This week has been full of good news for our artists. Jason Lascu won a third place prize in the Viridian Artists 20th Annual International Juried Competition. It was juried by Elisabeth Sussman and curatored by Whitney Museum, NYC. Viridian Artists is an artist-owned, professionally operated gallery, located in New York City in the prestigious Chelsea region of Manhattan, home to some of New York’s finest and most highly respected art galleries. Congratulations, Jason!

We are thrilled to congratulate one of our artist, Carol Es, for being awarded the very prestigious Pollock-Krasner Award! The Pollock-Krasner Foundation awards grants to international artists who have worked over a significant period of time, have recognizable artistic merit and financial need. It was started in 1985 and made possible by the generosity of the late Lee Krasner, a leading abstract expressionist painter and widow of Jackson Pollock. We are so proud of Carol and know she will do amazing things with the grant.
We are very excited to bring Todd Gordon into the gallery. He is an amazing realist painter and his work will be featured in our October show. Check out more of his work here: http://tinneycontemporary.com/artists/details/todd_gordon/
We are pleased to invite Andee Rudloff as guest curator for our next show. We are very excited about this exhibit and welcome the new artists to the gallery. Andee is a professional artist living and working mostly in Tennessee and Kentucky. She specializes in murals and paintings, and exhibits widely throughout the region. She was recently voted Best Community Art Energizer by the Nashville Scene. She also spends her time teaching and coordinating art exhibitions and events – especially at her Morris Alley Studio (aka “The Pie House”). Andee currently serves as the Educator for Community Engagement at the Frist Center for the Visual Arts. Her first curatorial effort for the Frist Center, Seeing Ourselves:Photographs of Safe Haven, has been extended until August 9th, 2009, due to popular demand.
