11/08/12 - A friend of mine told me that I had to check out Aaron Kizer and his Abe Lincoln painting that he created in under 6 minutes. I was impressed, mostly because I can barely draw a smily face. Thus, I told him I would do a post about it. Click here to watch a video of him painting it.

Art: John Whalley Has An Opening This Month

10/02/12 - Greenhut Galleries presents John Whalley's World of Wonders from October 4th through the 27th. The Opening Reception is Thursday October 4th from 5-7 PM. John will have an "Artist's Talk" on Saturday, October 6th at 1:30 PM. The gallery hours are  M-F 10-5:30 and Sat. 10-5.

World of Wonders is John Whalley's 4th solo show with Greenhut Galleries.  This body of work continues Whalley's style of exquisitely rendered paintings and drawings.  Advancing the tradition of American realists and acknowledging the Dutch masters, Whalley's works go well beyond mere technique.  His work exudes tremendous warmth, luminosity and charm. He responds to what he calls "the beauty that speaks softly."  Carl Little stated in Art New England, June/July 2008,  "Whalley does not simply reproduce the objects that resonate with him; he transforms them by adding light, enlarging them, or arranging them in particular ways to highlight a particular element.  Whalley need not suffer the anxiety of influence - his work is his own....the viewer gravitates to those images that seem signature - ...Here we pause and admire."

Whalley's work is in numerous private, national and international collections as well as the Georgia Museum of Art, Athens, Georgia; the Otto Naumann Collection, New York, New York and the Alfred Bader Collection, Milwaukee, Wisconsin to name a few.  A 30 year retrospective book of drawings and paintings,  John Whalley - In New Light, was published in 2006.  In addition, John Whalley - American Realist was published in 2001.  In 2008, he was featured on the television show Bill Green's Maine.
