A World of Form -- Guest curator, James Patrick Reid, is a New York City-based artist and teacher. 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's powerful understanding of composition as evident from his short videos, reachable from his website, explaining the compositions in the works of "old and modern masters."

Mr. Reid selected three Curators' Choice nominees for June, (starred dates in the list): 1* Roberto (pastel) by Marie-Paule Martin of New York City, NY; 14* DAD & BABY 16 11 (drawing) by Jon Rettich of New York, NY; 21* There You Were, My Friend (watercolor) by Ilene Skeen of New York, NY.
