A Spiritual Celebration of Nudes -- 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 arresting image, Still (photography) by William Zuback of West Allis, WI. Especially in Still, but also in many of other the nudes in this calendar, we see an intense spirituality informing the model's appearance and deepening our understanding of the sacred unity of body and soul.
