Two paintings by Sedrick Huckaby were recently installed in the contemporary galleries at the Blanton Museum of Art in Austin, as part of a long-term loan. Curator Veronica Roberts says, "Sedrick has the painterly chops of the Old Masters and while invested in the time-worn tradition of portraiture, applies paint sculpturally with a soulfulness and skill entirely his own."
Congratulations to Brian Cobble for receiving the Flora B. Giffuni and Joseph V. Giffuni Memorial Award from the Pastel Society of America for his pastel "El Paso Windows" at the "46th Annual Exhibition" at The Pastel Society of America, 15 Gramercy Park South, New York, NY 10003
