Retrospective of Artist Hilda Green Demsky Held in Larchmont TodayRetrospective of Artist Hilda Green Demsky Held in Larchmont Today
by BWW News Desk - October 25, 2014

Opening Reception: Today, October 25 3-5pm MAG Gallery, 126 Larchmont Avenue, Larchmont, NY. Hours: Tues-Sat 11-5pm. Exhibition Oct 21-November 15. Hilda Green Demsky, a Fulbright Fellow, recipient of the National Endowment for the Arts grant and winner of the Andy Warhol Visual Arts Residency, has had an extensive, multi-faceted career focusing on the ebb and flow of her life. From the Pennsylvania coal mines of her youth, to our polluted waterways, to the cosmos, to the parks of New York and New England (Artist-in-Residence at Acadia National Park), Ms. Demsky shares the highlights of her career as a fine artist in this 60-year retrospective exhibition. After graduating from Carnegie Mellon University in 1958 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Art & Design, Ms. Demsky began paintings of the Alvin Ailey American Dance Company, which were exhibited at City Center Gallery and Lincoln Center. Travel has been a big influence in her outpouring of canvases, as she received numerous art residencies, awards and fellowships from all over the world creating landscape, abstract and environmental paintings. Her outer space artworks were inspired by an invitation to witness a launch at the NASA Space Center in Florida after receiving the Christa McAuliffe Fellowship. Her exhibition at the National Gallery of Costa Rica reflected her love of painting 'en plein air' on canvas and Mylar. A resident of Larchmont, NY, Ms. Demsky has been a member of the Mamaroneck Artists Guild for 42 years and is a member of the Katonah Museum Art Association, the Pen & Brush, and National Association of Women's Artists. The book, 'Hilda Green Demsky: The Flow of the Artist's Life and Work,' containing her biography and more than 100 color photographs of her paintings, will accompany this exhibition.

Leah Selakovic Promotes Scholarships for Female ArtistsLeah Selakovic Promotes Scholarships for Female Artists
by BWW News Desk - October 24, 2014

SINGAPORE - Art blogger and philanthropist Leah Selakovic has long been a supporter of women in the arts. Most recently, she has been vocal on the topic of scholarships for female artists. With the costs of schooling rising astronomically for all fields, paying for college can be an enormous challenge, but for artists who struggle with money to begin with, it is especially overwhelming. Factoring in the fact that schools in the fields of art, music, and film are typically even more expensive and require pricey materials, many young talents are unable to find a way to finance their education. It often pays off to research grants and scholarships that are offered and in recent years, more and more women-centric scholarships have been emerging that are aiming at encouraging female artists to follow their creative career.
