"'Helen Roman' helped establish The Fashion Workshop NYC with Stephen Stipleman of WWW and taught art & design at the New York School for Media Arts. Her distinctive illustrations appeared in major fashion magazines and weekly in the New York Times for Abercrombie and Fitch. Her international accounts included promotion for Spain and Italy as well well as individually for Ferragamo, Prada, Yogi Yamamoto et al. Her extensive study of drawing and painting as expressed through illustration paved the way for her natural transition to portraiture. She is currently working on a series of celebrity portraits, and on portraits from shots that she took in Africa. Helen Roman attended Fordham University, The School of Visual Arts and FIT. Ms. Roman was creative supervisor and art director of Roman Assoc. NYC." Courtesy Westport News. See her Facebook page.

The chains are broken to symbolize the breaking of cultural and religious chains that prevent women from moving forward.

The large scale of her stretched paintings seek to amplify the relief found in simplification and the basic nature of materials speak to the essential.

For the first time since its creation in the wake of the French Revolution, the Musée du Louvre in Paris will be headed by a woman. Laurence des Cars, 54, the current president of the Musée d'Orsay and the Musée de l'Orangerie, was appointed on Wednesday as the new president-director of the Louvre by French President Emmanuel Macron. On September 1, Des Cars will replace the museum's leader of eight years, Jean-Luc Martinez, who had been seeking a third term but had recently come under fire while seeking reappointment. Martinez, a trained archaeologist from a working-class background, became director in 2013 after a long reign by upper-class art historians. Des Cars' nomination appears to be a return to this tradition. Descended from a French noble family of writers, she is a specialist in 19th-century painting. Read FULL Article here...

In March 2020, as the world was acclimatising itself to the pandemic, David Hockney released an image of bright yellow daffodils titled "Do remember they can't cancel the spring". In the midst of such fear and uncertainty it offered a much-needed burst of optimism, reminding us all that nature, with its continuing cycles of rebirth and renewal, could still offer hope. Hockney has long appreciated the natural world, both for its aesthetic inspiration and therapeutic qualities: "We can only replenish ourselves by looking at nature," he has said. It is a viewpoint many of us have come to share over the past year as we have taken long walks to calm our racing minds. The results can be tangible; a mere 20 minutes in a natural environment has been proven to lower stress levels. Even looking at images of nature can induce some of the same effects, so it is perhaps no surprise that visitors have been flocking to Hockney – Van Gogh: The Joy of Nature at The Museum of Fine Arts in Houston.

Regardless of your experience with social media, communicating across different platforms can take time and some strategic thinking. Creative Capital has created a guide of best practices for artists who want to gain a following on the most popular digital platforms - Email, Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.  Download the PDF here...
