September Featured Artist: Stanley Maltzman
Stanley Maltzman is a highly acclaimed landscape artist, as well as an accomplished author and educator. He works in a variety of media, most often pastel, watercolor or charcoal, and lives in New York’s Hudson River Valley. He is a member of the Pastel Society of America, Audubon Artists, the Hudson Valley Art Association and the Academic Artists Association.
Stanley’s drawings and paintings have been widely exhibited in museums and galleries throughout the country including The Carnegie Museum of Natural History, The Butler Institute, The National Academy, and The American Academy of Arts and Letters. Recently Stanley’s work has been included in the Pastel Society of America Signature Member Exhibition at the Noyes Museum of Art in Oceanville, NJ and the Northeast Pastel Society exhibition at The View at Old Forge, NY. His work is represented in many collections including the U.S. Coast Guard Museum and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, which acquired three of his works as well as a copy of his book Drawing Nature.
Stanley was chosen to contribute to Art Journey America Landscapes: 89 Painters’ Perspectives (2012). In the past his work has been featured in American Artist and has also appeared in The Artist’s Magazine, Hudson Valley and Kaatskill magazines. He is curator at the Agroforestry Gallery, Acra, New York.
Stanley’s strong belief that good painting evolves from the ability to draw well leads to frequent invitations to lecture and conduct his “plein air” seminars and workshops for high school and adult students.
Stanley Maltzman’s work will be on display at the Guggenheim Gallery September 1–September 30. The Guggenheim Gallery is open to the public Monday–Friday from 9–4. Call ahead for weekend hours. 518-797-5100.
