New York Art World - Minerva Studio



Last week I signed a contract for Spring Studio to remain four more years at 293 Broome Street.

Now I must raise money to pre-pay half of a year's rent, as I did last year with your generous help.

This year, to raise money, I will sell my artwork at four quiet, celebratory fundraising events at the new studio at 293 Broome St. Sorting through figure drawings I drew in Spring Studio as many as 25 years ago, I have found some beautiful works that I offer for sale for very reasonable prices.

$50 (fifty-dollar) FUNDRAISERS
four Sundays, 5:00 to 8:00 pm:

Sun November 6 (the clocks will have fallen back that morning)

Sun November 13

Sun December 4

Sun December 11

Minerva's Drawing Studio
-- Spring Studio
293 Broome St, NYC
(Between Eldridge and Forsythe Streets)
Nearest subway stations:
Grand Street - B,D
Bowery - J,Z

All are welcome, but please RSVP "Yes" if you can.

Entrance to the fundraising events is $50. Your donation of fifty dollars includes refreshments (dumplings, soda and wine) and a voucher for $50 to be used in the purchase of my drawings and some paintings that I have never exhibited.

Drawings are valued at $50, $100, $200, (quick sketches and instructional and anatomical drawings) to $2,000 for large pastel still lifes.

The first Sunday I will present three of my yet unseen vintage oil paintings, offered for $5,000 each: a still life; a small reclining nude; and a monotone study of a disarticulated skeleton scattered on a table top. (I bought my first set of human bones after reading Robert Beverly Hale's suggestion that disarticulated bones reveal more
than articulated skeletons. When the bones arrived, I threw them on a table and painted their image on a canvas.)

Each Sunday I will replenish the stack of available drawings, and, as the paintings are sold,
I will offer larger and more expensive works.
