New Artists: Jain Tarnower & Joe Gitterman
Angus Calf, Oil on Canvas, 20 x 26
Jain Tarnower is a graduate of the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston with a degree in painting. Born in nearby Pittsfield, MA, Tarnower now resides in Boston. Formally a portrait painter, Tarnower now uses animals as her subject matter. Her paintings are large scale, life sized depictions of wildlife and the nature that surrounds it. The animals in her pieces face the viewer and are meant to be seen as monumental.
Movement 3, Bronze, 8 x 8 x 6
Joe Gitterman is a bronze sculpture from Connecticut who is greatly influenced by the shapes and momentary poses created by a dancer. The lines of a dancer’s body are often the source of inspiration that he sets out to capture in his work. Through observation and sketches, Gitterman conceives a visual image of motion. His sculptures are an abstraction of gesture frozen in mid flight.

Gracia Dayton is Best in Show!
A big congratulations to Gracia Dayton, who was recently awarded “Best in Show” in the New England Regional Juried Exhibition hosted by Westfield State University for the New England Watercolor Society.
Judging the exhibition was Nava Grunfeld, a juror for the 2011 cover contest for “Artist’s Magazine” and was recently featured in a 10 page spread in “American Artist Magazine”.
Grunfeld had the difficult decision of selecting 66 watercolors from 600 watercolor entries for the exhibit.
When speaking of first place winner Dayton, Grunfeld says, “I was immediately drawn to Dayton’s ‘Mountain Pines’ for the confidence and skill the artist demonstrated with the use of the medium. The colors are exquisite, the image abstracted from nature but in an original way with spontaneity and excellence.”
