We hope you are enjoying some summer diversions, and wish to thank you for your interest and support! Our seasonal update follows:

        Art Advisory/Boston is pleased to announce that several of the artists we represent have recently been recognized for their talents with a number of awards and honors.

        Leslie Kahl’s photograph, "Chair on Beach" was selected by ASID (American Society of Interior Designers) for the cover of their Summer 1999 issue. She has received tremendous positive response since the magazine’s publication. This is one of several images shown at in our "Feature Artist" gallery.

        Roger Goldenberg’s major painting "Spring’s Growth" has been selected by juror Carl Belz to appear in the Ninth Triennial art exhibition at the Fuller Museum of Art in Brockton, MA. The show will run from September 9, 1999 through January 2, 2000. Roger is currently a finalist in the prestigious Individual Artist Grant competition sponsored by the New Hampshire Council on the Arts.

        Matthew Kolodziej was one of six area artists invited to exhibit in "A Quiet Revolution," the annual Lois Foster exhibition at the Rose Art Museum at Brandeis University. The show, which ran from January 21 to March 7, 1999, featured works by Kolodziej and five other abstract painters. The exhibit received very favorable response from art collectors, and glowing reviews in both the Boston Globe and the Boston Herald.

        John Jacobsmeyer has been awarded a 1999 Ragdale Foundation/National Endowment for the Arts fellowship, and will spend several weeks at the Ragdale Foundation, an internationally-acclaimed artist community in Lake Forest, Illinois. Jacobsmeyer’s three-week residency follows a month of teaching figurative painting at the L’Accademia di Belle Arti in Viterbo, Italy.

        Peter Stone followed up a considerable acquisition of his work by the Marriott Residence Inn and Boston Properties Inc., with a four-month exhibit of his noted "Possibilities of Light," paintings of the Arctic landscape, at the New Bedford Whaling Museum. He is currently exhibiting related Arctic compositions in Lerwick, Shetland Islands, Scotland.

        On an entertaining note, Susan Hostetler’s art can be observed in the movie "You’ve Got Mail," gracing the walls for the characters portrayed by Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan. Susan’s paintings are also included in significant private and corporate collections nationwide.

        Last, but by no means least, we were very pleased to be able to complete an acquisition by the Federal Reserve Bank of a three-part oil on canvas triptych, by artist Nancy Friese. This painting is a signature piece from her 1993 painting fellowship in Japan. This was a joint placement by Art Advisory/Boston and the Pepper Gallery of Boston. Nancy has once again received a grant to work on her art overseas this summer

        Art Advisory/Boston is proud to present the work of these distinguished artists on an ongoing basis. A valuable service is provided by the art advisor and consultant to many talented artists, emerging and established, particularly in light of the limited availability of traditional gallery representation.
