Organs for Art

I want to introduce to you a young artist I recently discovered in San Francisco at the John Pence Gallery. In my humble opinion, Jeremy Mann is a virtuoso. His paintings have a wonderful sense of atmosphere, and sophisticated control of color. He has no trouble painting any subject whether figure, still life, landscape or cityscape. He also seems to be quite prolific. If this beautiful square composition had not been sold, I would have seriously thought of selling off one of my kidneys to have been able to look at it always.

He currently has 25 compositions at the Christopher Hill Gallery in St. Helena, CA and is a featured artist in the O & S: Artists and Poets Magazine which you can read online HERE.

Lastly, Novemeber 13th will be the opening for a show of his paintings at the Principle Gallery, in Alexandria Virginia. If you would like to be in the 'know' and follow this rising talent's lift off, then you should sign up on his web site for announcements and upcoming events here. Enjoy!

  4. I am so glad you all are enjoying the art that I love to admire too.

    I'm busy finally figuring out what I'm going to paint for my Solo show coming up next Fall. I should have been working on it this whole time, and I am now woefully behind. But there's nothing like a deadline to get you into high gear!
