraits by Hans Memling.

The loans derive from famous museums in Europe and the United States of America and will be shown successively at the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza (Madrid), the Groeninge Museum (Bruges) and the Frick Collection (New York). Each institution will highlight particular aspects of Memling’s portraiture.

Roberta Smith is the current head art critic for the NY Times. Considering she works for such a prime paper in a prime Art city - it's a waste. Smith's predecessor Hilton Kramer was an eletist snob - but at least he knew something.
And before him - John Russell was formerly the Chief Art Critic of The New York Times.
Russell was educated, well rounded and a friend of Lucian Freud. His writings refelected all that.
Roberta Smith has her own limited agenda and an even more limted ability to write about it.

Currently the cities (NY, London, Washington DC, San Fran) are going thru a rebirth of interest in figurative art.

Current NY exhibtions:
The Metropolitan Museum of Art has: Vincent van Gogh: The Drawings Thru Dec 31
and Clouet to Seurat: French Drawings from The British Museum thru Jan 29

The Frick Collection has
Memling's Portraits thru Dec 31

And there are numerous ateliers drawing from a live model..

ATOA will have a panel focused on the limited period of 150 RE: "How drawing from the live model has evolved over the past 150 years."

We can be thankful to the The Dahesh Museum for saving an overlooked period in art history. Dahesh Museum is arcane but still highly academic. Extremely dull and romantisized work compared to the Expressionist that followed. But this allows us to understand the transfer more easily.

Regarding the panel "Drawing from the Live Model"
It is a shame that ATOA is limiting itself to a mere 150 years and ignoring the great masters like the Flemish baroque painter Peter Paul Rubens or Rembrandt van Rijn or Johannes Vermeer.
Most portrait artists worth their salt would be proud to say who they studied under and who their teachers studied under.
A great legacy anyone would be proud to trace back 100 years or more.
But all claim the hours spent at a good museum viewing the work by Rubens, Rembrandt, Van Dyke, or American painter John Singer Sargent van be their greatest teachers.

I was asked by someone why I was so hard on Roberta Smith.

Because she represents a large important paper in a very diverse city but she writes within her tunnel vision.
She never liked drawing or classic figurative work and won't bend toward reveiwing the rebirth of drawing from the human figure. She wishes it would go away or worse just ignore it. Too bad.

Don't forget Titian's work. Very sensitive. Plus I find the fact that many of Ruben's portrait drawings are of his two wives. A lot of well-known artists of the past used their wives and lovers as muse. A person to add something to the creative process rather than just "a live model".

Recalling basic art history - most of the great works were commissioned by aristocrats for private viewing or church patronage.
Once the great museums were open for public viewing - only then could artists learn by copying the old masters.
The proper respect of one artist for another is shown thru hours of dedicated observation. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
Now the museums have been cheapened to a Mall Stroll.
Just meet a friend for lunch and a quick once around the MET
to prove your sophiscated side. No great attention to brush stokes. God forbid your cell phone does off and 500 feet is spent on inane dribble as you pass a lifetime of Flemish history.

January 2006 DRAW-A-THON!! -- 8 hrs, 12 models and 3 djs

Michael Alan and Artistic Revolution Gallery invite you to our third energetic, alternative eight-hour figure drawing marathon session.

This one-of-a-kind art event will feature 12 models wearing costumes, taking theatrical, improvisational and dynamic poses and DJs sets featuring alternative, dramatic, classical and punk music to spark a creative vibe and set the stage for a truly unique and dynamic drawing experience.

Over 100 artists attended our last event and everyone had a blast!

Nude, partially nude and costumed models will take short, long, interactive and moving poses through out the evening in a variety of alternative drawing scenarios including: break-beat ballet, cardboard chaos, surreal landscape, re-interpretation of Caravaggio and opera death scenes. This month we will have one model holding a long pose during each session so that there is always something to draw!

The Draw-a-thon will take place January 12th 2006
at Fix in Williamsburg at Bedford & N.11th, Bbrooklyn NY. Doors will open at 7pm. http://www.michaelalanart.com/

Back to some serious discussion on "Life Drawing"
aka role of the artist's model.

RE: "If you know anatomy as thoroughly as a doctor, but don't know structure, you will not be able to draw the body correctly.

If you don't know any anatomy, but thoroughly understand structure, you will be able to learn to draw like an old master." - Ted Seth Jacobs

RE : Dictionary of Human Form, by Ted Seth Jacobs

RE: 2 of Jacobs's books: " The first, Drawing with an Open Mind, presented my ideas about the processes of human visual perception, and a great deal of information on the theory of drawing. That book was essentially designed to point out the difference between what the eyes transmit, and what the mind registers.

Light of the Artist explained how the phenomenon of vision requires the interactions of light and forms. As far as possible, I will not repeat material already presented in those books, unless it is pertinent. Anyone unfamiliar with these books should not find any difficulty in following the ideas found in the present work."

The Art Renewal Center is devoted to the following principles and beliefs.

Below are 6 of the 12 principles :

1 - To create the largest on-line Museum on the internet, with hundreds of thousands of oversized high quality images of all the known works of the greatest painters and sculptors in human history, cross referenced to the largest encyclopedic online art reference library of historical texts, essays, biographies and articles.

2 - To promote a return of training, standards and excellence in the visual arts.

3 - To provide responsible views opposing those of the current art establishment when warranted, especially as expressed in critiques of current art exhibitions, and in aesthetic philosophy.

4 - To disseminate the rich artistic heritage of 2500 years of accumulated knowledge in creating traditional, realistic images touching upon universal and timeless themes.

5 - To advance the understanding that Great Art begins with great themes and expresses them poetically through mastery of all aspects of technique.

6 - To repudiate the idea that development in art requires destruction of boundaries and standards, pointless emphasis on 'newness,' or pursuit of the bizarre and ugly as ends in themselves, and to expose as artistic fraud those works conceived only to elicit outrage.

Incase you missed it the first time

# 6 - To repudiate
the idea
that development in art requires destruction of boundaries and standards,
pointless emphasis on 'newness,' or pursuit of the bizarre and ugly
as ends in themselves,
and to expose as artistic fraud those works conceived only to elicit outrage
aka cheap thrill of self-imposed celebrty exabitionist.

=======================================================

Transcript: June 7, 2001 -- Fred Ross, Chairman of the Art Renewal Center, addressed a crowd of over 700 portrait artists.

ARC Chairman speaks at the Met:

Ladies and Gentlemen ... Artists,

The art of painting, one of the greatest traditions in all of human history has been under a merciless and relentless assault for the last one hundred years. I'm referring to the accumulated knowledge of over 2500 hundred years, spanning from Ancient Greece to the early Renaissance and through to the extraordinary pinnacles of artistic achievement seen in the High Renaissance, 17th century Dutch, and the great 19th century Academies of Europe and America. These traditions, just when they were at their absolute zenith, at a peak of achievement, seemingly unbeatable and unstoppable, hit the twentieth century at full stride, and then ... fell off a cliff, and smashed to pieces on the rocks below. Since World War I the contemporary visual arts as represented in Museum exhibitions, University Art Departments, and journalistic art criticism became little more than juvenile, repetitive exercises at proving to the former adult world that they could do whatever they damn well wanted ... sadly devolving ever downwards into a distorted, contrived and contorted notion of freedom of expression. Freedom of expression?

ATOA should do a follow-up drawing/sketch panel in 2007

"Drawing from the Dead Model"

panelists:

German anatomist Professor Gunther von Hagens
British Human Anatomy Experts: Burke and Hare
Saatchi Sensation artist Marc (blood head) Quinn
Artist, Damien Hirst (Sensation formaldehyde shark
and sciencephotorealism Autopsy room fr SPL medical stock photos)
Mexican "D?a de los Muertos" artists: Dem Bones, Dey Rattle, and Dey Bleach.

Benifits of using "Dead Models"
Rigamortous will help the model keep their pose, shorten breaks (except for their rigid arms), add a new cheap sensation interest to the whole traditional dry subject of "sketching & drawing", and add new creative pigment hues of green and blue to the "flesh" category.

Bohemian,

You wrote, "To repudiate the idea that development in art requires destruction of boundaries and standards."

Would you therefore repudiate the work of Claude Monet, Pablo Picasso, Jackson Pollock, Robert Smithson, Donald Judd, Sol LeWitt, Nam June Paik, Bill Viola and all the other innovative artists whose work destroyed the boundaries that existed before them?

If so, maybe you should daub these principles on a cave wall instead of posting them on the internet.

After all, I'm sure The Art Renewal Center which is devoted to those 12 principles (including # 6) would only choose a jury member (2nd Intl. ARC Salon?) intellectually worthy of upholding their high standards and beliefs.

I am sure Mr. Trippi is well versed and up to the task of such a high caliber of critical discussions in the visual arts.

Ahh come on. We all know everything run in cycles.
I'm even sure Og the Bison painter got static from his tribe
when the herds thinned. That's when he invented a diffrent shade of burnt umber.

Right now we're back to the re-development of the classic realist figure. The heavy duty challenge of painting in 2-D from a 3-D subject and breathe some life into the results.

Nam June Paik's use of electronic TV's was cutting edge but now it gimicky next to a prime LCD monitor and some decent standard software.

And remeber kiddies.. as with most things in life....
Those that can paint... those that can't preach and teach and bet the subject into boring submission until the next generation rise in protest.

"need for creativity"
Yes there is a need for original creative inspirations.

Donald Judd ? Didn't he design book shelves for IKEA ?
Or was it the prototype of refrigerator cooling coils?

Robert Smithson does less interesting "crop circles" only in mud and rocks. Hurricanes Katrina created several profound and extremely emotionally moving earthworks.

Sol LeWitt is a combination of parque floors, phallic stalagmites, studies of ice cracks in a pond, and some pieces are a mix of O'Keeffe Georgia meets Warhol and Dorothy Gillespie.
(Only each one of them did it better.)

RE: Og the Bison painter

Personally I prefer the work of Og's predecessor
"Moog the Grinder".

He was the first to grind cadmium for pigments.
He also would grind rose petals, fresh grass, marigolds, clays, fish heads, berries, wild pig's bladders.. Basically he's grind anything he could get his grubby hands on and then smear it free-hand over tanned deer hides.

Not many people know this but he invented the first mural house coverings and rain poncho.

And Moog's cousin (and wife) Allie Opp was the Martha Stewart of her day. She would collect fresh urine from family members to add a touch of "Indian yellow" to the palette during the dark seasons.

Og the Bison painter was too much of a Primitive Painter.
Consider the work of Lothar of the Hill People. His early earthenworks were impressive. I believe he perfected the "pile of rocks" method long before Smithson.

Not this group. An obsession builds, not an obsession of the flesh but of the mind, mouse and keyboard.. Theres a sign post (posting) up ahead... "I have the feeling about 60 percent of what you say is crap.".
===================================================

David Letterman - On January 4, 2006, O'Reilly appeared on the David Letterman program. When O'Reilly began a discussion on the alleged War on Christmas, Letterman replied, "I think that this is something that happened here, and it happened there, and so people like you are trying to make us think that it's a threat." Leterman accused O'Reilly of making up some of his claims on particular points on the supposed War, and O'Reilly replied with, "Then I could write for your show." When O'Reilly attacked the motivations of Cindy Sheehan, Letterman took exception, saying O'Reilly had never lost a family member in a war, and therefore O'Reilly could not speak for Sheehan's motivations. Letterman eventually said, "I have the feeling about 60 percent of what you say is crap.". The next day on his program, O'Reilly called Letterman "a card-carrying member of the secular progressive movement"".

Brushmeisters of Brooklyn is a group of three Brooklyn-based artists who have come to their art in different ways. The unifying theme of the group is Sumi-E, or Japanese brush Painting.

www.brushmeistersofbrooklyn.net

Eva G. Mihovich, Carol Itzkowitz Neiman and John Dilgen have at one point or another in their artistic careers, studied this ancient, expressive and spiritual art form.

The Brushmeisters collective works reflect a fusion of Eastern and Western sensibilities.

I wonder what precocious adolescent hanging out in churches could learn from a kindly old cleryman? Did his hands submit to an Intellect ? Alter the boy ?

NEWS FROM THE LIBRARIES
Copyright ? 2005 The New School

THE NEW SCHOOL LIBRARIES LAUNCH FASHION DESIGN HISTORY WEBSITE

With funding from the Coby Foundation, Ltd., the New School Libraries have digitized more than 1,500 fashion design sketches selected from the vast collection in the Anna-Maria and Stephen Kellen Archives Center for Parsons The New School for Design. Drawn by Claire McCardell, Norman Norell, and Mildred Orrick, these sketches form the basis for the Fashion Design History Collection, a growing electronic resource documenting the history of 20th century fashion.

The Fashion Design History collection images reflect the metamorphosis of women?s fashion from the 1920s through the 1950s.

Exploring themes of functionality and form, the designers whose work is represented in the collection demonstrate how fashion has evolved along with women?s changing roles. The collection provides users with primary source materials that illustrate the design process from concept to production to market introduction.

The database?s images have been scanned at a high resolution, enabling researchers to view erasure marks and line starts and stops, allowing the process of design, as well as its object, to be examined.

The Fashion Design History collection, which can be accessed at http://library.newschool.edu/speccoll/fashionhistory will continue to grow as images are added to the database in the coming months. This collection is supported by a grant from the Metropolitan New York Library Council (METRO).

Cy-T,

If the newest posts were at the top, everything would read backwards. You would read the answer before the question, the witty comeback before the snide criticism.

Perhaps you're using the downward arrow to scroll down the page? That does take a long time. Just left click on the "slider bar" at the right side of your browser, drag it to the bottom of the screen, and then release the mouse button. You'll be at the end of the page in less than a second. You'll also find that with a little practice, this is the fastest way to move anywhere on the page you want to be.

You're not the first person to complain about scrolling to the bottom, so I just added a link at the top of each topic page which will take you down to the last posts at the bottom instantly.

Way back when there was a posting

2004-12-14

The Suicide Girls have been seen as many things from Performance Artists to soft porn to the rebirth of Burlesque. Whatever you call them they celebrate the female figure and creative sillyness.

Now fast forward to March 2006 : The Suicide Girls Video Downloads numbered 1/2 million downloads in the first 24 hours for new Suicide Girls Video iPod ... Shit... if only ATOA had booked these playful nymphs for a panel instead of the comatose version of drawing from the figure. if you're gonna play academics then do the math. This type of figure drawing ( Molly Crabapple, ect) would have drawn in an overflow crowd and then some. Even the freakin SVA students would have hung around !

Rather than discuss Tila Tequila, paris Hilton or Suicide Girls - I'd like to mention last week's ATOA panel dedicated to "Performance: aLive Art".

LISTED AS FOLLOWS
http://www.atoa.ws/Spring2006/March.htm#Mar

"An evening of live, digital & virtual performances with video, recorder music, butoh, mysterious props, movement, stillness, costumes, nudity, no sex, sex, voice, text, tinfoil, crying, singing, love, noise, sound, silence and so forth.The theme of the evening? (though not the performances) to be performance art in general & the 7 Years of Living Art in particular; how it came to be & what it means to our work. Annie Sprinkle & Elizabeth Stephens, performance artists, art-lifers, creators of Loveartlab project will appear virtually."


Firstly Kudos to Annie Sprinkle and all she has done as a performance artist. She is recovering from breast cancer surgery so we only saw the DVD of her work. All and all she's the kind of woman I'd rather praise that just Cyber Marketing gawk gals.

Another NY rock was Martha Wilson playing the fomer first lady Barbara Bush. She played her character well but the material (writing) wasn't funny enough.
(Actually I find the real Bush family hilarious and totally surreal - you can't write some of his fuk-ups and still have people find it believeable)

And the one thing I totally hated was Aman playing the experimental clarinet in an obnoxois high pitched tone.
His female partner played this lame folksong on guitar.
But maybe I misunderstood. Maybe our booing was part of
evening's performance ? Audience participation ?
Like Bush voters finally realing in pain at the sound of one more Good Ol George-Boy Bush speech ?

Friday, May 26, 2006 The Betty Cuningham Gallery will open an exhibition of the recent paintings and sculpture of Judy Glantzman. Glantzman is a native New Yorker and a 1978 graduate of Rhode Island School of Design. Shown in New York since 1983, Glantzman is distinguished particularly by her early shows in the East Village with Gracie Mansion and subsequently at BlumHelman and Hirschl & Adler Modern. On exhibit will be approximately twelve recent oil paintings dating from 2004 to 2006 accompanied by thirty small figurative sculptures dating from 1990 to the present. While these paintings, which range from small, intimate pieces, to larger, wall dominating works, represent Glantzman?s most recent creations in oil on canvas, this will be the first time her sculptures are exhibited. www.bettycuninghamgallery.com

Figurative Artists and Models Weekend

What: Figurative Artists and Models Weekend
When: August 11-13
Where: Touchstone Center for Crafts in Farmington, PA
Fee: $250 for workshop/$310 for workshop and lodging


Artists of all sorts have the opportunity to work with a variety of live models in multiple settings throughout the weekend.

We have at our disposal a photo studio, rustic cabin and Touchstone's secluded grounds. There's woods, water, rocks and even a waterfall for plein aire painters and landscape photographers. This is a great opportunity to create source material or develop a new body of work.

This is more of a facilitating weekend than a how to workshop but bodypainting and photo studio lighting techniques will be covered for those that are interested.

SVA Marathon Drawing

M,T,W,TH, Jul 31 - Aug 03
Hours: 10:00AM - 05:50PM
Location: 133/141 W. 21st Street
$$$

Open to all levels, this two-day workshop is virtually nonstop drawing. Work with multiple models and props as well as from imagination. The purpose is to not only loosen up, but also to fearlessly approach drawing. Students will work quickly, drawing with various media. Restating and reworking of drawings will be encouraged to create complex works. Ink, paint, oil stick and dry mediums will be used to blur the distinctions between drawing & painting. This workshop is drawing intensive: students will be expected to work hard and will gain a keener understanding of the drawing process.

ODE TO JULY DRAW-A-THON 2006

My life is brilliant
My love is pure.
I saw an angel.
I began to draw

She smiled at me from the runway
She posed with another man.
But I won't lose no sleep on that,
Cause I've got a plan.

She's beautiful.
She's beautiful, it's
true.
I saw her face in that crowded place,
And I know what to do.
I'll take the L train to Bedford
and get another view

She caught my eye,
As she walked
on by
so hot in late July.

But we shared a moment
placed on canvas
that will last 'till the end.

artist Daniel Edwards @ "Museum of Sex"

A presidential bust of Hillary Clinton
is set to be unveiled
at the Museum of Sex
on August 9, 2006 at 10 am.

Accentuating her sexual power and bolstered by the presidential seal, The Presidential Bust of Hillary Rodham Clinton: The First Woman President of the United States of America will be officially open for public viewing on August 9 for a limited six week run.

Artist Daniel Edwards describes this new sculpture as capturing Clinton ?with her head held high, a youthful spirit and a face matured by wisdom. Presented in a low cut gown, her cleavage is on display prominently portraying sexual power which some people still consider too threatening.?

RE : "Censorship & Visual Storytelling"

Model Audrey Munsen

"Filmmaker Clifford Howard was assigned the task of writing a scenario where Ms. Munsen could expose herself to the public. The movie Purity was one of the most costly films they ever produced, and also one of the most profitable. While critics trashed it, and banned in many cities, it became another early motion picture propagating censorship in film."

http://www.visualstorytelling.com/censorship.htm

--------------------------------------------------

RE : " In 1916, probably as a result of her exposure in California at the PPIE, Munson moved to California and entered the movies. In all Munson starred in four silent films. The first of these, Inspiration, the story of a sculptor?s model, featured the first time that a woman took off all her clothes on film. Recreating scenes from classic paintings, the censors were reluctant to ban the film fearing they would also have to ban Renaissance art. The films were a box office success, with audiences eager to expand their new found interest in art. The reviews, however, were very polarized. Unfortunately, only a single print of one film, Purity has survived."

NY artist Alexi Worth was the catalogue essayist for Philip Pearlstein's last show. But now Mr. Worth is having his own
one-person show at the DC Moore Gallery gallery ( 2nd time), featuring a dozen paintings depicting men and women looking at mirrors, monitors, magazines, and each other.

Alexi Worth
exhibtion "Couples"
September 7 ? October 7, 2006

Opening Reception Thurs., Sept 7 from 6:00 to 7:30 pm

RE: "Both comical and somber, the new paintings embody Worth?s preoccupations with narrative, with cartooning and caricature, and increasingly, with photography."

"Several of the new paintings were made under what Worth calls "an obtuse, slowed down version of photographic flash." Worth placed bright photo-studio lights directly behind him, so that his models? bodies were brightly lit, but their faces eclipsed by the artist?s own shadow."

"Art historian Svetlana Alpers comments, "Alexi Worth is a terrific image-maker. His paintings stick in the mind. What you remember, however, is not quite what you get. For all the smoothness of surface, clarity of outlines and elegance of design, Worth doesn?t make it easy to grasp what is going on. Much of the interest lies in the puzzling nature of what you are given to see. And that springs from a heightened and quirky sense of relationships -- between things, between people, between the artist, his tradition, and himself."

Using Line in Figure Painting
by Dawn Whitelaw

" This reclining figure has been drawn well and exhibits good, simple color harmony. The composition is quite effective—the diagonal line extending from the pillow in the upper-right section of the painting, moving over the hand and hip, and ending in the lower-left corner of the painting is particularly lyrical.

Sigmund Abeles' Five-Minute Drawings
by Bob Bahr - Nov 2006
© 2006 VNU Business Media

In a recent workshop, Abeles stressed the importance of good beginnings by having the students execute five-minute drawings of various nearby objects.

“This will teach you to compose,??? he said. “You must be able to see things as a whole instead of a collection of details. Working for such a short time, you are forced to do that.

The quick drawings revealed fundamental problems in each student’s approach, enabling Abeles to address the basic issues. By having each student draw a rectangular border on the paper to delineate the limits of the composition, the instructor reinforced the notion that compositional choices are crucial in these quick sketches.

RE: "FINISHED WITH FINE ART"
Taking it all off at Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School

By Sheila McClear / Jan 2007


When Bettie Page began posing nude in the 1950s for New York City’s camera clubs—amateur photography groups for gentlemen—scandalized critics whispered that they didn’t even have film in their cameras: They were simply using them as an excuse to look at a naked woman.

That said, nothing cures a hangover at 3 p.m. on a Saturday like drinking more beer and admiring sequined, sporadically costumed models—you know, the kind of girls who wouldn’t go home with you after that one night at Piano’s—all in the name of art. Refreshingly, Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School admits its sketchiness upfront—whatever happened to the old, weird New York?—and on Saturday afternoons twice a month, amateur and professional artists, scarred by memories of art-school dullness, gather for their own kind of life-drawing session.

Thanks to the power of the Internet and clever self-promotion by its founder, illustrator Molly Crabapple, and her co-host, cartoonist/illustrator John Leavitt, one-year-old Dr. Sketchy’s has expanded to 16 cities, including Toronto, Berlin and Melbourne.

New Year's resolutions, many of which are likely to be broken by the time you read this
by Tricia Romano / January 1st, 2007 9:34 PM

New Year's resolutions can be a way to start the year with a clean slate—or they can be self-imposed guilt trips. But dreams can come true: Trinity's Aimee Phillips points out that last year's goal was to get a boyfriend, and "I did it!! I now have a cute, sweet boyfriend, which I believe is the only New Year's resolution I've ever kept." There's hope after all—so I resolve to stop sulking.

As for everyone else . . .

RE: Dirty Martini: "This year, I want to share that love of myself and the love I feel for my very unique New York family, with their wonderful values of peace and nudity for all, and spread it across the globe! And when I say spread, I really mean spread—in 2007, I take off on tour with the Sex Workers Art Show!"

RE: Peppermint Gummybear: "I resolve to spend extra time taking care of my friendships and the people whom I love—and this time, to ask if he's a cop before taking the money!"

RE: Singer Lizzy Yoder: "To eat like I'm going to the chair, drink like the bar's running dry, and smoke like the tobacco crop is dwindling. No, wait, the opposite of that. Oh, and to sing my ass off all over town."

RE: Roxy Cottontail: "To become bicoastal in Miami and/or L.A. On New Year's Eve, I will be living it up in Miami."

Michael Alan Art, Dr. Sketchy, Molly Crabapple...

Let's talk about the real pioneer in New York's bohemian sketch groups ; The Project of Living Artists . . . established in 1968 by Joe "Mole Man" Catuccio !!!

Almost 40.. yes count em ... FORTY YEARS !!!

In the early days of 1968... The Museum of The Project of Living Artists was formed by unique hippie artists in Greenwich Village.

The Project was originally intended to be a communal artist space, So it became one of the first alternate spaces in the city. Then, throughout 1969—1971, the members drifted different ways—since as a communal space, it was unworkable. So in 1971, Joe was looking for a new space, in order to keep The Project going. And he found a basement space in the barren and budding canyons of Soho.

Housed in its previous address at 133-135 Greene Street, in New York city, and starting in 1971, it became legendary that, ever since Joe first landed on the island of Manhattan, the Project has been home to a multi-faceted array of creatures and causes ranging from a 24-hour exhibit space, an original buyers club, a center for poetry readings and cinema screenings and a shelter for fourteen oddly hued cats.

Thru-out this prolific 3-decade tenure, from the renegade phase of Venice Biennale protest shows to the penniless months when Joe could barely afford coffee yet always prevailed with payments to the models; through the years of fire and water coffeehouse culture forward to the onslaught of punk and the advent of cybersex, Joe's loyalty to life drawing in a mayhem-infused metropolis has been unremitting.

Lady MaxMara Muffdiver
a.k.a. DECLINED THE ROLE OF NAKED MUSE

2007-01-15

Post #: 5533
 

This is from the British new service Guardian Unlimited © Guardian News and Media Limited 2007

The first solo exhibition of American artist Margaret Salmon, winner of the inaugural MaxMara art prize for women in association with the Whitechapel, is at the Whitechapel, London E1, from January 25 to February 11.

Details: www.whitechapel.org

----------------------------------------
Iwona Blazwick ; Guardian News
"Why women artists need prizes of their own"
Saturday January 13, 2007

In 1871 the poet Arthur Rimbaud made a prophecy that would not be fully realised until the 20th century: "When women's unmeasured bondage shall be broken, when she shall live for and through herself, man - hitherto detestable - having let her go, she, too, will be poet! Woman will find the unknown! Will her ideational worlds be different from ours? She will come upon strange, unfathomable, repellent, delightful things; we shall take them, we shall comprehend them."

Perhaps the greatest of the modern avant gardes came with the rise of women artists, writers, film-makers and performers. Having been excluded from the canon, women artists had no choice but to embark on the strange, the unfathomable, the repellent, as well as the delightful.

But it was only from the 1960s onwards that feminism and art really joined forces. Through a series of radical actions and experiments, women artists ranging from Louise Bourgeois to Mary Kelly made the transition from object to subject. With all the oedipal drive of the modernist avant gardes, some took direct aim at the enemy.

Women DECLINED THE ROLE OF NAKED MUSE and of the countless variations on the Madonna/Whore riff that have played throughout western art, to reclaim their bodies.

In 1975 Carolee Schneemann appeared naked in a Long Island gallery. Having first adopted the pose of a life model, she then read out feminist texts inscribed on a scroll that she pulled slowly from her vagina.

In 1979, at the Whitechapel Gallery in the East End of London, audiences could witness Eva Hesse's redefinition of painting and sculpture in installations that fused the two. Others jettisoned the paintbrush and the chisel in favour of the camera, pioneering a new vision in film and photography - we have only to think of Chantal Akerman's meticulous portrait of a widow's survival strategies in Jeanne Dielman (1975) or Cindy Sherman's uncanny self-portraits.

Women artists also insisted on the place of political thought, anthropology and, perhaps most significantly, psychoanalysis within art theory; and that issues of gender could not be seen in isolation from issues of race, class, sexuality and geography.

Representations of women continue to reinforce their absence from spheres of power. And on an individual level, it is without question a challenge for women to continue making work, to earn a living and to remain visible in the art world while having children.

Ella Fitzgerald Postal Stamp Is Unveiled; Jan 2007

Performers from "Jazz at Lincoln Center" sang some Ella Fitzgerald classics Wednesday to commemorate the unveiling of a new stamp bearing the jazz legend’s image.

Fitzgerald grew up in Westchester County where she earned recognition for her singing and dancing. In the 1930s she became famous as a scat singer and worked with the top jazz musicians and composers of the era.

Friends and family say the stamp, based on a 1956 photograph, captures the joy that Fitzgerald once brought to music.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg marked the occasion by making Wednesday "Ella Fitzgerald Day" in the city.

Fitzgerald is the 30th inductee in the Postal Service's Black Heritage stamp series.

Yup... a big time write-up !!

RE: "A World Drawn From Wild Tastes of Molly Crabapple"
article by CAROL KINO

Re: On a recent fall night in Manhattan, the artist Molly Crabapple convened a group of people with drawing pads
for a meeting of Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School, a group she founded in 2005 that now has branches all over the world.

A cross between old-fashioned life-drawing sessions and new-wave cabaret, it usually meets every other Saturday
at the Slipper Room, a burlesque-themed bar on Orchard Street (NYC).
Typically, about 50 artists, Web designers, cartoonists and hipsters alerted by word of mouth or the Internet — pay $12 each to draw a downtown personality like the alternative model Raquel Reed or the performance artist Amber Ray.
