100 Artists of the Mid-Atlantic


Early last year I was contacted by author E. Ashley Rooney to contribute work for a book she was planning about Eastern seaboard artists. Thank goodness this was not another "pay-to-play" publishing offer (many of us receive them almost daily), but a real book by a real author; Ms. Rooney has written and edited a number of acclaimed books on art and other subjects.

It arrived recently, and I am blown away by the quality of the work, reproduced with stunning accuracy. Nearly all mediums are represented, and Rooney has selected an astounding group of artists to illustrate the creative talent of the Mid-Atlantic states. Truly a volume to be proud of, for the artists, author, and publisher. (I circled my pic on the cover!) 224 pages on very high quality paper, hardbound, complete artist information and bibliography, foreword by Charles Yoder. Available from Schiffer Publishing Ltd, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and other booksellers.

Catherine - a bit behind in the blog world, sorry not to respond until now. It's quite a book, and there is talk about arranging a show with as many of the artists as possible. Hope it happens, that would be fun.Wonder if there' a castle we can hire? :)

Helen - nice to see you here, thanks for the post

Jane - ditto!

Elaine - congrats really in order for Ashley Rooney for assembling such a great cast
