Timesless Treasures The Art of Stephen Gjertson by Annette LeSueur ARC Living Master™ Stephen Gjertson is one of a group of contemporary representational artists who call themselves "Classical Realists" : Classical because they have a passion for order, beauty and the great art of the past; Realists because they love the visible world and work primarily from life.

Major Articles Featuring ARC Living Master™ Mario Robinson

March 3, 2010

I have for several years now considered Mario Robinson to be one of the most talented living artists, who also happens to be a well-recognized ARC Living Master™. His paintings capture much of the emotional essence of black America, and he does so with a singular directness which compels empathy in his viewers for the sadness, joy, or psychic torment in nearly every one of his subjects. If you ever have the chance to experience a grouping of his works together, you’re likely to see any number of art loving visitors mesmerized by one powerful composition after another….riveted by this artist's rare and exceptional talent for subtle nuanced dramatic intensity in scenes from everyday life. The simpler his composition the more complex the emotions. Apparently a growing following for his work has been mounting, recently culminating in major articles in The Watercolor Artist Magazine and a second recent interview by Didi Menendez, the editor of Poets and Artists Magazine
[Click here to read the interview].
--ARC Chairman, Fred Ross
The Watercolor Artist magazine, which features the work of Mario Robinson is on newsstands now. Over the years, Mr. Robinson has taken part in several interviews. This particular article is unique, whereas it breaks down his work day and documents his process with corresponding photographs. Written by the features editor, Sarah A. Strickley, the result is an in-depth and well written article. To read an excerpt from Sarah's blog, with "5 Quick Tips from Mario Robinson", click here.
