You’ll love this issue of Southwest Art
- You love discovering new talent and emerging artists—the promising masters of the coming generation.
- You love the urban landscape and how different artists interpret, in art, the bustle and hum of the city.
In the September 2014 issue of Southwest Art
, we’ll introduce you to some of the most talented young artists we’ve discovered over the past year. From two just- or recently-out-of-high school painters Julia Maddalina and Brittany Weistling, who pursue art on opposite coasts, to Mervyn Vowles, the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts student who has given up everything, twice, to pursue his fine-art career. Meet these and 18 other prodigies who promise great representational art in the coming years.
In this issue we check in again with Putney Painter Nancy Guzik, who, when she expressed an interest in fine art growing up, was led to believe there were no great artists or opportunities in fine art. Then she discovered the artwork, the mentorship, and the fairy tale of Richard Schmid. Also in the September issue, meet California artist Calvin Liang, who traveled through a closed communist China, an emigration to the United States, and a career in animation to become the fine-art landscape painter he dreamed about as a child. Share his journey and his passion for the natural world in the September issue.
Also in this issue, we preview 23 art shows around the West and beyond, from Cannon Beach, OR, to Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado to the Grand Canyon Celebration of Art to the Quest for the West Show at the Eiteljorg Museum in Indianapolis.
