Joel Carson Jones Wins Award at Raymar Art Competition

Cavalier Galleries is pleased to announce that one of our artists Joel Carson Jones, has received an Award from the 6th Raymar Art Competition. The painting "More Than You Can Chew" was selected as a winner out of submissions from over 3,400 artist world-wide.

Juror of Awards Comments:   

I don't think there's a better "Harnett" than this piece!!!  What a skilled technician with an outstanding, creative idea to make it 3-dimensional!  This piece is more than just "fool-the-eye", it has sophisticated color harmonies and unbelievably top notch edge work in a realistic look. I really love looking at this piece. The more I look, the more I see.  And for me, that doesn't usually happen with realistic paintings.  It's a real eye-stopper.  Congrats Joel Carson Jones for "More Than You Can Chew"! - Charles Warren Mundy

Monthly Judge's Comments (April):  Wow. Another unique and original idea of trompe l'Oeil by one of the masters of the genre, Joel Carson Jones. The three-dimensionality of the dropping gumballs is incredible and creates a depth in the work that many trompe l'Oeil paintings simply are not able to achieve. The gumball machine is a perfect way to play with primary colors cast against each other and the shade and shadow of each one is done masterfully. I also enjoy the detail of the metalwork on the faceplate and the nice use of shadows throughout the painting - Joshua Rose

Steve McCurry NYC Exhibition

Steve McCurry Exhibition now open at our NYC Gallery!
 A selection of McCurry’s iconic images, hand selected by the artist, will be on view in our New York gallery from March 1-25, 2013. 15 East 71st Street, Suite 2A, New York, NY 10021, 212.570.4696, Open Wednesday-Friday 11-5, and by Appointment.


 Afghan Girl, McCurry’s most recognizable portrait, will be on view along with 14 other works spanning the past 3 decades.  Included are seminal works from his travels in China, Burma, India, Kashmir, Ethiopia, Thailand, and Kuwait.  McCurry has an uncanny ability to cross the boundaries of culture and language to capture stories of human experience. “Most of my images are grounded in people,” he says. “I look for the unguarded moment, the essential soul peeking out, experience etched on a person’s face. I try to convey what it is like to be that person, a person caught in a broader landscape that you could call the human condition.”

Here are two great videos of Steve McCurry talking about his work:
