Hartford MFA in Illustration faculty members Ted and Betst Lewin have published a new book, How to Babysit a Leopard: and Other True Stories from Our Travels Across Six Continents, available on Amazon now.
Students of the MFA program can get their copy signed this summer at the Contact Period in Hartford.
Get it here:
"If you struggle to turn sticks into figures, then perhaps it is time to seek out a Trained Professional Artist! Illustrator Elwood H. Smith consults his expert funny bone as he leads budding artists through a tutorial on how to draw tricycle- riding pigs, silly-grinning cars, and jousting ketchup bottles. Emphasizing that subjects can be based on everyday materials and that artists have unique styles, this is a workbook that will encourage readers to experiment with their own types of visual expression."
Congratulations to MFA Alumnus Dave Szalay (Class of 2013), who just received word that he has been granted tenure and a promotion to Associate Professor at the Myers School of Art at The University of Akron.
MFA alumnus D.G. Smith (Class of 2015) is participating in the first “Your Art Supplies Exhibition,” sponsored by Jerry’s Artarama of Connecticut. The gallery show features nine artists from Connecticut, focusing on their unique styles, methods, and different use of media available to artists at Jerry’s Artarama. Smith has six works featured in the show: two illustrations completed as part of his MFA thesis course work at the University of Hartford and three new illustrated portraits of Hartford historical celebrity, Mark Twain, to celebrate the regional focus of the gallery exhibit.
The show opening is May 9th, from 6 – 9 pm, at The Hartford ArtSpace, 555 Asylum Ave, Hartford CT. The show runs from May 9th to May 30th. More information, including bios of each artist, is available at www.yourartsupplies.com/exhibition.
