Faces & Places of Spring—Guest curator, Sharon Way-Howard, selected Jean Marcellino’s strong graphite image, Sunday Portrait of Adjua to start the month. “I’m in awe of graphite.” Ms. Way-Howard is a widely collected artist, teacher and board member of the prestigious Salmagundi Club. Founded in 1871, the Salmagundi Club is one of the oldest art organizations in the United States. Housed in an historic
brownstone mansion in Greenwich Village, New York City, the Club offers programs including art classes, exhibitions, painting demonstrations, and art auctions throughout the year for members and the general public.
Ms. Way-Howard’s choices focus on strength, sensitivity and humor. For example, she was impressed with Salvador Dali II by Angelique Moselle Price. She acknowledged Jon Rettich’s obvious sensitivity in Tank as Pretzel. Ms. Way-Howard laughed out loud for Duck Soap by Donelli J. DiMaria. She noted that emotions, even laughter are part of the bond the artist uses to connect with the viewer. Acknowledging with a smile (as an experienced mother of boys), “there's a place for this,” she included Booger Boy by Justin Austin.
