Summer Art Fare -- James Patrick Reid is a New York City-based artist and teacher. He is a member of the Painting Center gallery in Manhattan. Reid has served on the Fine Arts faculty at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City, the Art Students League, and the New York Academy of Art. He has lectured numerous times at Parsons School of Design, the New York Studio School, and at art schools and universities around the country. His lecture subjects range from "Art and Metaphysics" (at Oregon State University) to "A structural Comparison of Tintoretto's Raising of Lazarus and Seurat's Evening, Honfleur" (at the New York Studio School).

James Reid's published writings have appeared in American Arts Quarterly, Westwind Arts and other publications.

When asked what he looks for in art, Mr. Reid answered:

There is a quality which characterizes the great art of all epochs and styles, from the Chauvet caves to Mondrian. It is vital form, form that lives thanks to the integrity and completeness of its relationships of line, shape, and tone, and by virtue of the resonance of the volumes and the space. Great abstract art aims directly at this quality, and the masterpieces of representational art from antiquity to the present time impressively embody it. This is the standard by which I judge art.

Mr. Reid selected Julie Reflecting (watercolor) by Marie-Paule Martin of New York City, NY to launch the month of July.
