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 three Curators' Choice nominees for July, (starred dates in the list): 1* Profile with Bare Breast (oil) by David Schulz of Middletown, CT; 11* Saint Claudia (oil) by Jean Marcellino of New York, NY; 19* Twisted Torso (sculpture|wood) by Larry Scaturro of Brooklyn, NY.
Seven artworks are being retired, having now appeared in three calendars: "La Note d'amour Francaise" by Bruce Erikson of Maineville, OH; Antigone's Dilemma: Enthroned by Christopher Smith of Philadelphia, PA; Daron, February 2014 by Peter Millward of Stamford, CT; Twisted Torso by Larry Scaturro of Brooklyn, NY; Comfortably Rounded by Jacqui Morgan of New York City, NY; Goldie by Barrie Ripin of Bethesda, MD; Marlo Lost in Stripes by Jean Marcellino of New York, NY.
