NoHo Painters/Sculptors  (UNDER CONSTRUCTION)

Chuck Close Self PortraitChuck Close
For more than 30 years, Chuck Close -- renowned as one of America's foremost artists in any media -- has explored the art of printmaking in his continuing investigation into the principles of perception

Canyon, Artist Robert RauschenbergRobert Rauschenberg
In late 1953, he met Jasper Johns, with whom he is considered the most influential of artists who reacted against Abstract Expressionism [more]. The two artists had neighboring studios, regularly exchanging ideas and discussing their work, until 1961.

Africa and Picasso, 2000 Artist Emma AmosEmma Amos
From her early work as a member of the black artist collective Spiral, to recent prints and canvases that deconstruct popular icons (from Picasso to ‘Lil Kim), Emma Amos challenges audiences to consider how ideas about race, sex and identity are constructed and disseminated through images. Her works expose the ways in which images of blackness and non-western cultural forms have been historically appropriated by white artists.

Harran II, Artist Frank Stella
Frank Stella
Stella’s art was recognized for its innovations before he was twenty-five. In 1959, several of his paintings were included in "Three Young Americans" at the Allen Memorial Art Museum at Oberlin College, as well as in "Sixteen Americans" at the Museum of Modern Art in New York (1959–60). Stella joined dealer Leo Castelli’s stable of artists in 1959.

Rain Reflections, Artist Sandy GellisSandy Gellis
Often described as a conceptual artist, Sandy Gellis (born ) works in sculpture, drawing, photography, and printmaking, specializing in Earth, Air, and Water studies. Gellis' public art projects are most successful in their approach and response to the environment.

Kneeling Figure, Artist June Leaf 2006June Leaf
June Leaf’s works, be it iron sculptures, works on canvas or on paper, cannot be viewed as being detached from one another. The sculptures, paintings and drawings are heavily conditioned by one another: her drawings and paintings are also always sketches for her sculptures; the sculptures, in turn, serve as models for her works with brush and pencil. The result is cross-discipline human studies, which never fail to fascinate, not least because of their extraordinary and extremely original details.

Riverhead, Artist Nancy MullerNancy Muller
As an artist I use windows and grids often in my work. Windows are structural and organizing devices that indicate a space within versus the one outside-circumscribing different if not opposing worlds. Windows can imply a sense of self and the other, the familiar and the unknown, the safe and the risky. See also Faces of the Fallen

Mariguana Square, Artist Diane AdzemaDiane Adzema
Diane Adzema is a multimedia artist and designer. Her sculpture and mixed media constructions were exhibited in Audart's "Shrines to Fantasy" exhibition in the Fall of 1996. The most prominent of her contributions to the show was a room-sized installation which documented the destruction of a Catholic Chapel in New York's Little Italy.

                                       Joann Melick
is considered a colorist, extraordinarily sensitive to the expressive and evocative roles that color plays in art and nature. Usually subtle and fragile, sometimes direct and bold, she handles her transitions from light to shadow with absolute precision. She controls the delicate balance of color, light, and form in a painterly parallel to organic growth.

Joan has continued working with the coral forms and has been exhibiting her work in one-woman shows in the U.S. and Paris, France. She has also had work published in Penthouse Magazine; The Whole Sex Catalogue; and the Kitchen Almanac.


Annie Shaver-Crandell  After a first career as a medievalist and professor of art history at The City College of New York, Annie Shaver-Crandell became an artist specializing in plein air landscape. Born and raised in Oberlin, Ohio, she now lives in New York City's historic Noho neighborhood.

 She is attracted to boundaries - the garden wall, the water's edge, the place where the cultivated field, pasture, vineyard, or orchard gives way to the woods and hills. In her home environment of Manhattan, she paints and draws extensively in the community gardens of the Lower East Side. But she travels extensively in pursuit of her subject, and much of her recent work was done in the American Rockies, the Provence region of France, and along the Delaware River.
