Winter, 1990. Oil, canvas, 20 x 20 in

The group was selected by guest juror, Nancy Ellen Craig, a distinguished portrait artist who has worked professionally for over forty years and continues to be active at 84. Her portraits include prominent creative American figures such as Hans Hofmann (the only portrait he sat for), Frank Lloyd Wright, Edwin Dickinson and Anjelica Huston, as well as foreign nobles and the Christopher Forbes Family (Forbes Publishing). Her work is in numerous public collections including the Metropolitan Museum of Art NY and the Baltimore Museum. She is a recipient of the 2008-9 Pollock-Krasner Award as well as several awards in the 1950s including the 1951 National Association of Women Artists, Mary Karasick Portrait Prize. Craig has earned her living painting traditional portraits, but the work she makes for herself are mural-sized canvases inspired by mythology, the Bible, politics and her imagination. Currently a body of these paintings, shown for the first time publicly, is on exhibit in the de Menil Gallery at the Groton School (Groton, MA) through June 3, 2012.
