New York, NY, December 28, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- With a deep appreciation of the city in its many guises, New York artist Judith Gwyn Brown has created a unique opportunity for investors in fine art: “The New York Series,” ten framed oil-on-canvas paintings that tell the stories of New York in an unparalleled and personal way. Investors who choose to support this work are encouraged to purchase the series (rather than individual paintings), with the intention of displaying them in a permanent collection for public viewing and enjoyment. The initial offering price is $150,000.
So that admirers and gallery-goers from around the world may easily view her work, Brown also has launched an online studio at www.judithgwynbrownstudio.com. In addition to showcasing “The New York Series,” the online studio features other favorite paintings and drawings and information about upcoming events.
Brown is a renowned painter of men and women moving through the light, space and the shadows of intimate and mysterious settings. Her paintings and drawings are in permanent collections of The Metropolitan Museum of Art and The Morgan Library in New York; The Boston Public Library; The Huntington Library in California, and university collections across the country.
Each scene in “The New York Series” represents the emotional intensity of intimacy in the city, yet the atmosphere is created by paint. Thin glazes, transparent and flowing, are set off by smoky shadows, some rough and grainy, brushed across the canvas, contrasted by the high brilliance of light.
“We see men and women coming together by a fountain in the park, or watching each other across the distance of a theater as a play is in progress,” said Brown. “They walk down the long perspectives of a museum gallery; we follow them by the river front as they lean against a railing, looking out toward the city skyline across the sun bright water. And we secretly observe them in a restaurant, their whispered conversations reflected to infinity in a double mirror.”
To Brown, having an investor display “The New York Series” in the permanent collection of the New York Public Library or another major institution in the city she loves would be the ideal setting for the pieces.
“Of course, an art collection like ‘The New York Series’ requires the same strategic planning as other financial assets; yet, with the help of skilled advice, it can become an effective working asset for individual investors,” noted Brown. “Many individual investors are art lovers, own collections, or actively buy and sell in the art market. They require someone who shares their passion for art and understands and appreciates the significance and pleasure of investing in art and collectibles of high value. I believe that is something I can uniquely provide.”
