Poets&Artists Magazine: Realism Issue

Back in 2008 I was fortunate enough to have my work shown in the first issue of Poets & Artists magazine, which at that time was called Oranges and Sardines. In 2010 editor Didi Menendez extended me a second invitation and now, sixty six issues later, Didi was kind enough to put my name in the hat for a curated realism issue. Frank Bernarducci, owner of the Bernaducci Meisel Gallery in New York is the guest editor. Frank selected 19 artists from a group of potential candidates from around the world and I was lucky enough to make the cut. It’s an impressive collection of painters, which includes two of my online buddies, Alvin Richard and Lorena Kloosterboer.

If you’re interested in purchasing this issue you can pick up a printed copy produced Blurb or download a pdf. Both methods are accessible from the PA website.

Well deserved, Neil. I hope to see some of your work in person someday since reproductions rarely do justice to the original (although I can't imagine it being any more stunning). You're right there with Goings, Bechtle, Estes, Close, Drury et al. in my book. Congrats on this recognition.

Holy Smokes Steve! That is a great compliment. I've got a looooooong way to go to even approach those artists, but I really appreciate your comment. Thanks, Neil
