Guest curator Alex Katlan, art conservator, author and collector, painstakingly reviewed each of the 400+ artworks submitted for the January show. When it was over, he said, “I was looking for competence in the execution of the work, not so much the style.” The January calendar selection is evidence of his flexibility and interest in a variety of media and approaches. Alex was especially interested in the oil paintings, but also chose work which crossed over between two art forms, mentioning specifically, Chanit Roston’s Uplifted, (painting and sculpture), and Dan McCormack’s Annelise... (photography and digital). Alex selected Marc Kehoe’s oil, Above Ancona, for the important first Saturday of the month. He admired Jean Marcellino’s, graphite portrait, Bellisima, which, perhaps with a tribute to its title, starts the New Year. Jacqui Morgan’s Darlinda & Pinky celebrating Christmas made him laugh out loud. He also liked Ephraim Natkins solid pen and wash drawing of a seated man, which has the honor of ending January.

Alex Katlan’s latest book is The Black and White Exhibitions of the Salmagundi Sketch Club 1878 to 1887: A Guide to Etchings, Engravings, Drawings, Sculpture, Ceramics, Oils and Monotypes.
