Along with part two of Muffie's art collection, I'll soon have a great portrait story to share from one of our favorite editors. Her childhood portrait is quite classic and has little relation to the circa 1960 Bucci above, but Cole Pratt Gallery has just added to its site even more works from the Mississippi-born artist and I had to share this one: Untitled Face, oil on paper, 12 x 9 inches, $500.
Over at Emily Amy Gallery they are gearing up for tomorrow's opening of Paint as Subject: New Works by Dorothy Goode, James Leonard, Melanie Parke and Carl Plansky. Stop by for the reception on Friday, April 10, from 7 to 10 p.m. Shown second from the top is Melanie Parke's Beach Party, oil on canvas, 16 x 16 inches.
Looking ahead to June, the mixed media work of New Orleans artist Katie Rafferty will be on view through the month at Cole Pratt Gallery. The opening reception is scheduled for Saturday, June 6 from 6 to 8 p.m. Shown above is Reentry, monotype/mixed media/paper, 14.5 x 14.5 inches, $600.
