Faces Fascinate -- Guest curator, Claudia Seymour, was President of the historic Salmagundi Club in New York from 2007 through 2013, six years of great growth and renewal for the organization, and is a widely collected practicing artist. She is a Master Signature Member of the Pastel Society of America and has been awarded Master Circle status by the International Association of Pastel Societies. She is also an Associate Member of the Oil Painters of America. Ms. Seymour is a juried member of the Allied Artists of America, American Artists Professional League, American Women Artists, Audubon Artists, and Catharine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club. She is represented by Handwright Gallery in New Canaan, Connecticut, J.M. Stringer Gallery in Bernardsville, New Jersey, and Vero Beach, Florida, and W.H. Patterson in London, England.
To launch the month of December, Ms. Seymour selected The Poet (charcoal/carbon) by Mateus Costa of Cheltenham, PA. In this remarkable and carefully rendered drawing, we not only see The Poet, we feel also the profound respect and esteem in which the artist holds his friend.
